“WhyCI” video contest deadline extended

The “WhyCI” video contest submission deadline has been extended to April 21. CI is offering $1,500 scholarships to one current student and one prospective (admitted) student who can best answer the question of why they chose CI in a 15-second video.

To enter the contest, students must submit their video via Instagram no later than Monday, April 21, using the hashtag #whyCI. The video must be 15 seconds or less, explain why the student chose CI, and clearly identify the student in text or audio. It can be a combination of live-action, still photos, and/or animation sequences.

Visit http://www.csuci.edu/whyci for full rules or email whyci@csuci.edu with questions. 

Entries will be judged by CI’s Marketing Advisory Committee on message content, visual creativity, originality, and the number of “likes” received. The top two students will each receive a $1,500 scholarship, usable only at CI. The two grand prize scholarship recipients will be notified in a surprise visit to their classroom.

Eight other finalists will earn $50 dining gift cards provided by University Glen Corp., which can be used at any of CI’s on-campus restaurants or dining facilities.

CI designated a ‘Tree Campus USA’ for second year

For a second consecutive year, CI has earned recognition as a “Tree Campus USA” from the Arbor Day Foundation.  Approximately 200 campuses across the country have achieved the distinction, which salutes colleges and universities for their environmental stewardship, healthy management of campus forests, and engagement of staff and students in conservation goals.  CI achieved the title by meeting Tree Campus USA’s five standards, which include maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance, and student service-learning projects.

The University will receive formal recognition by the Arbor Day Foundation on April 22, as CI celebrates its third annual Earth Extravaganza, a campus and community celebration of Earth Day and Arbor Day.  The event being held from 1 to 4 p.m. at CI’s Central Mall will feature a combination of “green” festivities, speakers, music, demonstrations, information booths, vendors, and service opportunities.

Other planned events include:
