To help students succeed in progressing toward achieving their degrees, Cal State L.A. offers many campus services and amenities at no extra cost to students. In fact, the University has recently launched a “Here 4 You” campaign to build student awareness of resources on campus and to help foster a culture of success at Cal State L.A. for all its students.

To learn more, look for the “Here 4 You” logo on the CSULA News Facebook page for posts that pertain specifically to students, and keep an eye out for all the “freebies” on campus.
