Annual Report 2012 – 2013

From the Chair

This was a fantastic year for the University Student Union (USU) and USU Board of Directors. It began with a bang with the openings of the Veterans Resource Center and the Pride Center. These resource centers effectively supported their intended communities as well as the CSUN community at large with themed lounges and events that provided a supportive and entertaining environment for Matadors to interact and express their individuality.

Another highlight was the new expanded Computer Lab that was heavily utilized this year. A popular feature is its advanced PrintAnywhere service, which gives CSUN students the convenience of free wireless printing through the Web.

A continuing point of pride for the USU was the continued success of the Student Recreation Center (SRC), which won 10 design and sustainability awards, including the 2013 AIA Education Facility Design Award. Its new turf field, which opened in the spring, is an excellent addition to the SRC and Union. Students frequently used these spaces for personal recreation and intramural sports.

What an incredible year! It was my pleasure to serve the CSUN community.
