Tourism Too?

Cal State University Bakersfield may soon become a NCAA Division I school. Students recently approved a measure asking to increase fees in an effort to move to Division 1. CSUB is hoping Bakersfield residents will come up with the rest of the money needed. An article in the paper today says, “The move would generate $6 million annually, with 90 percent staying in the Bakersfield area” from people flooding into town and going to restaurants, etc.

Great - just what we need around here – more people.
