The CSULB Alumni Association is the link between the University and its more than 285,000 graduates to garner their support for The Beach.
It sponsors various alumni programs, communication vehicles to inform alumni about their alma mater, and supports the University with departmental grants and student scholarships including the prestigious President's Scholars Program.
The Association is governed by a volunteer board of directors who serve as alumni ambassadors for the university, promote its mission, and reconnect alumni with the institution. Other volunteers assist with its other programs such as Homecoming, commencement hospitality, Concerts in the Grove, and other events.
Membership dues for CSULB graduates and credential holders is a one-time $49 fee. For non-graduates, including alumni who took CSULB classes but did not graduate, the fees is $49 for the first year and $25 annually thereafter.
The main benefit for members is to keep informed about their alma mater through its magazine "Beach Connection" and e-communiques. In addition, members have access at all CSU libraries (check with campus library for alumni benefits), discounts at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center events and home 49er athletic games, discount on rental of the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden, and access to various group insurance policies (medical, home, auto, life, etc.). Alumni also can access the CSULB Career Development Center for an annual fee.
