SCC Health Services will host an event called “Paws to Relax,” featuring certified therapy dogs from Pet Partners, on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Center.

This is an opportunity for students to break away from their studies for some stress-relieving puppy snuggles. But we know students aren’t the only ones who needs a break — faculty and staff are also welcome to take “paws” in their busy day and swing by the event!

Faculty, staff and students have an opportunity to meet and chat with Los Rios Chancellor Brian King on Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 12-1 p.m. in the Student Center.

“Brown Bag with Brian” is an informal conversation with Chancellor King on topics related to the present and future of SCC and the District.

Participants are encouraged to bring a “brown bag” lunch. Lemonade, iced tea and cookies will be provided. Questions or comments may be sent to the Chancellor at kingb@losrios.edu.
