The 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 5th, CSU San Diego had 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 for a chance to win one of three possible prizes. With 19 campuses represented from the CSU system, it will be an exciting event!
