Navigating this Site

Thank you for visiting us! We want your visit to our website to be enjoyable and informative. Here are some helpful hints that might help you navigate this site. Please use our home page as a starting reference.


The gray bar on the home page can be clicked to obtain a view of another campus. There are 23 campuses in the California State University system.
Click anywhere in our address on the bottom of the home page to obtain directions to the CSU Office of the Chancellor.
Information has been arranged by groups: Students, Faculty & Staff, Teaching & Learning, Administration, Alumni, Parents & Donors, Business, Community & Government, Public Affairs, Board of Trustees, and Chancellor. These groups appear on the left side of the page. As your mouse moves over one of these groups, a gray flyout menu lists several selections within that group. Clicking on the orange group description will take you to the main page of that group, while clicking on any of the selections in the gray flyout menu will take you directly to that selection. You'll notice that the main page of a group features the same selections in the left navigation area as those that appear in the flyout.
Information categories of a more general nature appear on the right side of the page. These include Campuses, Explore the System, Issues & Ideas, Locate & Find, Career Opportunities, Guest Feedback, and a Google™ Search operation (additional search facilities are located at our expanded search page). Additional links include contacting the webmaster (lower left) and viewing our copyright notice (lower right).
