Be a part of spring break CSU Family Adventure Week in Todos Santos!

“Both my wife, Sue, and I had a great time on the Todos Santos family adventure week. Highlights were exploring the town of Todos Santos, swimming with whale sharks, and glamping. It was very informative to learn more about the Todos Santos and CSU collaborations.” – Dr. Steve Withrow, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Clinical Sciences
