Visit www.csulb.edu/dreamers for all things that Long Beach State and ASI are doing to support ONE Beach. Remember, DACA renewal applications are due by this Thursday, Oct. 5 .
Message From President Nino
Welcome to the first edition of this year's ASI Student Government newsletter. My team and I are taking additional strides in an effort to communicate more effectively with our campus community by launching this new e-newsletter. Each week there are between five and ten meetings in student government and this message will serve as a resource for important initiatives that your student government is undertaking. Additionally, we will spotlight clubs, organizations and programs that ASI has sponsored and share events my team has put together. 

I f you have any questions or suggestions about things we can include, email me at Joseph.Nino@csulb.edu. Thank you for subscribing and we hope this becomes a valuable resource to you. 

Go Beach!

Over the past few weeks, the Board of Control (BOC) has allocated several grants to student groups and individuals, including over $3,000 being awarded in travel grants for students to attend conferences to present research that is currently being conducted at the Beach. We will use this section of the newsletter to share those stories so that you can see the accomplishments that your peers are making in the academic and programmatic community.

ASI Sponsors BSU Fashion Show
The Board of Control allocated funds to support the Black Student Union (BSU) to host their 4th annual eco-fashion show  in collaboration with Jus Listen TV and residential housing. This year the event will not only be student-led, but will also feature sustainable clothing made from organic cotton to glass chips. The event will give student models, designers and make-up artists the opportunity to collaborate with professionals in the entertainment and modeling industry.
