Chapter News

Tri City ParkOn April 22, current students, faculty, alumni and their families gathered for the Counseling Chapter of the Alumni Association’s Spring Picnic at beautiful Tri-City Park. We had a great turn out with more than 50 attendees plus several doggies. Children enjoyed face painting, a festive piñata and, of course, the playground. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect with clear skies, a pleasant breeze and temperatures in the 70’s. Besides tasty food and good company, the picnic provided a great networking opportunity. Several people made the decision to join the Alumni Association because of its many perks (beyond awesome events like this picnic). Be sure to mark your calendars for the Counseling Chapter’s fall event--it promises to be just as fun!

The Counseling Chapter was officially chartered with the goal of joining CSUF Counseling Alumni together and creating an opportunity to interact and network with fellow alumni in the field.

The chapter leadership strives to provide opportunities to gather their alumni together to achieve this. Their annual events include a Holiday Networking event as well as an End–of–the–year Mixer. The chapter continues their work to find new avenues through which to develop opportunities for training and networking for its members.

The Counseling Chapter is still in development and is continuing to build its membership base as well as its chapter leadership. If interested in becoming involved, please contact Mary Read at
