California State University Dominguez Hills

California State University, Dominguez Hills, also referred to as CSUDH, was built in 1960. However, it was only in 1966, following the Watts Riots, that the university started its full fledged educational programs in response to the communal outcry over the lack of higher education opportunities in Los Angeles' African American suburbs.

CSUDH offers enrollment to over 13,000 students every year on its 346-acre campus. There are more than 40 undergraduate majors, 20 master's degrees, and a number of certificate and credit programs that students can choose from. The school also has a recognized nursing program.

The athletic teams of CSUDH are known as the Toros, and the university boasts of a 27,000 seat multiple-sports complex called the Home Depot Center. There are separate soccer, cross-country, volleyball, basketball, softball and track and field teams for men and women. The alumni consists of literary and screen personalities like Wendel Vernon Eckford, Kate Gale, Scott Shaw, Clarence Gilyard, John Langley, Lela Rochon and Brian Kehew, and famous journalists like Steffan Tubbs.
