New SCC Environmental Standard for Smoking Takes Effect

Change is in the air at Sacramento City College (SCC) as we embark on healthier environmental standards for smoking in Fall 2014.

Based on feedback from SCC’s participatory governance groups and an extensive survey of students and employees on their opinions about smoking on campus a new smoking standard has been created.

Designated Smoking Areas SCC Campus

In addition to the current Los Rios Community College District (LRCCD) policy of no smoking within 30 feet of building entrances, outdoor air intakes, and operable windows, there will now be no smoking on campus except in Designated Smoking Areas (DSAs).

For more information about this standard, please visit the Smoking Matters on our Health Services website.

Student Athletes Top Priority for SCC’s New Head Women’s Basketball Coach

Julia Allender started June 9 as the new head women’s basketball coach at Sacramento City College.

Allender comes from Ohlone Community College in Fremont, where she served as head coach for the past five years. Previous to that, she was an assistant coach for three years at the college.

As an alumna of San Jose City College, Allender is no stranger to the community college system. In fact, found that her experience as a student led her to prefer coaching at the community college level over other higher education institutions.

“I got into coaching to help people,” Allender said. “From my experiences coaching at the community college level, I saw and realized that there is a large opportunity to positively affect and help players who may have been overlooked or need specific areas of development in order to go on and play at the next level.

“It’s a development level and that’s really what I enjoy about community college and working with these athletes. They have this goal in mind that you’re really helping them go achieve.”

Allender said she was “very much” one of those athletes who needed to be challenged and nudged to reach her performance goals.

“I didn’t really get much better in high school. I was always better than the vast majority of my peers,” Allender said. “So when I began playing at the community college, that gave me an opportunity to get better and add skills that I didn’t have before. It gave me an opportunity to really compete on a daily basis and physically be able to be stronger and move better and be quicker.”

From San Jose City College, Allender went on to play at Southern Utah University with a full Division I basketball scholarship.

“That was my goal; that was my dream,” Allender said. “It was what I wanted to achieve because I knew I wanted to coach.”

Allender said she knew she wanted to coach from a very young age, although she had opportunities to pursue a career as a professional athlete.

“Growing up as a kid, I just loved to help people and I also loved sports,” she said. “I saw how my coaches at that age affected me positively.”

Alllender has a 95 percent transfer rate in her five years as Ohlone’s head coach (100 percent in the last three years), which means she has helped nearly all her athletes transfer to the colleges where they want to play.

While Allender’s first priority is her athletes’ well-being and development, that certainly does not preclude winning games. And she has the track record to back that up — she has won three conference championships in five years at Ohlone and won 105 games in five years.

“I am very highly competitive,” Allender said. “But more than winning, I’m in it to help my athletes in many aspects — educationally, morally, in building leadership skills, giving them tools to live a very successful life.”

Work Experience Education & Internship Program Orientation August 26 – 29

What is an Internship?

An internship is a form of experiential learning, which offers you the opportunity to work in an entry-level, workplace-related position that relates to your major. It gives you a chance to gain valuable experience and make professional connections in your field. Internships can be paid or unpaid, and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate your talent.

While participating in an internship or work experience opportunity (job, volunteer position, paid or unpaid), you will also be enrolled in a Work Experience (WEXP) Course, in which you can earn 1-4 units of academic credit based on the hours of work you complete in a semester.

Orientation attendees will learn about the process of needing to have a job or internship to participate in the WEXP course. The orientation is a valuable way to learn more about Work Experience Courses and how they benefit working students.

For more information about WEXP, including eligibility requirements and contact information, download the WEXP information sheet.

Students have many opportunities to attend an orientation. To view orientation dates, times and locations, visit the SCC calendar.
