The ASCC Cabinet went over the approved hydration station locations, the next Spirit Day event and the tour for Northern California schools on Monday’s Cabinet meeting.

Next week’s Cabinet meeting will be held Monday, March 1 in BK 111/112 at 2 p.m.

The locations for the five hydration stations are:

  • in front of the library
  • near the Physical Sciences and Technology building
  • near the Cosmetology building
  • near the Social Science building
  • next to the ID center

These locations were chosen because of their high traffic and accessibility to students. They are planned to be up before the end of the semester.

Future Spirit Day events were also discussed.

The next Spirit Day will be Monday, March 23, which is the Monday coming back from Spring Break.

This date was chosen to get students excited about school spirit and to get them more involved with activities on campus.

Commissioner of Student Outreach Sana Khalid, advocated for Student Outreach.

“We want to reach out to students and inform them of the resources that are available to them on campus.”

Operation Outreach often teams up with the Financial Aid office and the Mental Health department to set up events on campus. There is a job fair scheduled for April.

Earth Day is April 22 and there are plans for games and a raffle. The bus program that was previously mentioned will also be unveiled. There will be information on how students can be more environmentally friendly both on campus and at home.

Commissioner of Student Services Edgar Torrez Perez spoke on the trip. The sign-ups for the northern California schools has been extended. UC Davis, UC Berkley, and UC Santa Cruz are the schools on the tour.

“There is a $50 fee for admission that will cover transportation and the rooms. Students will need to bring money for food,” he said.

The tour will be March 16 to 18, during spring break.

Sign-ups can be turned in to the Transfer Center.

Dean for the Technology Division Nick Real spoke about his program, the Career Technology Division.

The program specializes in classes for students specializing in careers in cosmetology, automotive, dental assistance, and welding.

Classes are available at night for students that may have children or jobs during the day. Day classes are also available. Additional information for the program can be found at the Cerritos College Technology Division Site.

Legislation for online voting was not placed on this week’s agenda and was not discussed by Cabinet but is scheduled to be on Monday’s agenda.
