MEDIA ADVISORY

Alumni Invited to “Come Home” for
California State University, Dominguez Hills Gala Reception

CARSON, Calif: – A gala “Alumni Come Home” reception for all alumni will be held on Thursday, Nov. 13, on campus in the Grand Hall of the Loker University Student Union at California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH). Sponsored by the University’s Office of Alumni Relations, the event will offer alumni an opportunity to tour their alma mater and its new buildings and upgraded facilities, meet old friends and faculty and visit the new Home Depot Center, a world-class sports and entertainment complex now located on campus.

For alumni who are interested, tours of the campus and the Home Depot Center will be offered beginning at 3 p.m. and ending at 5 p.m. The reception will begin at 5 p.m. and held in the Grand Hall of the student union. If you would like additional information or to RSVP, please e-mail the Office of Alumni Relations no later than Nov. 6 at http://www.csudh.edu/ComeHome/.

Sheila Butts, director of the Office of Alumni Relations for Cal State Dominguez Hills, is encouraged by the initial response from alumni who have committed to coming home for the reception. “We are receiving feedback from our alumni in states across the country as well as throughout California who say they wouldn’t think of missing this reception,” Butts said. “This will truly be an opportunity of a lifetime for our alumni to reunite with their old classmates and make new friends as we come together to reinvest and become actively involved in the University and our surrounding communities.”

Since the University opened its doors to classes in 1965, thousands of graduates have assumed careers in a wide range of professions that are vital to California’s economic prosperity. Today, for instance, Cal State Dominguez Hills graduates more teachers earning credentials than any other of the 23 California State Universities.
