Northridge- The University Student Union (USU) invites all students, faculty and staff to experience Carnaval – Virtual, our celebration of the world’s diversity and CSUN’s dynamic multicultural community.

With live performances, dance tutorials and tasty international food recommendations, you don’t want to miss this unique opportunity to celebrate the beauty and richness that each culture brings to our planet, the city of Los Angeles and the CSUN campus. 

“The University Student Union is more than excited to bring back one of our most popular events in a special virtual celebration,” said Aristides Garcia, USU Students Programs Assistant. “Our goal for this year’s festive and inclusive Carnaval is to recognize the culture and beauty of the many walks of life throughout our Matador community.”
