It's never too late to make an impact!
Both in competition and in the classroom, CSUB scholar-athletes are champions.

These Roadrunners represent the university in our community and on the national stage. While at CSUB, they balance the challenges of competition, practice and travel with the rigors of NCAA academic requirements.


We are proud to have over 300 scholar-athletes representing 16 NCAA Division I sports. They have been recognized both athletically and academically. `Runner scholar-athletes have won seven conference championships, donated 3,760 community service hours last academic year, and achieved a GPA of 3.0 or higher in 17 straight terms.


Your gift directly supports our Athletics Excellence Funds. Your contribution can make a difference in the lives of CSUB scholar-athletes, helping them succeed in the classroom and prepare for their professional careers. In return, the `Runners give back to the community and make the Bakersfield region proud with their competitive success.
