TAKE Program and Cast

If you are interested in applying for TAKE Cast, applications are typically available through this website in October.  Please check back with us at that time, or call/visit the department for more information. 

In its 35th year of production, TAKE is a performance that may include skits, spoken word, and/or visual imagery surrounding issues prevalent to CSUN students. Up to 10 diverse students will showcase their performance at New Student Orientation (NSO) to discuss topics such as, but are not limited to, relationships, physical/mental health, prejudice, and overall student transitions. 

In supporting the overall missions and goals set forth by our institution, our division, our department and the NSO program, the TAKE performance promotes university resources and services through real-life situations and scenarios as experienced by our cast members

Annually assessed by our own campus, the nationally recognized TAKE program is an innovative and well-positioned platform where new students learn about supportive structures at CSUN to help ensure their success in college.
