The 2014-2015 ASCC Student Senate wishes you a magnificent semester

Seahawk Student eNews - eNewsletters



Here are a few fall semester updates for you from the ASCC:


The student senate will be advocating for your concerns at the Fall General Assembly were we will work toward resolutions that will help our community colleges here in California.


If you are transferring this semester, I want to remind you of the UC and CSU application deadline of November 30th. 


We are making progress in the food availability for students, and we as a student senate will be working with administration to provide the best service possible.  Help us by completing food service survey!


This year the student senate will be having their annual food drive in support of the Second Harvest Food Bank. I encourage you all to donate, as donations raised go to support families in need of food this coming holiday season and year-round. Whether you donate food or money, it will go towards making sure families don't go hungry! Every $1 donated will feed a family of four.


I want to welcome you to attend our free Thanksgiving event for students of Cabrillo College and our community. The Student Senate puts on this event on for students every year, and I hope you will be able to attend.


I and the entire student senate wish you a happy Thanksgiving break and good luck on your midterms! Don't forget that we have tutoring servicesavailable for you in the ILC and the library. Go Seahawks, and happy studying!

ASCC Student Senate President

Second Harvest Holiday Food Drive 2014 


The Student Senate is preparing for its annual food drive in support of the Second Harvest Food Bank. Barrels will begin appearing all around campus in November and December. Main drop-off sites will be in the Cafeteria and SAC East building for you to place your donations, which will go toSecond Harvest Food Bank of Santa Cruz County.


Let's meet our goal of collecting 15,000 pounds  of food! WE CAN DO IT! Reaching this goal will take your support. If every person simply donates 2 lbs. of canned or dry non-perishable food items or just $1.00, we can meet our goal.
