On Wednesday, January 31, Year One will host CSM’s first Bulldog Bash, a recruiting event welcoming high school seniors from across the district to preview CSM, our programs, and resources. The Bulldog Bash will take place from 9 am to 12:30 pm in the Bayview Dining Room at College Center, Building 10. The half-day event is expected to attract approximately 200 high school seniors.

The Bulldog Bash kicks off with a welcome from College President Mike Claire and a student panel. Students will then attend breakout sessions hosted by Year One. The day concludes with a tabling fair and lunch.

The Bulldog Bash brings together a variety of support services and campus resources, such as Financial Aid, Student Life, Transfer Services, Priority Enrollment Program (PEP), Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS), the Disability Resources Center (DRC), MeTAS, Multicultural & Dream Center, learning communities, College Outreach, and Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs.

College of San Mateo’s first-year experience program, Year One, seeks to ease the transition from high school to college by providing students with a simple transition path paired with a supportive community. Year One assists students through three critical points of transition: during the college enrollment period, summertime, and through their first-year at College of San Mateo.

If you or your office is interested in participating in the tabling fair, please contact Year One Coordinator Allie Fasth at fastha@smccd.edu no later than Friday, January 19.
