The SPSCC Foundation will host its annual fundraising gala, The Experience, at 6:15 p.m. on Sat., Oct. 3. The Experience is the Foundation’s largest event of the year, raising nearly $500,000 to support scholarships and student success at SPSCC.
While seating capacity limits this event to about 500 attendees each year, the virtual format of this year’s event allows everyone to experience how SPSCC is changing the lives of our students and our community.
SPSCC is kicking off the 2020-21 academic year with eleven new full-time, tenure-track faculty members. Instructors will teach across numerous pathways, including two new professors in Natural and Applied Sciences, three in Applied Technology, one in Social Science & Business, and five in Nursing. Each new hire brings a wealth of expertise in the subject they teach, are using innovative ways to keep students engaged online, and all are committed to student success.
Students who work as a peer writing tutor typically won’t use that experience as a pathway to a novelist and librarian, but it worked out that way for one SPSCC alumni. Brooklyn-based Hal Schrieve, class of 2014, is now a published author, poet, and librarian at the New York Public Library.
We’re amped to welcome you to the Fall Quarter through a series of events to connect you to student resources and supports. Join us for Fall 2020 Success Weeks from Sept. 14 to Oct. 2. Success Weeks are a great way for new (and returning) students to get connected and feel supported at SPSCC—virtually!

As the Fall Quarter approaches, SPSCC wants students to know the College has $500,000 in CARES Act funds still available for student need. These funds can help students pay for technology, tuition, food, housing, health care, child care, and other basic needs.
As the SPSCC Craft Brewing & Distilling program gears up for its second cohort of students this September, the Craft Brewing and Distilling Center is in the final stages of equipment installation and the program continues to expand with new staff and exciting industry collaborations.

Nickole Rosalez didn’t intend to be SPSCC’s 2020 student commencement speaker. But when she found out English professor Corrie Martin nominated her for the "most changed student," it made her think about submitting her application for student speaker. The nomination meant a lot to Nickole because of how she began her journey at SPSCC.
“I started in the High School+ program," Nickole recalled. "It felt so good to finish [high school], I wanted to keep accomplishing things."
