OTTERCONNECT is about growth, opportunity and building relationships.  We’ are "linking arms" with our raft of friends and corporate partners to help support their growth goals, and explore mutually beneficial ways they can support our leaders of tomorrow, the Cal State Monterey Bay student-athletes.

 

 If you are one of the many valued businesses in this community, our athletics department and University thanks you.   We look forward to learning more about your goals and how we can lend our support.

 

 It's great to be a CSUMB Otter!  We're proud of our vibrant campus, growing alumni base, and competitive NCAA DII teams committed to winning.  Through OTTERCONNECT, we are making a difference and delivering real value to our partners.
