Want free tuition for spring quarter, while having some fun along the way? Associated Students Incorporated (ASI) provides students the opportunity here at CSUSB.
Thanks to ASI, students can look forward to events such as Mr. & Ms. CSUSB Pageant, CSUSB Snow Day, Movie Night, PC trouble shooting and Music Events. These are a few of the events ASI is developing with CSUSB students in mind to relieve some tension, have some fun and even provide the opportunity for free tuition, according to Chris Martinez the Student Coordinator of Marketing and Promotions.
The Pageant, which is planned to be held in the Coussoulis Arena on March 8, provides the opportunity for two students (male and female) to show their individuality, talent and school spirit.
If they win they will have bragging rights of being Mr. or Ms. CSUSB and the greatest payoff to the pageant is having free tuition for spring quarter.
Even though CSUSB is located in the Inland Empire, where it never snows, ASI has partnered with Rec Sports to bring students the 4th annual CSUSB Snow Day.
Thanks to ASI and REC Sports the CSUSB Snow day which will be held Feb. 14 from 11:00 – 5:00 p.m. 20 tons of snow will be brought to campus to provide students with the opportunity to sled, snowboard, create snowmen and even ice skate here on campus.
ASI staff such as Martinez and Student Coordinator of Programs Daisy Ramos as well as others are constantly developing and promoting new ways to assist students while providing as much fun along the way as possible.
Ramos anticipates a larger attendance this year than the roughly 300 students they had at the Pageant in recent years.
ASI staff members such as Martinez and Ramos are most excited about the upcoming Snow Day event. ASI is expecting a large participation by students for the Snow Day largely because of the time the event will be available for students, the effective quick relief of stress it provides, the food that will be available and just the overall atmosphere the event will produce.
ASI embodies the idea of their motto “For the Students, By the Students.” Even though ASI is constantly working diligently to create fun and exciting events ASI provides many other useful services for students here on campus that staff members urge us not to ignore.
Such services ASI provides are legal consultation services through the legal clinic, graphics and marketing through the Design service, funds for events and programs through the CAB Funding and, of course, discounted amusement park & movie theater tickets at the box office.
Students requesting to receive any further information on upcoming events or would like to use any service ASI provides are urged to visit the department’s official website at asi.csusb.edu or give them a call at (909) 537-5932.
