Dear Students,

Welcome to the 2007/2008 academic year at California State University Channel Islands.

You have chosen to attend the 23rd campus of the CSU at an exciting time, as this year we celebrate our fifth anniversary.

The past five years have been marked by steady growth in our dynamic academic programs as well as a continual building out of the campus itself, as we strive to keep up with the academic and life needs of our increasing student population.

Yes, much has been accomplished over a relatively short time in the life of our University. This ambitious pace of progress and growth will be ongoing. Laying the groundwork for the future of Cal State Channel Islands is still in full swing. I encourage you to share your thoughts and desires with us continually to assure that we are fulfilling your highest expectations for a successful college experience.

Sincerely yours,

Richard R. Rush
