1. 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:

4. The Monument Quilt

The Monument Quilt, a growing collection of over 2,000 stories from survivors of rape and abuse - written, painted, and stitched onto red fabric - is coming to San Francisco on Saturday, May 6, 2017. It will be displayed on the City College of San Francisco football field (Ocean near Phelan), from 12:00pm – 4:00 pm. By providing a public healing space, the quilt is building a new culture where survivors are supported, not shamed. Project SURVIVE, City College of San Francisco’s peer education sexual violence prevention program, will be hosting The Monument Quilt. Co-sponsors are the college’s Physical Education and Dance Department, the Women’s Studies Department, and Student Health Services.
