Provost greets students

On Friday, Aug 24th campus was buzzing with excitement as students were checking in and moving into their new on-campus homes. Along with all the chaos was Dr. Bonnie Irwin, the Provost for California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB), along with many other Faculty members handing out t-shirts.

On what the faculty members were referring to as the “Welcome wagon” Dr. Irwin was greeting parents and students all over campus. The Provost wanted to ensure that all students were having a smooth and successful move in day complete with a free CSUMB t-shirt. The blue shirts were being handed out in all different sizes to anyone in reach of the welcome wagon.

The Provost, who has received her bachelors, masters, and doctorate degrees from UC Berkeley, “started her teaching career as a graduate student instructor at the University of California at Berkeley, and worked at Eastern Illinois from 1994 until 2012” according to her bio on the CSUMB website.

Dr. Irwin’s smiling face and free swag made her, as well as the rest of the welcome wagon, a monumental success. Students and parents were smiling, waving, and laughing along with Provost and her fellow staff and faculty as they rode around campus. Making move in day 2018 at CSUMB another great day on campus.
