Career Day

Approximately 40 companies participated in SCC’s 45th annual Career Day in the Quad on May 3.

Students took the opportunity to meet with representatives from a variety of businesses, including PepsiCo, Cal Recycle, Sacramento Job Corp, and Elk Grove Unified School District among many others.

In addition, several SCC departments were out showing students what types of majors are available and how they can help land one of the jobs being offered.

Financial Aid

May 3 is the “Big Day of Giving” and the Los Rios Foundation is accepting donations through the BDOG website that will be funneled to SCC.
According to the district, any employee donation made before midnight May 4 will be directed to our respective colleges, so the financial support will do good work where we do good work.
Those funds will be sent to the SCC Foundation to help augment student scholarships, text book vouchers and other programs that help students and the college.
Please consider making a donation today – May 3.

Equity April

Equity April, the series of events centered around developing plans and achievable goals for the SCC Student Equity Plan held throughout the month, ended with a broad-based symposium on April 29 at Casa Gardens.

About 40 students, faculty, classified staff and administrators discussed barriers to student success, root causes of those barriers and potential solutions.

Silver Tassie

City Theatre, SCC’s production wing of the drama department, is currently staging “The Silver Tassie” by Sean O’Casey.
The play embarces farce, tragedy and statling excpressionism as it follows Harry Heegan from celebrated Irish football hero to the nightmare of World War I trenches. After returning home, Harry finds everyone dances and forgets.

Performances continue through May 15 in the SCC Art Court Theatre with curtain times as follows:
April 29, 30, May 6, 7, 13 and 14 at 8 p.m.
May 1, 8, 14 and 15 at 2 p.m.
Ticket prices range from $10 to $15 depending on dates and times. Discounts are given to all Los Rios students with ID, Seniors, Veterans/Military, persons with disabilities, and members of SARTA (Sacramento Area Regional Theater Alliance).

The Silver Tassie is directed by Christine Nicholson.

smoke-free at SCC - fresh air - sky and grass

Beginning on August 20, 2016, the first day of the Fall 2016 semester, Sacramento City College will become a smoke-, tobacco- and vape-fee college at all three campuses.

At that time, SCC will join American River College and most other universities in the area by becoming smoke/tobacco/vape free.  This decision follows, by about two years, the college’s effort to designate smoking areas around campus. It also closely follows surveys about one year ago that indicated going smoke/tobacco/vape free was favored by a majority of students and employees.

Soon you will begin to see posters, fliers and banners around the college reminding you to prepare for this change in college atmosphere.

Priority 1

Students who have Priority 1 registration for Summer/Fall 2016 classes should have a date from the admissions and records department. The enrollment period for Priority 1 students – basically those current students who have completed units within the Los Rios Community College District – opened on April 25 and will continue through May 6.

Students, it is important to register when your appointment is available in order to ensure the best chance at getting the right classes at the right times. If you wait, the right classes may not be available any longer.

 

Scholarship 16

The annual SCC Student Scholarship Awards event was held April 26 in the Performing Arts Complex. Approximately 160 students were recognized for earning one or more scholarships donated by local people and organizations. All are administered by the SCC Advancement Office, who put on the event in coordination with the SCC Awards Committee.
Congratulations to all students, and thank you to all scholarship donors!
