(November 20, 2008) – State high school students visiting the California State University (CSU) Chancellor’s Office YouTube channel will see new videos with a simple message: hurry up and apply if you want to attend a CSU.

The CSU system is asking students, high schools, education groups, news outlets, churches and communities to link and post these YouTube videos on their own websites.

Less than two weeks remain for the fall 2009 priority deadline of Nov. 30, 2008. At least nine CSU campuses will close their application periods for first-time freshmen on that day. Many campuses will follow soon after.
