The Greater Sacramento Urban League is holding a Diversity Job Fair at the Sacramento City College campus, Thursday, Feb. 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Center.
More information is available at www.gsul.org/diversity-job-fair-2017.
When you have a moment, stop by the assessment center (in the new Student Services Building) and take the free, new STEM assessment. It will help show you how apt you may be at math, science and engineering classes.
Each person who takes the test will then be invited to special events (throughout the semester) to introduce the various science, math and engineering opportunities at SCC.
We call this STEM-ULATION, and hope to see you there.
As students wait for their acceptance letters, SCC alumni Xavier Garcia blogs about his academic journey from SCC to USC.
“Throughout high school, I was not the best student. I remember clearly when my final report card came in and my mother saw all D’s she disappointedly told me “out of all my kids, I counted on you to succeed in life so you can give me a better life.” Hearing those words come out of my mother’s mouth and realizing that many members of my community, including my siblings, did not pursue higher education, something changed inside of me. As a result, I decided to attend community college with the hope of being able to not only help out my mother, but also my community. “- XG

AOn February 2, 2017, 145 high school students, spent the day at SCC engaged in interactive, hands-on career exploration in three departments —Graphic Communication, Photography and Theatre Arts.
Students were exposed to a variety of real-world creative experiences. In Graphic Communication labs, students animated a falling domino run to explore rigid-body dynamics, and worked in graphic design teams to create a user experience tailored to a specific audience and context. The Photography workshop showed students how to diagram lighting for studio shots using Adobe Photoshop, while Theatre Arts inspired students to act in their break out session Shakespeare Alive: Heroes, Lovers, and Fighters Come to Life. And the tech-minded explored the art of stage lighting!
This event was a collaboration between the Capital Academies and Pathways (CAP) Sector Coach for Arts, Media and Entertainment/Digital Media (AME/DM), SCC Faculty in Graphic Communication, Photography and Theater Arts, and SCC’s CTE Transitions Coordinator. The event was co-sponsored by the Sacramento City College Office of Instruction and the Elk Grove Unified School District.
A group of about 40 faculty, staff and students met early Friday morning to learn about the possibilities of starting a “maker space” at Sacramento City College.
Also known as “hacker labs,” maker spaces are places where tools and materials are available for people to come together and collaborate, explore, tinker, build and create.
The Maker Movement is rapidly growing at educational institutions around the world. The California Community Colleges is offering a seed grant and implementation grants to community colleges statewide who join the movement.
At the meeting on Friday, SCC took its first step toward creating a maker space for innovation!
