Hello, Long Beach State! Another newsletter means another successful week for our student body.

One of the greatest accomplishments of our students this week was the charitable efforts of our student organizations and athletics as they graciously volunteered to prepare over 25,000 meals for food-insecure children in Long Beach. Volunteers for the food-drive, which took place last Saturday at St. Anthony HS, earned over 10,000 meals for the ASI Beach Pantry through their tireless work. We thank them for their immeasurable kindness and hope they will serve as an example for all students at Long Beach State.

As fall gets underway the days might be getting shorter, but the future of our university looks brighter than ever. I hope you all have a fantastic rest of your week!
