As the fall semester is set in motion, your student leaders continue to work hard on your behalf. I am extremely proud of the ongoing collaboration between students, faculty, staff and administration as we strive to serve all students. My team and I are determined to ensure that students are always involved in key processes and decisions that would affect the university as a whole. 

As we strive to uphold the values of shared governance that have persisted throughout the extensive history of student government at Long Beach State, we would be thrilled to have you on-board as well. To learn more about how you can join student government and an advocate for your fellow students, please visit and apply through our BeachSync portal.

I am already remarkably impressed by the work being done by all divisions of student government. I am looking forward to sharing all of the great work we are doing through this weekly newsletter and I look forward to having you be involved in our efforts and events. Some things to look forward to are ways to get civically engaged, advocate for your fellow students, take advantage of resources, and attend informational and enjoyable events. I am looking forward to a great year, stay tuned!
