Dean's Letter to Students, April 2024

Dear Nazarian College Students:

 Welcome back! I hope you had a great break and are energized and prepared to tackle the remainder of the semester head-on.

 As you dive back into your academic studies, I want to take a moment to emphasize the importance of not only focusing on your studies but also prioritizing your well-being and engagement in campus activities.

While your studies are important, it’s also vital for you to set aside some time to relax and practice self-care between your study sessions. This can be as simple as taking a walk outside or connecting with friends and family.

 In line with this, I would like to congratulate those of you who actively participated in events earlier this year, including Industry Night, Meet the Firms and our Distinguished Speaker Series event featuring Sixth Street’s Marty Chavez.

Attending campus events fosters a sense of community and offers diverse perspectives and experiences outside ofthe classroom. 

I encourage every one of you to continue this spirit of involvement this semester. One such event that I'd like to highlight is our popular Bull Ring competition, which takes place from 3-5 p.m., April 24, at the University Student Union, Grand Salon. Register today to support your peers and learn from the judges who will provide feedback to the five finalist student teams.

I also want to introduce you to a new program called “Roadmap to Exporting.” We live in LA, which has one of the largest ports in the world together with the Long Beach Port. These two ports provide more than 40 percent of the total trade done by the U.S. in imports and exports.

If you are interested in the business of exporting goods or services, this is a program for you. Students who complete the program receive a certificate from the Department of Commerce and a 1-unit credit from CSUN through Tseng College. Students can sign up for the program, which runs every Saturday in April, at this link: XBUS918 Registration Link. I hope to see you there!

And don’t forget to take advantage of free, unlimited access to more than 300 certificate courses, provided to all Nazarian College students as part of the CSUN Nazarian Career Academy. Learn new skills and advance your career by earning a professional certificate on Coursera, a global online learning platform. Visit our website for more information.

Finally, I want to remind you to check out the monitor located by the elevators in the Bookstein Hall lobby. Throughout the year, you will find information about faculty hours, tutoring opportunities, events on campus, and scholarship opportunities, among many other college events and activities.

So, as you navigate the semester's demands, remember to strike a balance. Make the most of your time here by excelling academically while also embracing Nazarian campus life.
