California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) is celebrating its 25th anniversary throughout the year of 2015.
Since its founding, CSUSM has distinguished itself as a forward-focused institution, dedicated to preparing future leaders, building great communities and solving critical issues.
From humble beginnings as a chicken ranch to becoming a bold, innovative university with a forward focus, CSUSM turns 25 this year. Although founded in 1989 when the governor signed Senate Bill 365 declaring the former SDSU satellite campus as a new state university, CSUSM marks its anniversary by its first day of classes, which were held in the fall of 1990.
Throughout its anniversary year, CSUSM will host signature events and programs to celebrate with students, faculty, staff, friends and the wider community.
