    Heads up! Shell Deer Park turnaround information 


    A message from our friends at Shell Deer Park:


    Our fall turnaround event begins next week. During peak turnaround activities, we will have an additional 6,000 people working the event. They will be split in two shifts, with a net result of +3,000 workers at the site, 24/7. With pre-turnaround work, we are currently up to 2,000 additional workers, will ramp up to peak around mid-October, and we expect to ramp down through November. We recognize any maintenance activity comes with impact and the size of this turnaround event brings additional challenges. We apologize for any negative impact we may have to the community and appreciate your patience as we work through this event that will help us run safely and reliably for years to come. (More …)

    ‘Into Your Success’ advertising campaign launches 

    After more than a year of research, surveys, and feedback from students and employees, the new San Jacinto College ad campaign, “Into Your Success,” has launched. The new campaign focuses on the student; works across the College District, whether for an academic or technical program, or a student support area; and centers around the message that whatever our students are into, we’re into that too.

    SJC AlertMe

    In an effort to better communicate with our College community during times of need such as a College emergency, we have added two features to the SJC AlertMe notification system. The first is a mobile app, Send Word Now Direct, to receive critical information through push notifications to your mobile device. The second is weather notifications from the National Weather Service (NWS) via text message and Direct mobile app notifications.


    On Wednesday, May 1, at 10 a.m., you should have received an email to your San Jacinto College email account inviting you to download the Send Word Now Direct app. You can access the Apple and Android app stores via our website to download the app to your mobile device. Please note that you must use your San Jacinto College email to login to the Direct app from your smartphone device that you wish to receive push notifications on.


    SJC AlertMe has been configured to send employees and students critical weather notifications from the National Weather Service. Notifications are set to be sent between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you have signed up to receive SJC AlertMe messages via text and the Direct mobile app, this is how you will receive these weather notifications.


    For additional information about SJC AlertMe, visit the San Jacinto College website.


    Thank you!

    Campaigning on campus information 

    As the midterm elections are heating up, there are several candidates who want to get their information in front of voters. It is good to encourage students to get out and vote but please remember that college resources cannot be used to support any candidate or party.


    Please note that registered students are able to express their views (or campaign) while on campus but must use the designated expressive activities zones located on each campus if they want to display signs, utilize a table, or draw a crowd of 25 or more people.  If you have questions about the use of the expressive activities zones please contact the Student Engagement and Activities Office on your campus.

    Thank you.

    September is National Preparedness Month 


    Every September, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with 3,000 global, national, regional, and local governments, as well as private and public health institutions, supports emergency preparedness efforts and encourages Americans to take action before, during, and after an emergency. Every community in the United States should be ready to respond to an infectious disease outbreak, chemical or radiological release, or natural disaster.

    This September, CDC will team up with Ready.gov, federal and public sector partners, and state and local public health departments nationwide to raise awareness about The Power of Preparedness during National Preparedness Month (NPM).

    This year marks the 100th anniversary of the great 1918 influenza pandemic, which killed 50–100 million people. Planning and preparedness for all types of public health emergencies is vital for keeping communities safe. States and communities are developing preparedness plans and strengthening their ability to respond to a broad range of public health emergencies.

    This year’s call-to-action, Prepare Your Health, highlights four areas that complement the roles that individuals, state and local public health departments, and CDC play in creating community health resilience. It takes everyone pulling in the same direction to build communities and a nation that can withstand, adapt to, and recover from personal and public health emergencies.
