Culmination Celebration

On Friday, May 11, the California State University, Long Beach BUILD program hosted its second annual Commencement Ceremony. The ceremony honored CSULB BUILD’s second cohort of upper division students who officially completed the program. The group was comprised of 37 Scholars (students who completed two years of the program) and three Fellows (senior students who have one year left before graduation from CSULB). Of the 40 students who were honored at the event, 30 graduated from CSULB in May with a bachelor’s degree. Seventeen of those 30 graduates will be attending graduate school this fall, five of whom will be attending the University of California, Irvine, one of our CSULB BUILD’s Research 1 (R1) partner institutions. Eight students will be returning to BUILD as third-year Scholars.
