In the Key of "Yay!"


Distinguished alumnus and award-winning singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has something special for an exceptional class of Gauchos.

From One of Your Own


Transfer student Courtney Chan's non-traditional path to higher education brought her some hard-earned wisdom that she shares with her fellow graduates as our 2020 student speaker.

You Did It!

We may not be able to harmonize side-by-side, but we can belt loud and proud together from the comfort and safety of our homes. So get up, get loose and get singing! Join us in our alma mater, "Hail to California," and pat yourself on the back, Gauchos!
