Students United to Reach Goals in Education(SURGE)

Students United (to) Reach Goals (in) Education (S.U.R.G.E) provides Cal State Los Angeles students and those who are AB540 (non-resident students exempt from out of state tuition) informational resources to guide them in their educational goals and struggles.
Many students believe that they are unable to purse a higher education after graduating from high school because of their legal and financial status, lack of resources and information. With the appropriate guidance, resources, and support that SURGE provides, they will see that this dream is within their grasp. We also provide awareness among the general student body and community to create a constructive learning environment.
SURGE is open to any student who is interested in being part of an organization that pursues equal access to education and social justice for all.

S.U.R.G.E.'s Mission

  1. Assist students with helpful tools to guide their education.
  2. Initiate a rational conversation with the American public that goes beyond the political rhetoric by sharing our stories and dreams.
  3. Create awareness among the general student body about ALL issues affecting students.
