As the spring semester once again comes to an end, the California State University prepares to honor more than 100,000​ graduates across its 23 campuses, recognizing their academic achievements, extracurricular accomplishments, service work and perseverance.

“This celebration marks a new beginning for you—a time to commence a new life, filled with opportunities and prospects made possible by your degree from the California State University,​” Interim CSU Chancellor Jolene Koester says. “I ask that—in the Cal State spirit—you use the knowledge, skills and personal qualities you have developed to work for justice, seek opportunities to foster equity and always uplift and empower ​others.”​
