"This is a great way to reintroduce the campus to the community at large, as well as to the University's many alumni," said Gary Green, who earned his bachelor's degree in business administration-finance in 1980. Now serving as chair of the Concert Under the Stars Community Committee, the executive vice president and manager of California Bank and Trust pointed out that in many ways, the event will be a coming home for alumni who may not have been back to the campus in awhile. "Because students and alumni are performing, it's a good way to see what our students can do and what they can achieve as alumni. It's a chance to see the campus again and share with our kids. I'm very excited about this opportunity for others to get to know and support Cal State Fullerton."
