Campus Connections

Arts for Life’s Campus Connections program links faculty and CSULB students with artists performing on our stage, augmenting curriculum and placing the arts at the center of academic life. Through master classes, students benefit from first-hand exposure to artists at the peak of their craft, enriching their CSULB education and their understanding of the arts.
