In partnership with KCBA Fox 35, the university is producing a weekly television program, “Campus to Community.” It’s part of CSUMB’s commitment to serving as a catalyst for positive change – through education, outreach and public service.
At CSU Monterey Bay, all students must complete a capstone project in their final year, publicly presenting and defending the project or portfolio of work that demonstrates what they have learned. They do this each fall and spring at the Capstone Festival, which is organized by academic departments.
Cal State Monterey Bay President Eduardo Ochoa joined President Obama, the First Lady, Vice President Biden and hundreds of college presidents and other higher education leaders in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 4, to announce new actions to help more students prepare for and graduate from college.
CSU Monterey Bay saw a 5.3 percent increase in freshmen applications this year over last year, with approximately 15,391 first-time freshmen applying for admission next fall.
The university’s total number of applicants is 12 percent higher than two years ago when 13,753 applied, said Dr. Ronnie Higgs, the university’s vice president of student affairs and enrollment services
CSUMB also had 3,713 upper-division transfers apply, an increase of 1 percent.
