Letter From Our Executive Director

Welcome back to the Seufferlein Sales Program and the fall of 2021!

Since its launch in 2008, the Seufferlein Sales Program (SSP) delivered its best performance on record during the 2020/2021 academic school year. SSP students competed in 6 state/national sales competitions and were awarded three 1st place, one 2nd place and one 3rd place finish's totaling $17,750 of student prize money. Corporate sponsorship and SSP student enrollment were at an all-time high's ending the academic year with 29 actively engaged partners and 228 SSP students respectively. Our students who graduated with a Professional Sales Certificate continued to receive multiple job offers and landed in positions locally and across the country. 

Additionally, the CSUC Seufferlein Sales Program extended its leadership responsibilities within the west coast hosting the first ever CSU Sales Competition in the fall of 2020 and the Western States Sales Competition in the spring of 2021. We are in the process of upgrading our fall workshop schedule and will soon be posting our "Calendar of Events" so stay tuned. We all know we have been living through exceptional times and wanted to take a moment to welcome you back for an exciting fall semester.
On  Wednesday, September 15th the Seufferlein faculty and staff will be hosting a back to school event for all students enrolled or who are interested in enrolling in our program. You will have the opportunity to meet our Board, many of our corporate sponsors and of course our faculty and staff; come hungry because we are going to cater the event a to celebrate being together again. 

The Seufferlein Sales Center which is located in Glenn 206 will be open this fall Monday's to Thursday's from 8AM-3PM so stop by. There will always be snacks and water ready for you anytime so come and meet the facility and say hello to the best student staff on campus!!! We are thrilled to be seeing you all face to face again.

Go Wildcats!
