The Student Affairs Expo Nov. 15 provided students with an overview of the services and programs offered by over 25 departments at Cal State Dominguez Hills.
Admissions and Records, the Rose Black Resource Center, the Career Center, Financial Aid, Male Success Alliance, Veteran Resource Center, University Outreach and School Relations were among the participating departments.
“The Student Affairs Expo helps students who are not aware of services available to them on campus,” said Austin Seang, a junior. “I was not aware that we had so many different services here at CSUDH.”
The Associated Students Inc. also participated. ASI offers unlimited discount cards to students that can be used at different restaurants and stores located near campus. ASI is looking to add more vendors to the discount cards in the near future.
“ASI hosts a raffle every semester where students who participate in 10 or more ASI events throughout the semester can enter a raffle to win a $100 gift card,” said Stephen Janes, an ASI representative.
ASI hosts countless events, including fitness classes, Spring Fling and Toro Tuesday. Students can stop by the ASI office in the Loker Student Union or call (310) 243-3686 for more information on upcoming events and opportunities.
