4th Thursdays

The CSU Maritime Academy Alumni Association has organized monthly, casual, come-if-you-can gatherings in cities where Cal Maritime alumni are living and working. Dubbed 4th Thursdays, the concept was spearheaded in the San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle, and has expanded to many other regions across the globe. Generally, 4th Thursdays start around 5:30 p.m. at pre-determined local brewpubs and restaurants, and are intended to be casual social gatherings.

The goal is to have the 4th Thursday events in major cities where Cal Maritime alumni are based. That way, whether at home or traveling, alumni will know on the fourth Thursday of the month, they can find a place near them where they can connect with fellow Cal Maritime alumni.

Below are the current scheduled 4th Thursday locations.  This is updated as new venues are added.  If you live in an area that does not currently have an organized 4th Thursday event and you'd like to volunteer to organize one, contact the alumni office at alumni@csum.edu or 707-654-1299.

Be sure to use the hashtag #4thThursdays when posting about the event on social media!
