    Schools App News and Updates 

    Use Schools App to connect with and help students.  Join Schools App now!

    Here’s a staff testimonial:  “In my opinion, I think that the Schools App is a great tool for C&E!  Any time we can directly contact a student on a more personal level, I think it benefits our office.  I think for students, being able to ask questions and receive an answer not from a generalized source (like on our Career and Employment FB page) but from one of us personally, makes the student(s) feel like they have a closer and more comfortable relationship to our office. I think the more we can interact with students daily, the more we can reach them and encourage them to come to our office or approach us if they have questions/concerns/etc.”  – Brittany Bonds, San Jacinto College Career and Employment Center (More …)

    North Campus hosts Fall Fest 

    The North Campus recently hosted a Fall Fest at Channelview High School that turned out to be a great success, attracting hundreds of Channelview students of all ages, as well as many parents and little children.

    Employees representing most North Campus academic and technical programs were on hand to greet visitors and hand out information about their programs. Players from the baseball team and the women’s basketball team mingled with visitors, and cosmetology students provided free face painting.

    The music department provided live jazz music, the culinary arts program provided free hot dogs, and the mental health program coordinated a free cakewalk. Other highlights included a rock climbing wall, a photo booth, psychology analysis demonstrations, music, group dancing, popcorn, cotton candy, and robotics demonstrations.

    Kudos to coordinators of the Fall Fest, including Clare Iannelli, Keisha Smoke, Chris Evans, Erin Lewis, Deborah Longtine, Andrea Mitchen, Dinorah Ramos, Rob Vanya, Christine Torres, Josh Johnson, Shawn Silman, Dr. Gary Friery, Serita Dickey, Jerrel Wade, Pam Campbell, Jennifer Mowdy, Dr. Bill Raffetto, Charlotte Jackson, Ludith Gonzalez, David Gardner, Alfredo Gomez, Louis Dorsey, Diana Zapata, Amy Ammerman, Jo Eggebrecht, Sergio Garcia, Nichole Fearnley, Deanna Clark, Patricia Rice, Mark Escobedo, Dana Kostecka, Mary Cherry, Rita Harris, Brenita Williams-Jackson, and Tom Arrington.

    United Nations Day 

    October 24th is officially known around the world as United Nations Day.   In honor of this day, we are encouraging the entire San Jac District — students, faculty and staff alike- – to wear something representative of their heritage on that Thursday.   We want people to wear anything from a traditional dress or hat straight from their home country to a t-shirt that says “Kiss Me, I’m Irish”.

    Celebrate our San Jac diversity in this fun, simple way.  Share your pictures on Instagram or Twitter using #SJCDiversity and tag @SanJacCollege.  Join Educational Planning & Counseling on United Nations Day, Thursday, October 24, 2013, to further cultural awareness, education, and global competency.
