On November 6th, the United Outreach Services, which consist of counselors from the local community colleges, UC Santa Barbara, CSU Northridge, CSU Channel Islands, and Cal Lutheran University, made a presentation to seniors regarding the different colleges, the various admission processes for the different campuses and financial aid.The filing period for the California State University (CSU) system began in October and will continue to November, 30, 2003.
