Preview night

Running around in circles trying to find where a class you wanted is located seem all too familiar?

If these scenarios sound familiar, chances are that you may have procrastinated a bit on the class enrollment process.
In order to ease the burden of the aforementioned stressful scenarios , City College put on a get-to-know-your college event Nov. 5 for high school juniors and seniors.

Students coming from various high schools in the greater Sacramento area were greeted at the doors of the Student Center and given the opportunity to browse the display tables of the various academic and student services departments on campus.
The purposes of the event, officially named Preview Night, was to give students and their parents an idea of where they stand in the application process, and present some of the degree and certificate programs offered at City College as well as enrollment information.

Amy Fong, a high school junior, is still exploring the opportunities at City College but says the event is helpful overall.

“It seems like it’s helpful for people that want to know what they want to do when they get here,” Fong says
