As our hearts go out to the people of France, we were deeply saddened to learn that one of the victims is a student from Long Beach State University. We extend our support, prayers and sympathies to the victim’s loved ones and the entire Long Beach State community.

We have three students from CSUSM who are studying in Paris and I am relieved to tell you that we have connected with each of them and they are all safe. In addition, we have students from Paris who are studying on our campus and we have reached out to them to offer our support and assistance during this difficult time. We also know that others may be personally connected to this tragedy, please know that we stand in support with you. 

We are grateful for our students safety but mourn the loss of those killed in this and other dreadful tragedies across the globe.
