On Feb. 14, CSU Super Sunday services will take place at 31 churches throughout California.

In Inglewood at 10 a.m., CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed will speak to hundreds of Faithful Central Church parents, students and congregants with the message to begin planning for college admission as early as middle school, and to enroll in challenging classes that prepare for college.

CSU Super Sunday is the annual kick-off to the university's African American Initiative and church partnerships. Now in its fifth year, the CSU has expanded Super Sunday outreach to 100 California churches over several consecutive Sundays.

The complete list of churches with the schedule of events is available online and includes locations in Northern, Central and Southern California.
