CSU Grad Slam
San José State University hosted the inaugural CSU Grad Slam in 2021. Each year, the CSU Grad Slam will be hosted by different campuses across the state. This year on May 6th, CSU Bakersfield has the honor to host this competition! Each campus will send the top winners from their local competitions to the CSU competition, where they will present their work live (virtually) for a chance to win one of three possible prizes. With 19 campuses represented from the CSU system, it will be an exciting event! Make sure to check back on April 15 to meet the finalists attending on behalf of SJSU.
SJSU Grad Slam 2022 winners Kate Forrest (Meteorology, MS) and Nathaniel Pergamit (Music, MM) get to move on to the upcoming CSU Grad Slam. Make sure to watch the competition virtually on May 6th.
