We hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving weekend! We sure did . We will be having our 8th General Meeting on December 5, 2013 in room 304 at 7PM.
Since it’s almost Christmas time, we will be hosting a White Elephant and Cookies & Milk Slumber Party at our 8th General Meeting. What is White Elephant? It’s where we all buy gifts but instead of giving it to a specific person we put the presents on a table and allow our members to choose gifts at random. The twist is that the gift can be stolen from another member but if the gift is stolen three times, people aren’t allowed to steal it anymore. It’s pretty entertaining and you can get great gifts so we hope to see you guys there! If you would like to participate, please buy a gift to share. The minimum you can spend is $5! For the cookies & milk party, please feel free to bring your blanket, PJ’s, and/or cookies & milk! Click here for the Facebook event.

It’s such a great event and it’s good to party knowing that finals are over! We are proud to present you guys with “Young & Beautiful”! We will be having it at La Lune Imperial. The date that we are doing this is on December 20th so mark your calenders!

Our History/Mission Statement:
During the 1960’s, Cal State Long Beach hosted more than 1,000 Cambodian exchange students who participated in a USAID program to learn industrial skills. Among them was San Ramjek who came to CSU Long Beach as a student in 1962. According to Ramjek, the first Cambodian Student Association (CSA), now known as Cambodian Student Society (CSS), was organized at Long Beach State in 1959. He was CSA president in 1962. A number of these former exchange students formed the Cambodian Association of Southern California (CASC) in response to the demands of the first wave of refugees fleeing the Khmer Rouge atrocities.
The Cambodian Student Society (CSS) of California State University of Long Beach (CSULB) was originally established in 1984 by a group of Cambodian students. The formation of the organization has two main purposes:
1. To share the Cambodian culture and customs among the Associated Student body and to also promote academic goals, and achievements among fellow Cambodians.
2. To provide the students opportunities for association and interaction with the faculty, and administration of CSULB and members of the community.
Within its history, CSS has been very successful in providing services to fellow students and the community as a whole. Every year, we at CSS want to improve the organization to better serve the Cambodian community by recruiting more participants and outreaching closer to the community through social, cultural, and educational goals. CSS would like to encourage interested students, staff and faculty at CSULB to be involved with the organization as members. The organization if free to choose and accept new members without regard to sex, race, religion, national origin, disability, or sexual preference. Please join us and support CSS.
From all of us at CSS, we will continue to look forward in providing opportunities for Cambodian students and to serve our community. Thank you.
