The National Safety Council’s Annual Safety Congress always draws a huge crowd of Columbia Southern students and alumni, and last fall’s event was no exception.
While exhibiting in beautiful San Diego, California, in September 2019, the community and alumni relations department partnered with the corporate outreach department to host one of the largest out-of-town events in CSU history. Students, alumni, guests, and CSU President Ken Styron, attended a San Diego Padres baseball game hosted at the Jalisco Star Landing Pavilion in Petco Park. Students and alumni were able to connect with each other and mingle with members of the National Safety Council. Everyone enjoyed watching the Padres bring home the win in extra innings while munching on hot dogs, peanuts and Cracker Jack.
While the COVID-19 pandemic put a damper on our travel plans in 2020, we are excited to get back out there and host more events like this in 2021.
