City College cuts classes

Although tuition fees did not increase this semester, City College and its student body are feeling the effects of California’s budget shortfall with canceled classes and more students fighting for spaces in the classes that remain open.

Under Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s budget proposal, released Jan. 9, the Los Rios Community College District would face an approximate cut of $15.4 million, and an approximate $3 million budget cut for City College. As a result, City College is canceling many classes with low enrollment this semester.
