A former SCC sociology student, Sociology Professor Nich Miller and several city organizers made an incredible comic book that tells stories from South Sacramento!

The stories in the comic came from interviews with community members across the city, including SCC students participating in an optional service-learning assignment in Professor Miller’s HSI-SAGE Sociology 300 course. They explore topics of systematic inequality, structural violence and racism, and community health.

The comic book was funded by the California Endowment as part of a four-city community engagement project.

A digital copy of the comic book is available online at

Husham Haroun unveiled a student mural on Dec. 12 created thanks to one of the SCC Centennial mini-grants. Husham and Henry Fisk were the main contributors to the mural that saw about 10 students of the SCC Art Club spend the better part of a year working on the project, both on campus and off.
One portion of the mural depicts the early years of SCC, in black, white and gray, with the original administration building and Hughes Stadium. Another portion, including the current LRC, was colored in sepia tones to show the college’s building years. The last portion is in full color and shows two recent graduates, including a first-generation college student and several on-campus programs, such as Rise, Puente and EOPS.
Congratulations – and thank you! – to these dedicated students. The mural will be on display after the new year on campus.

The Los Rios Community College District has just announced that students may now use a payment plan to pay for class fees for the spring 2017 semester and future semesters as well.
The service is provided by CashNet, and is similar to a layaway plan. Students may divide their fees by the number of months between registration and the first day of class. There is $15 handling fee to use the service.
Sacramento City College believes this payment plan will be useful particularly for students with high priority registration who may be waiting until after the holidays to register for spring classes. With this option, students can keep their priority registration and pay off the fees over time.
For more information on the new payment plan options, please see this Los Rios webpage.


The Sac City Panthers beat Sierra College 21-20 in overtime Saturday to claim victory in the Centennial Football Game, held at the end of a very productive day in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Sacramento City College.

After the teams finished regulation tied 14-14, Tyree Hanson scored on a 4-yard run, and Elijah Siemering kicked the extra point for a 21-14 lead. The extra point proved to be the game winner, as Sierra also scored a touchdown during their overtime possession, but failed on the extra point attempt.

Hanson finished with 213 yards rushing on 39 attempts during the driving rain storm.

Congratulations Panthers, who improved to 4-2 on the season and 1-0 in conference play.

The Sacramento City College Art Department is pleased to present, as part of the campus-wide Centennial Celebration, an exhibition featuring historical and archaeological objects from SCC during the past 100 years.

Dr. Bill Doonan, professor of archaeology at SCC, undertook the project to glean through massive piles of stuff that has been collected throughout the years and decide on 100 objects that reflect the rich history of this college. He published a book entitled “A History of Sacramento City College in 100 Objects” as part of the college’s centennial celebration. The book is available to purchase at the Kondos Gallery, the College Store and the SCC Foundation Office for $25.

This special exhibition will be in the Kondos between October 11 – 26, with the opening reception at noon on Oct. 11. The Kondos is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday evenings from 4 to 7 p.m., and by appointment. It will also be open during the Open House and Fair on October 15.
