A waste of time, which is why the numbers get manipulated. This is about as useful as sending agents into the Cambodian community to get them to sign up for college basketball: putting undue pressure on the majority to benefit a relative few.

Be prepared to lower your admission standards.Blacks can't compete with whites if the field is level academically.

Cal State is already overcrowded and is turning away thousands of students of all races, why would you "encourage" anyone to apply?

WTF? This is an outright racist move period ...

What if:

CSULB reaches out to beach communities to recruit European students.

I think the NAACP would be all over it !!!

Attention, church-going african americans. When a fourth tier state school tries to recruit you, don't be so quick to say yes. Hold out for the Ivy League schools like Columbia and Harvard, they need you just as bad. Worked for me.

Even marginally qualified AF's do not want to attend a 4th tiered Cal-State Long Beach, which could prove a real negative on the resume. Just what type of sales pitches are going down in those Black churches, by those Cal-State used car salesmen .. hope they show some respect and at least make a nice donation to the church.

That school is overcrowded as with most cal state schools on southern cal. My son is attending east bay. They have an awesome business and nursing program.

Hey, if a young Brotha in Long Beach and elsewhere in our state does not already know about the CSULB system, he does not deserve to go to college .. All common knowledge, and the logical step from HS or Community College, for average or broke students. The next wave is mainly for our returning Veterans (many African Americans included) and they better make room for them.
Now if CSULB does not have room, why are they playing this game, particulalry if it's only for a few athletes and to bolster thier PR. Something about this visit to 100 black churches sounds like a publicity stunt.

@Professor

A good sales pitch to the african american males would be that CSULB has thousands of hot girls, black, asian, latina, white, etc. A sexual smorgasbörd, as it were. Might not be too smart to say this in front of the pastor, though.

Ever meet a Brotha who already does not know this? Just tell them that White Girls are there and ready for them, they innately know what to do and are damn good at it .. FYI - Asian girls definately not interested, most Mexicans not interested, nor all Sistas interested .. LOL .. are you aware of the other bigtime girl sexuality going strong at CSULB, clue is that they look like Chaz Bono, yep CSULB is their Mecca

Just wait for the Dream Act to kick in in 2013. All those illegals will flood the colleges like flies on fresh, steaming cow dung.

The only reason there are "many" african american veterans is because President Bush, when faced with a slowing number of volunteers, lowered the IQ requirements for applicants.
Blacks were done a favor for the opportunity to find employment. It doesn't follow that we also give them entry into a college system that will confound the majority of them.

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.

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 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".
