Alumni Helping Students


Alumni  and fellow Dolphins make an impact! Alumni Helping Students is your way to give back to CI with a gift that is meaningful to our students. Last year, our alumni raised over $40,000 for student scholarships from more than 500 gifts ranging from $1 to $1,000.

When we say every dollar counts, we mean it! And now you decide where your gift will go. Whether its student scholarships, internships, or the Dolphin Pantry, you can find a cause that will make a difference.

It’s your donation – your choice. You can learn more about each initiative at Make your gift to Alumni Helping Students online at or text “CIALUMNI” to 414-44.

Taskforce Focuses on Temporary Housing

CI has spearheaded an Emergency Taskforce, comprised of students, staff and administrators who are tasked with creating programs to help students access food, temporary housing, and emergency funds. Thus far, the Dolphin Pantry is open in Ojai Hall, and CI has begun an application and review process for students to request emergency funds. 

The last taskforce item to be completed is a plan for temporary housing. Students face difficulties affording rent, finding places to stay between leases, and other unforeseen occurrences. The Emergency Taskforce is looking to the CI community for support in this effort. We are reaching out to our campus community to explore any potential options available, either for temporary housing, such as extra rooms where students may be able to stay when they are in a difficult situation without a place to sleep, or monetary donations that will help bolster our emergency housing fund to provide temporary housing in the campus residence halls or for off-campus accommodations. 

If you are interested in supporting these efforts, through financial donations, or short-term offers of space, please contact Cassandra Silic at 805-437-3340 or

This will significantly reduce the amount of paper waste during production and TreeRing will also plant a tree for every yearbook sold.

Some of the other benefits include the options - for a soft or hard cover, shipping directly to your home, adding two customizable pages which could include personal photos from this past year, notes or messages to look back on for years to come, and you can customize your design.

Ordering is easy – by visiting  and creating an account using the unique passcode for CI: 101475603518586 — then purchase your yearbook.
