This was one of our field trips that our 6th graders went to and enjoyed every moment of it. Students were able to get a tour of the campus and really see the way students live. Students got a special tour of the new dorms and really envisioned themselves as college students living on campus. Thank you CSUDH for hosting our 6th graders.
