Toro Tuesday Policy

On January 17, 2002, the ASI Senate approved the Toro Tuesday Resolution to recognize Tuesdays during the academic year as “TORO TUESDAYS”. TORO TUESDAYS will serve as the official day to wear California State University, Dominguez Hills Gear. Dominguez Hills Gear consists of:

 

  • University distinguished colored Burgundy and Gold paraphernalia with the CSU, Dominguez Hills name
  • Any other colored paraphernalia with the CSU Dominguez Hills name
  • Any number of similar items being worn will count for one raffle ticket. For instance, three different key chains will merit one raffle ticket
  • Items with the original intent to wear will be counted, not items intended for other use such as pens and pencils
  • Inappropriate placement of items or inappropriate exposure will result in disqualification and not being able to participate in ASI programs for the duration of the school year.

 

To promote the Toro Tuesday resolution, ASI initiated the Toro Tuesday weekly drawing and the Toro Tuesday Grand Finale. Students can enter the weekly drawing every Tuesday by wearing school paraphernalia and signing in the Toro Tuesday sheet at the ASI office.  The winner of the weekly drawing will receive ASI promotional items and be entered in the Toro Tuesday Grand Finale drawing at the end of the semester.  The winner of the Toro Tuesday Grand Finale will receive a scholarship* in the following semester from ASI.

 

Student must have an active account with the University in order to receive the scholarship.

Students who do not have a student account with the University will be ineligible to receive the scholarship. Students should first consult with Financial Aid before participating. Monetary amount will be determined by the ASI Finance Commission during prior year budget cycle.

 

TORO TUESDAY WEEKLY DRAWING

Sign-Up: Toro Tuesday begins during the second week of each semester. On the scheduled Tuesdays of the fall and spring semester, a sign-up sheet is placed at the front desk of the ASI office for students to enter the weekly Toro Tuesday raffle drawing. Students are asked to present a valid student identification card prior to signing-up.  Each student is required to enter their first name, last name, signature, student identification number, club or org (optional), phone number and e-mail.  Based on the number of items worn, the corresponding number of raffle ticket(s) will be entered into the raffle basket.

 

Drawing: Within the same week, a raffle ticket will be drawn by a random student (not an ASI representative) to pull out the winning ticket. The selected ticket is then matched with the corresponding student from the sign-in sheet who will be the weekly winner.

 

Winner’s Notification: Winners are notified via e-mail and/or a phone call that they are the Toro Tuesday winner for the week. Winners are asked to come by the ASI office to pick up their prize.

 

Weekly Prize: Winners are asked to complete the winner’s form and present their student identification card for confirmation upon winning. Once the winner’s form is completed, winners are given their weekly prize.

 

VIRTUAL TORO TUESDAY

If students are unable to access campus (global pandemic, campus shutdown, etc.), Toro Tuesday will be conducted on the ASI social media channels.

 

Participation: Every Tuesday, the ASI social media accounts will ask students to participate in a “Theme of the Week” post. Students will be asked to participate in the “Theme of the Week” and tag the appropriate ASI social media account to receive an entry. An additional entry will be rewarded to the student if they are wearing any amount of campus attire. For example, if a student takes a photo of themselves and is wearing multiple Dominguez Hills attire, they will receive two entries for that week. Students will be allowed to post a second time to increase their entries for the week. The maximum entries per student per week shall be four.

 

Drawing: Within the same week, all student participants will have their name entered into an Excel or Google Sheets page with a number assigned to their name. A random number generator will be used to select the winner of the weekly drawing, with the winning number being matched to the corresponding student from the participation sheet.

 

Winner’s Notification: Winners are notified via e-mail and/or a phone call that they are the Toro Tuesday winner for the week.

 

Weekly Prize: Winners are asked to complete and submit the winner’s form. Once the winner’s form is completed, winners will be emailed a virtual gift card as their weekly prize. All prizes must be claimed prior to the end of the semester for which they were issued.

 

TORO TUESDAY GRAND FINALE DRAWING

Drawing Logistics: All weekly winners’ names are printed in a legal-size paper, pre-folded and placed in the basket prior to the event.  Winners are notified via e-mail about the date, time, and location of the drawing.  There are normally fourteen weekly winners and the Grand Finale is drawn the 15th week of the semester or the week prior to finals week.

 

Grand Drawing Winner Selection: A raffle basket with the pre-folded names will be brought out at the start of the event. An ASI representative will pull one piece of paper out of the basket at a time. The last two remaining names pulled out will be the Toro Tuesday Grand Prize winners.

*If the final two names drawn are the same student, the $2,000 scholarship will be deferred to the previously removed student entry.
