Long Beach State student-athletes participated in the "It's On Us" campaign in an NCAA-sponsored video competition for all Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) chapters.

It's On Us was originally envisioned as a White House initiative focused on sexual assault prevention on college campuses. It promotes the idea that individuals must be a part of the solution in order to make all college campuses safer.

The goal of our video at Long Beach State is to express to the community that as student-athletes, we recognize the importance of this issue and will use our platform to call attention and help bring positive change.


A reception is held every February for the student athletes that earn a 3.0 GPA or higher in a semester. Immediately following the reception the "Academic All-Star's and faculty head to a basketball game where the All-Stars are introduced at halftime. This allows our fans to see the large number of student athletes with GPA's of 3.0 or above, while also promoting pride for their accomplishments.


Long Beach State is committed to supporting the personal development of a well-balanced lifestyle for student-athletes. We cover a variety of programs to encourage emotional well-being, leadership, personal growth, and life skills. It is mandatory for each student-athlete to attend at least one enrichment program in the fall and in the spring.


The Senior Excellence Program is designed to help senior-level student-athletes make the transition to the next level - whether in sport, further schooling, or finding a job. The Senior Excellence classes meet two times a month for an hour during the fall and spring semesters. This program is open to all senior student athletes but is mandated for all Degree Completion recipients.
