    Grand opening showcases Welcome Center 

    There was a large turnout at the recent grand opening of the new North Campus Welcome Center, which began operations at the start of the Spring semester.

    The facility provides a convenient “one-stop shop” for student services such as testing and assessment, educational planning and counseling, career and employment assistance, First Year Experience programs, disability services, enrollment services, business office, and financial aid assistance. In addition, the campus president, vice president of learning, dean of student development, and dean of enrollment services are housed at the Welcome Center.

    With a centralized location for important services, students can now complete their admission application, apply for financial aid, take placement tests, meet with educational planners, receive career guidance, participate in first year experience programs, and make payments  all in one convenient location.

    “This is an important step to helping our students succeed,” commented Chancellor Dr. Brenda Hellyer. “It’s projects like this that will enable San Jacinto College to continue to serve our community’s educational and workforce training needs. This building is a vital tool to help us better assist and prepare our students.”

    Kudos to all the dedicated employees who helped to coordinate and to assist in the grand opening events, including Janet Cowey, Charlotte Jackson, Amy Ammerman, Clare Iannelli, Danette Conaway, Josh Johnson, Rob Vanya, Donna Jones, Don Spies, Dr. Richard Bailey, Dana Perrodin, Amanda Booren, Andrea Mitchen, and Dr. Randy Snyder.

    San Jacinto College administrators Pam Campbell and Dr. Catherine O’Brien coordinated the recent kickoff meetings at the Central campus of two important educational partnerships — Houston Pathways Initiative, and The Bridge.

    Through the inter-related partnerships, SJC will partner with area colleges and secondary schools to better prepare students for college.

    HPI is a partnership in which San Jacinto College will work with the University of Houston-Clear Lake and Houston Community College (HCC), as well as the Pasadena, Deer Park and Galena Park Independent School Districts. The Bridge, coordinated by Campbell, is a collaboration between SJC and all of the secondary schools in the San Jacinto College district — Channelview, Deer Park, Galena Park, La Porte, Pasadena and Sheldon Independent School Districts.

    “The two programs are tightly connected,” commented Dr. O’Brien, who serves as the College’s dean of teaching and learning, and who is heading up coordination of the HPI program for the College. “Houston Pathways is going to create a ‘college-ready culture’ by working with faculty to better prepare students for college. The Bridge is going to create a ‘college-going culture’ to help students to understand that everyone needs to go to college.”

    Thank you Pam and Catherine for coordinating these two valuable partnership programs that will mean so much for the continued success of San Jacinto College students.

The campus celebrated a record-breaking enrollment of more than 6,000 for the Fall term.
