Submit a Video to Celebrate DREAMer Resource Office Graduates

Hello CSUSM community and allies,

We’re excited to announce that we will be having a virtual graduation celebration to recognize the DREAMer Resource Office classes of 2020 and 2021. The DRO has been working closely with MiraCosta College’s UPRISE program and Palomar College to celebrate our graduating students, and we’d love to have you be a part of it!

Our students will soon be completing a tremendous milestone, something that we know takes determination, dedication and a great support system. We’d like to formally ask and welcome you and/or your department to submit a short video (30-45 seconds) or photo to congratulate and celebrate our graduates' accomplishments. We will be combining all videos into one and sharing it with our students and their loved ones during the event. You are also invited to join us for the online celebration on May 21 at 6 p.m.

Register here.

How to submit a video or a photo to say congratulations on their accomplishments (and a few tips)

  • Check out MiraCosta’s video from last year for ideas.
  • Use your iPhone or Android device to record your video; natural daylight is best, but a well-lit area is fine, too.
  • Remember to hold your phone so that it records horizontal or landscape (not portrait).
  • The full clip doesn’t have to be perfect. We are human, and it’s OK not to be perfect!
  • Speak from the heart.
  • You can film in one spot, walk and talk, involve a pet or family member or roommate -- you name it. Try as best you can to speak to the lens.

When your video is ready, you can upload it here.

Please send us your video by May 7.

If you have questions, please let us know. Thank you for continuously supporting the DRO and our students. We hope to hear from you soon!

In unity,

The DREAMer Resource Office
