For the CCC, the Summer is usually a time dedicated to the planning, organizing and strategizing of our many events for Fall Quarter at CSULA. However in addition to planning, this Summer we are hosting events! If you’re taking classes this Summer or just plain miss us, please stop by! Heres a look at our Summer Calendar.
