Our thoughts go to his family, including his CCSF family who will dearly miss him.

4. Anything Goes - Begins April 14

Anything Goes is a musical with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. Written in 1934, the original book was a collaborative effort by Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse, heavily revised by the team of Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. Madcap antics, mistaken identities and romance abound aboard the ocean liner, the USS American, bound from New York to London. Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy #13 Moonface Martin aid Billy in his quest to win Hope. The musical introduced such classic songs as "Anything Goes", "You're the Top," and "I Get a Kick Out of You." Zany comedy and a rousing tap number await you as... you set sail with us!

5. The Working Adult Degree Program - Recruiting NOW for Fall 2017! Tell family and friends!

The CCSF Working Adult Degree Program is returning with a twist. Now located at the Downtown Center, the WADP will be cohort-based, with students learning and collaborating together from beginning to end of the program. Students complete lower division general education requirements for both the local CCSF Associates Degree and the California State University system. Following the set curriculum, WADP students taking 10-12 units a semester, plus two courses in the summer, also earn three degrees in under three years. A Fast-Track option allows students to complete the entire program in 21 months. Due to its emphasis on general education requirements, WADP is a good place to start for students who are undecided on their major. 

The WADP website includes information about the program, degrees earned, sample curriculum, a printable brochure to share, and an online application for students who wish to join. WADP Information Sessions begin in April at the Downtown Center. Check out the website for more information and dates:
