CSUN: Family and Consumer Sciences Student Association
Jessi O’Connell is the current President. The club had its first Zenful Day, a time to relax, have some fun, and get some Zen. It was combined with a food drive to benefit the CSUN Food Pantry. Cards for terminally ill children in hospitals across the nation were created during the Zenful Day. They will be promoting FCS Day/Dine In Day in December.
Last year the club had a strong desire to connect majors and those interested in areas affiliated with FCS and share the national philanthropy of creating cards for terminally ill children in hospitals across the nation. The club participated in Homecoming. Sara Digre, the club’s president (and also the CA Student President) delivered over 1300 cards to the National Student Unit at the last national conference in Texas.
