CSUMB's first homecoming was a success by all measures.
On Saturday night, Oct. 8, the stands at the Otter Sports Center were filled with 400 current students as well as alumni who had returned for the big game. They were treated to the volleyball team's first home win as a member of the California Collegiate Athletic Association, a 3-1 victory over CSU-Stanislaus.
On Third Street, the 13 entries in the shopping-cart parade - the CSUMB equivalent of floats - strutted their stuff before a panel of judges, who named the Otter Bay Café's entry the winner. A bonfire and barbecue, as well as a mixer for alums, served to rally the crowd before game time.
And a student tradition has been established.
