Do you love rooting for your favorite team and being decked out in spirit gear? Are you looking for a fun way to get plugged in and help cheer on CSUSM’s athletic teams to victory? Then BLU CRU is the group for you! The BLU CRU is a student-founded spirit group that has been on campus for several years. BLU CRU members are best known for attending CSUSM athletic events decked out in Cougar blue and cheering loud and proud for their teams. We are currently searching for five spirited students to increase student attendance at athletic events and lead the BLU CRU. We want all CSUSM students to show their Cougar pride and their “P.A.W.S.” (Positive Attitude and Winning Spirit), and we need your help to make it happen. Apply to be a BLU CRU Captain today!
