The nontraditional student

The diversity at City College is reflected not only with its growing ethnic minority populations, but also in the various social, financial and academic backgrounds of its students.

For years, community colleges and universities were the domain of the traditional student—a student who lived at home or received financial support from his or her parents or a student who entered college right out of high school.

At one point in time, the nontraditional student—students who work full or part-time, older students returning after a long hiatus, or the single parent—was considered an enigma on the college campus. Now, with 63 percent of City College students considered nontraditional, the diversity across our campus mirrors the demographics of campuses across America.

The way the cookie crumbles

The kitchen counters are covered with baking supplies. There are broken eggshells and empty food coloring bottles in the trash, as well as sugar scattered throughout the table and floors. Krista Colteaux is exhausted from trying what she thought would be fun, yet it has failed for the fifth time. Who knew it would be so difficult to make the ever-popular confectionary, a macaron?

Colteaux loves to cook, and as of recently has been dipping her hand into the mixing bowl of baked goods—literally. Everyone likes cookies and cupcakes, so she has been baking sweet treats for birthdays, events, and just to satisfy a craving.

Baseball is in his blood

Tink! Tink! Tink! The sound of a metal bat hitting a baseball, over and over again. The smell of fresh cut grass. The sound of baseballs hitting mitts repeatedly. The sun overhead. This is where Robert Link feels his passion.

Link, 20, is a City College baseball player. He is the archetypal college athlete and represents the program here at Sac City the way it should be.

That all comes easy for Link, baseball is in his blood.

“He is an excellent example of what community college student-athletes should strive to be,” says City College head baseball coach Derek Sullivan. “His future is bright.”
