CSU Chancellor White Impressed By Visit to CSU Stanislaus

California State University Chancellor Timothy White visited CSU Stanislaus on Thursday, meeting with students, faculty and staff as part of his tour of the 23-campus CSU system. During his visit, the chancellor praised the campus’ commitment to student success and its efforts to build strong relationships with the community.

While touring campus in the morning, White got some tips from music students on how to conduct an orchestra, took a few swings against the baseball team’s new virtual pitching machine, and visited with the women’s soccer team, which recently won its second conference championship in three years. He also sat down for impromptu talks with students in the university’s Writing Center and other spots on campus, and he said he came away from those conversations with a sense that the university truly understands the needs of its students.
