PHOTO EPIC - Fall '22 Begins
August 29, 2022 - 02:37 PM
The Fall 2022-23 school year is off and running, and the barren campus over the summer has come back to life with tens of thousands of students returning to in-person classes, using labs and resources, or just finding a place to study.
If there is one thing that does not change over the years, it's our photogenic students.
They are always ready for a pic, no matter what circumstances life may throw at them.
For many of our students, this is the first time they have been in-person for school since the pandemic began.
The center of campus is still a giant construction site for the upcoming Student Center, due in 2023.
The upcoming Gym & Aquatics Center, on the south side of campus, is coming along nicely, as well.
The other major construction project on the north side of campus, the upcoming Transit Center, can now be walked over from the Gateway Parking Structure, making it the most convenient parking for many buildings on the main campus.
There are plenty of spaces available in both the Gateway Structure and the Champion Structure, a stone's throw away, down Bonita Ave.
Come September 6, parking permits will be required for students.
Mt. SAC is a big campus and students would be wise to wear their walking shoes.
Students will find a convenience store located on the first floor of building 77.
The Campus Map will definitely be your friend.
It's also in the Student Planners being handed out at the Information Booths and Student Services.
Mt. SAC has a wide variety of Student Services, from accessibility to financial aid, that will help with the academic journey. You will find those in the 9 buildings, with 9B holding a lot of them. Be sure to check it out. Some students, with classes across campus, use a variety of ways to get around. Who can blame them?
Industrial Design and Engineering student, Ryan Lau built this sweet little remote-control cart himself to haul his equipment and supplies around.
Temps were in the 90s for the first week of school. Even with a skateboard, you will want to find some shade to take a break.
Mt. SAC has a lot of lawns, perfect for rest. These students came prepared.
Another convenience store is located on the bottom floor of building 61, across from the Administration building, where students pay their fees.
While the Mountie Café is the place to go for a burger, pizza and other hot food. Some students just like the tables for studying.
The Library is a great place to rest and study: always air conditioned and plenty of resources that you will need.
The Library's vast physical and online collections are bound to come in handy. You can also get a paper printed there or reserve a private room for group study.
There are a wide array of spots and centers all across campus to get your work done. This is the STEM Center on the third floor of building 61.
It's newly remodeled and has a lot of cool features. Look for a full story on it in the future here at the Newsroom.
All it really takes is an electrical outlet for students to find a place to study.
And now... it's off to class!
Life Sculpture class got their hands dirty on the very first day.
A Non-Credit Certified Nursing Assistant class used each other to practice medical care tasks.
Horticulture students learn in classrooms, as well as by working at the farm.
Our farm has a plant side, and an animal side, with different programs available for each.
We bet these students were happy they took swimming.
The IMPACT program prepares students for employment, living independently, participating in college life, and community involvement.
These students are about to learn the History of Rock (music that is).).
Mt. SAC welcomes all of our new and returning students with open arms. We wish them a great school year ahead and hope they keep their head up and smile in the on position!
