CSUN opened its doors to the community for the campus’ first-ever Family Education Day, on Saturday, Oct. 26, welcoming local youth and families for fun activities and educational resources.
Fun crafts such as pumpkin painting, slime and button making kept children entertained while parents stocked up on free school supplies and books. A reading garden encouraged kids to use their imagination with storytelling, coloring and free superhero masks and dress-up items. Classrooms were nearly full as educational workshops in English and Spanish highlighted topics such as college preparation, financial aid and services available to undocumented students.
The day also featured a college and resource fair, which offered families a glimpse into CSUN and other local institutions, as well as community groups. Interactive booths also demonstrated disciplines and majors such as computer science and physical therapy with fun, inviting activities.
University officials designed the event to inform the community about educational opportunities and resources to help children achieve their education and career goals.
