President Qayoumi Invites Super Sunday Greeters
- January 14, 2009
The California State University will host Super Sunday IV in the Bay Area on Sunday, February 15, 2009. Super Sunday is a CSU outreach event to the African American church community to provide encouragement and information to students and their families about the importance of preparing for college.
Super Sunday is part of the CSU's Outreach Initiative to Underrepresented Communities than began four years ago. CSU East Bay has developed special relationships with dozens of East Bay churches through the support that our faculty, staff and students have shown for this special activity. I take this opportunity to thank you for your past support and to encourage you to participate again this year.
A special Web site has been established for those of you wishing to participate as greeters on Super Sunday. View the list of churches participating in Super Sunday and indicate which church you would like to serve in as a greeter. The role of CSUEB faculty, staff, and student greeters is to talk to parents, grandparents, and students about college life and how to prepare for college. Our Admissions and Advising staff will be on hand to answer specific questions regarding admissions and financial aid.
We are also pleased to announce two other major outreach events that will take place on the Hayward campus for the winter quarter: The Latino Education Summit, cosponsored with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Saturday, January 24, 2009, and the Third African American Education Summit for Families will be held February 21, 2009. We hope you also plan to attend these events to talk to parents and prospective students.
Thank you for supporting our University in these important outreach efforts to underserved communities. CSUEB is dedicated to fulfilling its regional stewardship mission to all the citizens of our region.
