Latinos on the westcoast, illegal or legal, are habitual dropouts, never will change .. AF's are moving forward, no worry about Latinos crowding colleges .. funny, the CSULB hucksters are not making rounds in the traditional Cali Latino Barrios
I think they're just going by some study that must say that blacks who attend any kind of college curriculum are less likely to commit a felony or have unwanted children. Not so much that they'll actually finish their term.
I don't know if that's what what colleges were intended for.
Overall, it just goes to show that importing cheap labor, whether the blacks or hispanics, winds up costing a society for hundreds of years afterwards. Slavery and "cheap labor" are never cheap in the host country in the long run.

This is just a thught, but maybe it will qualify CSULB for more government money ...!!!
No doubt, a self serving publcity stunt and transparent hustle!
Find me a black person in Long Beach who is interested in education (many are) who does not already know about CSULB, same with those all over our State. Wow, one can only imagine the money being wasted with staff planing all of this, self serving tons of glowing memos up and down the bureacratic chain, and lackeys kissing butt .. who is the big boss over there, looking for bragging rights .. it is also, somewhat insulting to the AF community, the mere inference that they do not already know about CSU, student loans, grants, scholarships, equal opportunities

Not so much. The dropout level for illegals in high school keeps that scenario at bay for the most part. Most drop out by 11th grade.
I respectfully disagree with you on this one, Prof. The Dream Act states as long as the illegal is going to at least one class he/she AND his/her family (their idea of family is even 30th cousins three times removed) is safe from deportation. So believe me when I say the Cal State System will be swamped. The Cal State System and the JCs have remedial classes.

I guess this beats reaching out to those who have done the hard work to achieve academic success. Better to be politically correct than to be a stellar institution of higher learning. Very "Progressive".
Right on! I had to work hard in junior college (I had good grades) in order to transfer and I was very lucky to get accepted and graduated later on. And now what CSULB is doing is wrong, the school should accept the students who are the best qualified, have transcripts from junior colleges, and have great grades and test scores in H.S. and are serious about school rather than playing the race card.
CSULB should reach out to everyone, rather than play the race card.
