Blue Crue is all about having fun, getting involved, and meeting new people. Bonus! Every time you participate in a Blue Crue event you earn will swag incentives.

Do the Common Read

The annual tradition of the Common Read Experience is an opportunity for all first-year students to read the same book over the summer before they start classes at CSUMB. Many faculty, staff and student leaders who interact with the incoming first-year students also read the book.

Not only are the events fun, but you'll learn a lot about the school, make new friends and help you have a successful school year.
