MAKING A DIFFERENCE

For decades, the Sandoval family has provided scholarship opportunities and other assistance to benefit the Cal State LA community. A transformative gift from The Ahmanson Foundation is enabling the university to revitalize the State Playhouse and promote a robust learning environment for students. Alumna Iona Lofrano achieved success as a student-athlete with the support of fellow alumna and tennis legend Billie Jean King.
