CSUN Hosts Feria de Educación Celebration

On Oct. 15, CSUN will host the Feria de Educación, a daylong celebration of the power of education filled with Spanish- and English-language workshops and other activities designed to help parents get the most out of their children’s educational experience, including information about financial aid and to enlighten first-generation college students about higher education. The Feria is a yearly event organized by the CSU and Univision, hosted for the first time by CSUN. This FREE event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at locations across the campus, and the families of prospective college students are encouraged to attend.
