There are many new, friendly faces in our work from home offices! Meet the pets and children keeping CSUS staff and faculty company.

Shelburn, an older black and white hound

During this time in which CSUS faculty and staff are working from home, we all miss our human colleagues and friends. However, through our online meetings, we have been able to meet some new (often fuzzier) friends who have been helping their humans do their jobs.

Here are some of the adorable CSUS colleagues who we've been meeting over the past few weeks.
