"This is one of many ways our SDSU community comes together to celebrate our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion," said SDSU Chief Diversity Officer Aaron Bruce. "Celebrations for students of different identities and expressions highlights their accomplishment and uniqueness. Students get the opportunity to commence their time at SDSU with their peers, family, friends and community members by their side."
