Cal State Fullerton students and alumni will visit Catalina Island on Aug. 6 for a day trip sponsored by the CSUF Accounting and Business Finance Alumni chapters.

Just 30 miles offshore from Orange County, Catalina Island offers dining, water sports, beaches and wildlife observation in an island setting that feels worlds away from Southern California traffic.

Thanks to the Student Success Initiative, the Cal State Fullerton community will spend the day connecting with alumni as they explore the island with their fellow Titans on Saturday, Aug. 6. This day trip will depart from Newport Beach at 8:30 a.m. There are a total of 70 tickets, including a limited number of free tickets for current students and tickets for alumni and others in our university community. Registration is $40 for alumni association members and $50 for others, such as parents, faculty and staff. See all the details on the trip here.

The group will spend the day in Avalon, the largest city on the island, kayaking, sightseeing and networking, as well as enjoying the 75-minute boat ride on The Catalina Flyer, a 500-passenger catamaran ferry. Lunch will not be provided, but there are plenty of local dining options worth checking out. Seafood, Italian, Asian, bakeries and coffee spots are among the restaurants popular with visitors.

Sign up today for this day of fun in the sun. Catalina travel tips are available online.
