On January 11, over 125 new students participated in X-Treme Saturday. Dr. Blake, Vice President, Student Services, welcomed the new students and Nohel Corral, Director of TRiO Program was the emcee for the day. This “one-stop” event provided students the opportunity to take placement tests in English and Math and met with Counselors in a small group setting to plan their fall schedules and Student Education Plans (SEP).
During lunch, students participated in the Club/Program Showcase, introducing them to Learning Communities, Tutoring, Student Services and other programs at the College. Students later participated in an Orientation session and were able to complete their enrollment and registration in one day!
This successful event wouldn’t be possible without the collaboration of all facets of Skyline College. Many thanks to the Divisions of Student Services, Instruction, Administrative Services, Marketing, Communications and Public Relations and Auxiliary Services and the numerous student volunteers for their time, hard work and dedication to serving our students!
