  • Providing quality nutrition to people who struggle to get it has always been an important part of alum Jim Morris' life. When he saw the Hungry Wildcat Food Pantry shared that passion, he couldn't help but make an impact.

    “I knew classmates where food was sometimes a little questionable. They’d come to our house more than once for dinner. I know there were people that would sometimes, depending on circumstances, skip meals. That hasn’t improved.”

  • In 1969, it was one small step for man, and one giant leap for humankind. In 2019, we remain fascinated by the human and technological achievement of placing people on the moon—as well as the prospect of future missions to Mars.

    This month, the Gateway Science Museum, California State University, Chico will celebrate this remarkable milestone with a temporary exhibit titled, “Before and Beyond the Moon: The 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing” and envision a future landing on Mars.

    The exhibit will run from June 12 through December 15.

  • "The most important thing that Chico State has given me is the opportunity to fine-tune my skills so I can put the effort toward my students who deserve my energy and attention.

    The most important thing for them is to not be afraid to think, and not be afraid to bring a lot of processes and points of view to their thinking. We can't tell them how to think, but we can give them the tools and the will to think independently. That's the way we can transform tomorrow—not just at the University, but in our society—by having everyone coming together independently and honestly."

    John Roussell, professor, Media Arts, Design and Technology

  • Commencement update:

    Based on NOAA NWS Weather Prediction Center forecasts for unsafe weather Saturday evening, the 7 p.m. ceremony for Colleges of Business and HFA will now start at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, May 18. Stadium gates open at 10:45 a.m. Grads should assemble at 10:30 a.m.

    Graduates should report to Intramural Fields 6 & 7 at 10:30 a.m. to check in. Gates will open for guests at 10:45 a.m. Guests should use the same tickets issued for the original 7 p.m. ceremony. The weather in Chico is cool and wet. Please dress appropriately.

    For guests who do not wish to sit in the open-air stadium, a simulcast of the ceremony is available in Harlan Adams Theatre, in Performing Arts Center, Room 144, on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Saturday's Latinx Celebrations in Laxson Auditorium will begin later at 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. The Black Grad Celebration is still at 2 p.m.

    We know this will disrupt some graduates and guests, and we sincerely apologize. This is the best opportunity for a dry, complete ceremony instead of an abridged or canceled event due to unsafe weather. We appreciate your understanding and we look forward to celebrating with you.

    All other ceremonies will begin as scheduled. College of CME grads should stay tuned for updates, if necessary, regarding Sunday's ceremony.
