A cozy evening by the fire and an afternoon cooling off at the pool… Students living in CSUN’s housing complex kicked off the fall semester with some fun activities, including the “Mata-Splash” event.  More than 100 students cooled off at the pool party on Aug. 30.  Around 400 campus housing residents came to the “Bonfire Bash” on Aug. 31, where everyone enjoyed a dinner of grilled hot dogs and making s’mores at the fire pit.

Welcome Week activities in campus housing started with a Block Party on Aug. 27, where residents could learn more about clubs and organizations. Organizers say these events are held to introduce students to life in campus housing and to meet their neighbors. Check out the photos from these fun events!
