CSUMB offers support following Gilroy Garlic Festival

On July 28, three people were killed and 17 were injured in a mass shooting that took place at the 41st annual Gilroy Garlic Festival. Being only 45 minutes from California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB), many students and faculty were personally affected by the event.

Students seeking support are encouraged to visit on-campus resources such as the Personal Growth and Counseling Center, Otter Cross Cultural Center, and Office of Inclusive Excellence. These services provide students with resources for counseling, educational programs, support groups and connections to other students like them.
In the event of an emergency on campus, CSUMB has an emergency alert system called OTTER Alerts used to notify members of the community via email or text. Students can sign up to receive notifications at csumb.edu/otteralerts. Updates can also be found across CSUMB’s social media platforms.

To learn more about CSUMB’s specific emergency procedures, students can visit csumb.edu/police/emergency-procedures.
