Pizza with the Presidents, featuring University President Michael J. Ortiz and ASI President Ismael Souley, took place on Thursday, April 14 in University Quad. The event turnout was a success with students that filled up the surrounding tables to eat their free pizza and students who parked themselves under a shady tree to hear their Presidents answer their questions.
But in effort to help gain the support of students at Cal Poly Pomona, Shelly Bruce, ASI secretary of external affairs, was also in attendance at Pizza with the Presidents promoting the “Made in the CSU” campaign.
The California State Student Association’s (CSSA) “Made in the CSU” campaign provides information about the value of the CSU which drives their mission to “maintain and enhance access to an affordable, quality higher education for the people of California, to the California State University.”
Bruce, who was elected earlier this year by CSSA as the official Lobby Corps Officer for all 23 of the California State Universities, was tabling at Pizza with the Presidents by providing passersby with letters to local legislators asking for their support with issues arising in the CSU.
