As an alumnus or alumna, you may think that when you finish capstone, throw on your cap and gown, and your diploma has your name written on it, that’s it. That’s the end of 8 a.m’s, the end of late night study sessions or early bird coffee brews, and the end of your CSUMB learning experience. Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s not the end of the road. Once you transition from a student to an alumnus or alumna, you don’t get kicked out of the CSUMB community, you are automatically welcomed into the Alumni Association – for free!
For some of you, you might already have an understanding of what this entails, but for those of you that don’t, I am here to tell you about the endless array of learning opportunities that still precede you. As a member of the Alumni Association, you are provided with benefits left and right, to include a monthly e-newsletter, a copy of the CSUMB magazine, library access, discounted insurance, hotel and travel savings, and otter gear.
Some of the greatest benefits included in the Alumni Association membership are the weekly webinars and online events. They offer tools and resources to provide insight and thought-provoking ideas. They range from career, life stage, and lifelong learning topics. For example, this March you may find there are many interesting webinars to attend that cover topics like nourishing your potential growth, strategies to apply towards your career, leadership lessons, and building a sellable business. All webinars are programmed by best-selling authors and career experts.
Each month is filled with a variety of topics that are beneficial to all alumni, but are not limited to only alumni. Individuals, parents, faculty, friends, and even students are able to view them. These webinars are easily-accessible to you and can be viewed from the comfort of your own home! You can take advantage of these wonderful events at https://alumlc.org/csumb.
Learning is a valuable gift that should not be taken away after you leave CSUMB, so deep dive into these webinars and find useful information to apply to your pathway to success.
