FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Community Invited to A Day at Dominguez
Local students and families encouraged to attend and learn about
the programs at California State University, Dominguez Hills

(Carson, CA) California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) will host “A Day at Dominguez” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. The open house event is designed to introduce the community to the academic and student life programs offered at this Southern California campus.

An event organized each semester, A Day at Dominguez welcomes thousands of middle and high school students, community college transfer and adult re-entry students, and prospective graduate students, as well as parents and local school counselors to the university. While here, they have the opportunity to talk to faculty, staff and current CSUDH students during the day’s academic fair, tour the campus and on-campus housing facilities, and attend workshops further highlighting the academic programs, financial aid opportunities, and student life activities offered at CSUDH. Informational sessions for parents also are offered and will be provided in both English and Spanish.

A key component of A Day at Dominguez is on-site admissions. Admissions and records staff will be available to meet with prospective students and discuss their admissions eligibility, and if eligible, they can be admitted to CSUDH right then. If a student cannot be admitted, staff will advise him or her on a course of action. Students wanting to take advantage of on-site admissions must first apply online at www.csumentor.edu, bring official transcripts and test scores, and a check or money order for $55.

Although anyone on campus that day can attend A Day at Dominguez, registration is encouraged and lunch will be provided for only those who register. To sign up online, go to www.csudh.edu/outreach/dayatdominguez.html. Then on Saturday, Nov. 17, arrive at the Torodome, the CSUDH gymnasium, beginning at 9 a.m. to check in. The opening session will take place in the gymnasium from 10 to 10:45 a.m.

The rest of the day’s events will occur from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. throughout the campus, including the academic fair in the ballroom of the Loker Student Union, and the Student Walkway — featuring entertainment and student life organizations — outside the student union in the Palm Courtyard.
