Food trucks will be on hand to serve up some of your favorites cuisines (available for purchase) from Sweet Treats, The InSlider and Flippin’ Pizza.

At CougarFest, be sure to stop by the Senior Class Gift Campaign booth and join your classmates in signing the Thank CSUSM Banner or writing a personal thank you card to a faculty or staff member that has made your experience at CSUSM memorable or meaningful.
