Message from the President - May 2017
Last Friday, La Playa stadium was the site of our Commencement ceremony. This celebration marked the conclusion of the College’s academic year and a successful point along the educational journey of 1,526 graduating students. What a proud day it was. I spoke with so many family members who were elated to see their son or daughter graduate from Santa Barbara City College. The whole event was truly a community affair with thousands in attendance.
While this was my 11th commencement as a president and my very first at SBCC, I can tell you, without hesitation, this commencement was the best organized, executed, and celebrated I have ever experienced! I am proud to be part of this wonderful community and celebrate this defining milestone for our students. If you missed the event, you can watch the live stream by clicking here
