H&SS Week: Power to the People • April 5 – 9, 2021
Cal State Fullerton’s College of Humanities & Social Sciences (HSS) Inter-Club Council presents virtual HSS Week 2021. HSS Week is an opportunity to highlight and celebrate everything HSS.
Our theme this year is “Power to The People”. The council’s vision this year is to share the many voices of HSS majors through cultural food awareness, workshops, research, student organizations, and more. Every student at Cal State Fullerton enrolls in at least two classes within our college making it the center of every Titan’s educational experience at the University. Therefore, HSS Week is one way to highlight the transformative power HSS majors have when we come together!
We encourage everyone to virtually participate and visit all of the incredible events we have in store for HSS Week 2021!
Please note: All zoom links are hyperlinked under each club name!
Any questions or concerns, please contact Assistant Dean Connie Moreno Yamashiro at 657-278-2969 or email@example.com.

Discover all the clubs that are part of the Humanities and Social Sciences College! This year we were amplifying the collective power; each club had the option of recording an informational video for students to watch, host a live zoom session, or both. As students attending the HSS club fair, you have the opportunity to get more information than ever with this new approach. Live sessions will be held on Monday, April 5, from 11 am-1 pm. Expect a representative from the organization to be available to answer any club-related questions you may have! Pre-recorded videos will be available to watch throughout HSS week as well. Please visit our HSS Clubs webpage to view.
With over 20 organizations that cater to different passions, you're guaranteed to find something that'll catch your interest!
After virtually participating in the Club Fair either through recorded videos or our live zoom session, we encourage you to take part in a quick survey. If you complete the survey by Wednesday April 7th 11:59pm, you will be entered into an opportunity drawing for an Amazon gift card. We look forward to receiving your
