Stan State Daybook

A variety of programs and activities are on the schedule at Stanislaus State University in Turlock. Following is a summary of some of those events. A schedule of Stan State events can be found on the University Events website. View online at:


Theatre Under the Stars

After a two-year hiatus, Stan State’s Theatre Under the Stars returns May 4 through 7 with “Much Ado About Nothing” by William Shakespeare. Preparations for the play were underway in March 2020 when Stanislaus State moved to remote operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The time has come for the show to go on. While theatre productions continued during the pandemic, they were missing a key ingredient - a live audience. The cast and crew are anxious to bring this timeless comedy to life and delight audiences in the University’s outdoor Amphitheater.


La Defensa Program Returns

Para La Defensa, co-sponsored by Stanislaus State’s pre-law minor and the College of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, returns from a two-year hiatus with a bang. The free event, in Snider Recital Hall from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., May 5, features the Central Valley premiere of “Ricochet,” a documentary that follows the case of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the undocumented man who caused the death of Kate Steinle on San Francisco’s Pier 14 in 2015.


Stan State EduCast

This episode of the Stan State EduCast features Gokce Soydemir, the inaugural Foster Farms Endowed Professor of Business Economics at Stanislaus State and author of the San Joaquin Valley Business Forecast. Topic will be the Economics of High Gas Prices.


In Case You Missed It

Stanislaus State and UC Merced have launched the ‘1300 Campaign’ – a new initiative they are co-leading that aims to enroll an additional 1,300 young men of color at the campuses. The universities will partner with pre-K-12 school districts and other organizations to identify and support students who are underrepresented.


Revised Face Coverings

Stan State continues to require face coverings to be worn in instructional spaces, which includes any room within a building where an instructor, teaching assistant or staff member and one or more students are engaged in teaching, learning, research, creative/performing activities or advising. The face covering requirement was released in other indoor areas as of Monday, April 25.
