Many City College students are struggling to find open courses after administrators cut classes to deal with the ongoing state budget crisis. Many of those who have found open classes endure crowded conditions.

According to City College Interim Vice President of Instruction John Ruden, the Los Rios Community College District has already reached the total number of students it will receive federal and state funding for. The LRCCD is currently relying on reserve funds to fall back on in order to accommodate the growing number of enrolling students Ruden said.

Students returning to the academic field who may want to enroll in vocational courses, as well as students looking for courses that are not part of the standard curriculum, have been most affected by these class cuts, Ruden said.

“Since I’ve already completed my basic prerequisites, it’s been rough trying to find classes to take.” City College student Alejandro Contreras said. “It doesn’t help that classes have been jam packed.”

Despite the class cuts, Ruden said that core courses like math, English and science, have seen virtually no reduction. He also said there will be no future cuts in full term courses after the first full week of instruction this fall semester.
