2015 - 2016 Civil Core members standing as a group in the park

PSFA Civil Core

The PSFA Civil Core is the official service and voluntary organization of the College. Members of the Civil Core are charged with:

    Enhancing student experiences
    Uniting fellow students
    Encouraging participation in College and campus-wide activities
    Promoting volunteerism

The Core seeks to create a community of caring by demonstrating positive behaviors and encouraging kindness in others. The Core hosts social activities, such as bowling and pizza, for new students to assist in forming community within the College.

Civil Core members also mentor freshmen and transfer students and support University-related activities such as Convocation, Explore SDSU, Commencement, Relay for Life, and other College-based activities.

Kindness is encouraged and reinforced through the organization's “SDSU Be Civil Pass it On” bracelet campaign. The campaign, started 4 years ago, has been replicated by Mesa College and the League of Women Voters. The organization also hosts a annual campus-wide Eggstravaganza event to encourage random acts of kindness among the SDSU community.

Core members serve as role models for fellow students; they are held to high academic standards (3.0 or higher GPA) and embody the spirit of leadership and service.

Civil Core recruitment generally occurs in the fall semester. If you are interested, you will need to complete and submit an application.
