December 5, Cañada College had the honor of hosting a delegation from Redwood

community hosts, including: Supinda Sirihekaphong, International Program Manager, Carlos Luna, Library Support Specialist, and Cañada students,
Alexandra Zhuang and Joanna Dai.The College looks forward to welcoming students
from the beautiful port city of Zhuhai!
Over the course of two days, nearly 400
students participated in Cañada’s Proactive Registration event on
Wednesday, November 18th, from 8 am - 8 pm and Thursday, November 19th
, from 8 am - 8 pm. Proactive Registration
is an organized and deliberate effort by various campus departments and
programs, dedicated to assisting continuing students enrolled in Basic Skills
and ESL Level 4 and 5 courses with registering for Spring 2016 classes.
Students received “wrap around” support designed help them to select
their classes for next semester, resolve any financial and other academic
holds, and get connected to resources such as Math Jam, Word Jam, and the
Textbook Loaning Collection (TLC) .
One participant stated… “This event was
extremely helpful. Sometimes life gets in the way of getting things done so
it’s helpful that teachers push students more by hosting events like this, they
have no excuse not to register. This is the first time in a long that I
did this on time, not last minute.…
