Tuesday, December 1 has been designated as “Giving Tuesday” and is one of the most important days in the remaining calendar year for non-profits including our very own Roadrunner Scholarship Fund. Help fund the scholarship needs of over 300 student-athletes at CSUB with a tax-deductible gift on Tuesday and throughout the month of December.


Dear Roadrunner Fans,

I am extremely thankful for the opportunity that has been given to me when I was announced as the Director of Athletics at CSU Bakersfield on August 20, 2015. I am thankful that every day our department has the opportunity to make a difference for more than 315 student-athletes at CSU Bakersfield. I am thankful that we were able to graduate 50 student-athletes this past year and achieve the highest cumulative GPA in our history. I am thankful that our teams participated in more WAC Championship games than any other WAC school, ultimately winning WAC Championships in Volleyball and Baseball. Finally, I am thankful that CSU Bakersfield can represent the great city of Bakersfield across the nation.

CSU Bakersfield Athletics is thankful to have been providing 45 years of opportunities to student-athletes. We hope you will consider an end-of-year gift that will continue our student-athletes success into 2016 by clicking HERE, or calling (661) 654-3209. All donations are tax deductible in 2015 if received in our office by December 31, 2015.

We are thankful to have your support of our student-athletes and CSU Bakersfield Athletics. Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year.


Kenneth “Ziggy” Siegfried

Athletics Director
