Alumni & Friends

CSUC department of Nutrition and food sciences Circle of Friends

What is the "Circle of Friends?"

A network of Alumni, Current Students, Faculty, Staff, and Friends who are committed to providing on-going private support to preserve the Department’s dedication and commitment to excellence. 

With shrinking state budgets for higher education, private funding is critical to ensure the highest quality education and training for our students.

Funds may be used to support student scholarships; graduate research; registration fees so students may attend professional meetings such as the California Dietetic Association Annual Meeting; laptop computers for students use; small equipment purchases for our laboratory courses; and additional resources for our classes.
