Students and Parents Invited to Attend
Super Saturday College Fair on Aug. 21
Parents and K-12 students throughout Southern California are invited to the California State University's Super Saturday College Fair. Participants will attend workshops on college financial aid, how to prepare for college and steps for entry into the California State University system.
The Super Saturday College Fair will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21 at CSU Dominguez Hills, located at 1000 E. Victoria Street in Carson. Free parking will be available in Lot 3.
Families will meet with individual CSU campus representatives to learn about student life in different California regions, requirements and majors specific to each CSU campus.
CSU Super Saturday is part of the CSU African American Initiative, a partnership with local churches and community organizations across California to prepare middle school and high school students to successfully enter and graduate from college.
The development of the Super Saturday College Fair follows the success experienced through CSU Super Sunday, an event held annually during African American History Month. The Sunday outreach event brings CSU presidents, trustees and the CSU chancellor to predominantly African American churches throughout California to share information about preparing for college and applying for admission to any of the CSU's 23 campuses.
“The benefit of the Super Saturday College Fair is that parents and students visit a university campus and together learn how to manage the steps of getting to college,” said Dr. Barbara Young, a consultant to the CSU African American Initiative.
Families are encouraged to register early for the Super Saturday College Fair by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions may be addressed to the same e-mail address or by calling Rosanna Hughes at (562) 951-4818.
