CSUSM President visits Senior Experience Trade Show

President visiting Senior Experience Trade Show

CSUSM strives to be a national model of integrated engaged community learning,” said CSUSM President Ellen J. Neufeldt.

President Neufeldt visited the College of Business Administration’s Senior Experience Trade Show last week and said: "Since arriving at CSUSM, I've been so impressed with the ‘learn by doing’ approach for which this campus is known. The Senior Experience Trade Show was an impressive example of our focus on offering students hands-on learning experiences that help transform the students into problem-solvers and well-balanced leaders. I was so impressed with the projects our students were involved in, and I can't thank our sponsors enough for partnering with us." 

 She continued: "Senior Experience is an example of how CSUSM strives to be a national model of integrated engaged community learning – together we are changing the economic trajectory of individual students as well as the economic trajectory of our region." 

The Senior Experience Trade Show, which is a presentation of graduating business students' final projects, was held in the Sony Electronics’ North American Headquarters last week. More than 450 students, faculty members and business community attended this high-ranking event.
