KEJ farewell reception homepage

Students, employees and friends of President Kathryn E. Jeffery threw her an emotional going-away reception on Thursday, Jan. 28 in the Learning Resources Center.

Each constituency group presented Dr. Jeffery with a memento  to celebrate her 8-year tenure as CEO at Sacramento City College. Student Senate President Marianna Sousa read a personal poem that she wrote for the occasion.

Dr. Jeffery has been named the President and Chancellor of Santa Monica College, and will begin her tenure there soon. She joked that Sacramento City College, where she was a counselor and adjunct music professor in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, was the best community college in “Northern” California to the delight of the gathered crowd.

Study Abroad homepage

Students who may be interested in studying in London during the Fall 2016 semester are encouraged to attend an informational presentation at  Noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4 in Rodda Hall North, Room 264.

At the event, you will learn the cost (and how financial aid can be used for the trip), the classes that will be offered, and many of the add-ons that can accompany the Study Abroad trip.

Many SCC students have spent semesters in foreign countries over the years, and report a valuable experience not only in terms of the education received, but also in the cultural immersion of the program.

Organ homepage

When 13-year-old Marina Figueroa passed away three years ago, her mother Nicole Perez donated her organs and helped save four people’s lives. It was Marina’s wish to be an organ donor.
Come New Year’s Day, Marina will be honored for her gift by being one of 60 donors chosen to have their likenesses illustrated on a Tournament of Roses Parade float.
Nicole told the heart-wrenching story to two Psychology of Death and Dying classes on Dec. 1, and urged SCC students to consent to being organ donors themselves. In addition, her story was featured on several local morning television news programs.

Save Your Spot homepage

Don’t forget to Save Your Spot!

The Spring 2016 priority enrollment period has begun, and will continue through Dec. 12. That means current students have the opportunity to choose classes for next semester between now and then, depending on your priority date. Registering for classes the target date ensures current students the absolute best chance of getting the classes you want and need this coming Spring Semester!

If you do not take advantage of the priority enrollment period, then you will have to wait until general enrollment, which occurs later in the month of December and into January. Waiting until then will make it much more difficult to sign up for the classes your want and need.

To learn of your priority enrollment date, log into your eServices account and check your email. It was sent to you by the Los Rios District on Nov. 12.

So, take advantage of this opportunity and Save Your Spot!
