CSU Super Saturday began more than a decade ago as a collaboration between the CSU, its campuses and predominantly African American churches throughout California. The purpose is to increase the rate of African American students enrolling and graduating from the CSU. During, Super Sunday, CSU leaders attend Sunday services and from the pulpit speak to the congregation about the importance of a higher education. After the service, students and parents have an opportunity to meet CSU experts in admissions and financial aid.
