Get up off the floor already!

Starting this semester, students have increased options for sitting and studying within feet of their classrooms in Rodda North and Rodda South—new study carrels.

These sleek carrels are rows of individual desk spaces separated by low partitions to aid in private study; some have a power strip so students can charge devices while working, a fact noticed by Professor of History Dominic Cerri.

“I was pleasantly surprised to see them. They’re a great addition—useful and accommodating,” said Cerri, who has an office and teaches classes in Rodda North.

Cerri said he doesn’t anticipate any added distraction from the new carrels, pointing out, “At least, it gets students off the floor.”

Actually, City College Operations Director Greg Hayman said, the carrels aren’t really new. They were offered to City College by the Sacramento Regional Public Safety Training Center in McClellan, operated by American River College.

“They came out of the McClellan Safety Center…[which was] repurposing some classrooms,” said Hayman.

These new study areas are a result of combined efforts at City College, Public Information Officer Amanda Davis said.

Before retiring last semester, Reading Professor Jan Lee observed a student need and did something about it.

“[Lee] submitted a college issues form to have them installed because we always noticed students were sitting along the hallways and they need somewhere to sit, obviously, and study,” said Davis. “By her bringing that issue forward, the college collectively looked into it, and this is the solution we came up with.”

The carrels appear to be very popular with their new users.

Quincy Robinson, computer science major, said he was glad to avoid a trip to the library.

“I’m right here…waiting for class in 15 minutes,” said Robinson. “Not sitting on the floor.”
