A 50 year tradition devoted to CSU Stanislaus Warrior spirit and entertainment, Warrior Day, has been cancelled after a decision by CSUS Student Affairs was made to eliminate the sale of alcohol at the event.
“The CSU Stanislaus Associated Students Inc. (ASI)is announcing the cancellation of the current year Warrior Day scheduled for May 11, 2012,” stated a March 28, 2012, ASI press release.
Dr. Suzanne Espinoza, CSUS Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs, wrote a letter on March 23, 2012, to ASI President Mehran Khodabandeh stating her decision to not approve the sale of alcohol at the Warrior Day event.
ASI has released a video explaining that they were “backed into a corner” and forced to cancel Warrior Day in an attempt to save the event from being cancelled by CSU Stanislaus forever.
There will be an open forum next week on Thursday, April 5th, 2012, at 3pm in Carol Burke Student Lounge to address concerns with Mehran, Espinoza, and others involved.
