In Brief

Workshops help lower students’ math anxiety

Special Services is hosting a math workshop directed to­wards students in Math 351 and 251 courses.

Workshops will be every Fri­day from 10:30 a.m. to noon, through March 2.

The workshop will help alleviate math anxiety, test-taking anxiety, as well as strengthen math organizational skills and critical thinking.

The goal is to learn and comprehend strategies and techniques within a collaborating and supportive environment. Although this is offered as a series of workshops, one does not need to attend each individual session.

The workshops are free and will be held in Village 29-2. To reserve a workshop space, call 949-582-4246.

No limitations is the goal of Ability Awareness Day

The Disabled Students Pro­grams and Services Depart­ment is hosting Ability Aware­ness Day today at noon in the Student Services Center, Room 212.

Featured artist will be Toby Forrest and the CityZen Band. The lead singer is a survivor of a serious spinal cord injury, and he carries a phenomenal message along with a great rocking sound.

The event is a reminder that disabilities do not shape the outcome of life, and with the proper accommodations and adaptions, life can still contain endless possibilities.

Lunch will be provided for those who attend. Sign language interpreters will be provided upon request. The event is free and open to the public.

For any questions, please call the Special Services Depart­ment at (949) 582-4885.

Graduation is not a given at Saddleback

The deadline to apply for spring graduation at Saddleback College is March 1. 

Registrar Joyce Semanik said students can download a petition for a degree or certificate. Forms must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records in SSC 102. For more information call (949) 582-4555.


Feb. 14 is not just about romance, think transcripts

Tuesday is the last day to drop a class in the district without receiving a “W” on your transcript. The last day to withdraw from a class without receiving a grade is April 5.

It’s more important than ever this year to manage your attendance because the state legislature has mandated that students cannot retake a course more than three times at a single cam­pus. A “W” on your transcript counts as one time of taking a course.
