Mexican Consulate

SCC Well Represented at ‘Steps to College’

For the fourth year, Sacramento City College has participated in the Mexican Consulate “Steps to College” event.

This year brought increased campus participation in the event from planning to counseling and advising. Financial Aid Officer, Javier Arguello, was the SCC representative on the planning committee ensuring event communication on campus.

SCC was well represented throughout the event. In the tent housing the College Fair, well over 700 potential college students and their families received information about SCC’s programs and services. There were 23 faculty, interns, classified staff, supervisors, student ambassadors, managers, President Dr. Kathryn Jeffery, and Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Services Victoria Rosario answering questions.

In the Consulate building, three SCC financial aid officers assisted in the “Cash for College” section. Jeanette, Jonathan, and Javier assisted approximately 25 students and their families complete the FAFSA/CA Dream Act application.

At the Counseling Station, Irma Rodriguez, SCC EOPS Counselor, assisted 26 people while sharing a table with a high school counselor from Roseville and an EAOP student advisor from UC Davis. Mauricio Gonzalez, SCC Counselor, was also kept busy assisting approximately 20 families with counseling questions.

Sandi Ruedas, SCC EOPS/CARE Counselor, assisted approximately 30 students and families in advising and after the college workshops. Only a couple of students attended advising without a parent.

West Sac Anniversary 1

5-Year Anniversary at West Sac Center

WEST SACRAMENTO – Sacramento City College, the Los Rios Community College District and the city of West Sacramento honored the five-year anniversary of the SCC West Sacramento Educational Center on Jan. 29 with a short celebration outside the three-story facility that houses nearly 2,500 students.

The event got off to a rousing start with a local group of dragon dancers and other displays of Eastern martial arts and dancing. This included a Tai Chi demonstration and some weapons displays. Then, West Sac Center Dean Art Pimentel opened the formal celebration by giving a short history of the center and those who shepherded SCC’s commitment to West Sacramento in the years leading up to the center’s construction.

Dr. Kathryn E. Jeffery, president of Sacramento City College, remarked that the SCC West Sac Center is located in the new downtown of the city, near the library, civic center and City Hall. She also publicly thanked West Sacramento Center’s Supervisor Janet Lake, who has announced her retirement after 24 years with the college. Los Rios Chancellor Brian King said his dream is to see the next phase of the West Sac Center built to house even more students and classes.

Mayor Christopher Cabaldon related a story about how Sacramento City College and the Los Rios District have helped transform West Sacramento into a more thriving, educated community because of the partnership they have developed with the city. Mary Leland, a member of the West Sacramento Unified School District Board of Trustees and the Director of Advancement at SCC, also spoke about how education has improved in the city since the decision was made to build the West Sac Center.

Currently, 30% of the 2,500 students at the center are West Sacramento residents.
