What’s up Otters? It’s crazy to think that we are half-way through the semester!

I hope that everyone was successful in their midterms.

On March 5th I had the pleasure of collaborating with President Ochoa for Pizza with the Presidents, and it was an interesting experience. I was glad to see a portion of the campus come out, and voice their minds. We talked about the potential tuition increase, a dream center, sustainability issues, the possibility of having a fall commencement and many other things. If you couldn’t make it to event, and you have some questions go ahead and shoot me an email at president@ascsumb.org.

We have two scholarships from Associated Students that we want everyone to be aware of and you can find more information on them at csumb.edu/as/scholarships.

The first one is the Capstone Grant. If you or any of your friends are in capstone, and are spending any money on your project you want to look into this. All the spending you have done for your project can be reimbursed with this scholarship. Recipients of this Capstone scholarship can be awarded up to $300. All documents must be completed and submitted online by Friday, March 30th, 2018 to be considered as a priority application. All applications must be submitted no later than the final deadline on Friday, April 6th, 2018 to be considered for capstone reimbursement.

The next AS scholarship is the Legacy scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to award students who exemplify outstanding leadership at CSUMB. These are students who have been involved in student organizations, sports, campus committees, volunteerism, and community/civic activism. Recipients of this scholarship work for the betterment of the campus community through their service as a leader. There will be a maximum of ten recipients and each recipient will be awarded at least $1,000. All documents must be fully completed and submitted online by Friday, March 30th, 2018 to be considered as a priority application (and priority applicants will get first consideration).  All applications must be submitted no later than the final deadline on Friday, April 6th, 2018 to be considered for capstone reimbursement.

Please check out the website, and don’t freak out! There is still time for you to get a scholarship application in!

Hang in there Otters, Spring Break is only days away!

Best,

Lauren McClain
