Join us!!!!

Taste for Student Success is back!  Last year a record 525 alumni and friends of CSUSM raised their glasses while raising support for student success initiatives across campus. We hope you will join us back on campus this year for an afternoon of food and fun at CSUSM’s Taste for Student Success on Saturday, Oct. 19. This open-air festival welcomes 40+ vendors with cuisine, local wines, craft brews and premium spirits. 

This will be a great opportunity to catch up with your faculty and fellow alumni while together, raising support for the next generation of successful Cougars.


We look forward to seeing you!  Cheers!
