Excursions & Cultural Events

Each semester, the CSUMB International Programs office organizes cultural events and excursions for students to have a chance to explore California more easily and less expensively than planning a trip on your own. This is a great way to meet new people, see the sights on your bucket list, and enjoy an adventure with minimal planning!

To sign up, select the event you are interested in and hit the green "sign up" button. This will take you to an event page where you can provide payment online.

Events can fill up quickly, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible to make sure you don't miss out!
