Student Trustee Nominations

I’m so happy you are visiting this page. If you are interested in running to be the Student Trustee, here is some additional information about what is requires.

This has been such a great experience for me. Being able to make a difference for your campus at the district level is so rewarding!

To apply to be a student trustee a student you must:
 Be enrolled in five semester units
 Be in good academic standing throughout the
term of office
 Must have completed a minimum of twelve
units in the District at the time of nomination
 Must maintain a 2.0 grade-point-average during the entire term of office

The student trustee position is a paid position and is available to anyone who qualifies!

If you are able to check all of the boxes above, here is a list of the responsibilities.

-The student members are seated with the Board and are recognized as full members of the Board at meetings.
-The student members are entitled to participate in discussion of issues and receive all materials presented to members of the Board (except for closed session).
-Student trustees are considered to have the same responsibility to deliberate for the good of the District as do other trustees.
-Student trustees are held to the same high standards of trusteeship, including participation and preparation, as are all trustees, they are valued as elected members of the board and their role and contributions are just as important.
-Elected student trustees meet with the Chancellor or a designee monthly to review the board agenda and discuss pertinent and topical issues.
-As a valued member of the Board, other trustees rely on the student trustees for their perspective and insight.

Please use my contact page if you have any questions or concerns. You can also contact Kathryn Wilkins, the Executive Assistant to the Chancellor and Board of Trustees.

Spring has sprung! This semester is about half way through! The weather is clearing up and as of today there are about 66 days left until the end of the semester.

I just want to encourage everyone to keep on going. It has been a couple months since the semester started and this is the point where it can start to get difficult. I hope everyone is doing well on their midterms. Give yourself plenty of time to study and prepare. Getting enough sleep is hard as it is, but try to get as much as you can! I just started a new job and it has been difficult for me to get back into my routine, so I totally get it. I’m a professional procrastinator and this is my 3rd year at WCC. Even though it took me a little longer to get done, I will finally be moving on to Chico State once this semester is finished. Everyone works at their own pace, but if you stick to it, you’ll surely succeed.

For those of you looking to apply for scholarships, the application deadline for the WCC Foundation Scholarship is March 22nd! Here is a link for more information about the scholarship and how to apply. Do not wait until the last minute! Foundation Scholarship

I also would like to promote the Associated Students of WCC. They are currently looking for students who want to make a difference in the new academic school year. They will be holding elections next month, and the deadline to turn in a packet is March 27th. You can click this link to download the election packet if you are interested. ASWCC Election Packet They are currently working on a proposal to get water bottle filling stations around campus to make it easier for students to refill their bottles. I encourage you to be apart of the change! They hold meetings every Tuesday from 12-1pm in room 113. Everyone is welcome to stop by.

I would also like to note that if you are interested in representing Woodland Community College at the district level, please do not hesitate to run for the Student Trustee position. You can pick up the election packet from Ana in the presidents office, room 112.

Please see my Student Trustee Nominations page for additional information about qualifications and responsibilities.

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Don’t hesitate to reach out!!

Welcome back everyone!

We have entered another semester and the end is near for some of us. After this semester some will be graduating or transfering, some will have just completed their first year of woodland community college and some of us will have just completed their first semester! Although it seems so far away, it is just a few short months from now!

I hope you all had a great winter break. It feels like it went by just a little too fast for me. As we get into this new year and new semester I would like to start off with a few recommendations for success.

  1. Stay organized.

Weather you keep track of assignments or in your phone, keep them listed somewhere. I find it very help full to use a planner. I can keep track of due dates, upcoming and current assignments and my work schedule all in one place. Don’t worry about having to purchase one, you can get a free WCC planner on campus from student services. If writing in a planner isn’t for you then I highly suggest utilizing your smart phone’s calendar or reminder app.

2. Always attend your classes

Unless you are really sick or absolutely can not miss your shift at work, then do not skip your classes. It is really easy to skip class or justify your reasoning for not going, when really you should be there. Missing too many classes can result in confusion, miscommunication and ultimately you’ll have a harder time understanding the material.

3. Do not be afraid to ask for help!

Woodland Community College has an amazing Student Success Center located in the 800 building at the end of campus. There is a tutoring center and reading and writing center (RAWC) to help you succeed in all of your classes. Visit their page for more information and hours of operation. They open the second week of school, 1/21/2019. Student Success Center

4. Visit your counselor frequently

It may seem like you got this and you don’t need help, but it is still important to see your counselor every couple months. Make an appointment or just drop in if you have any questions or concerns about your classes. If you feel you might not succeed, ask them for advice or help. Visit their office to make sure your educational plan is up to date and you are on the right track. This is what they are here for.

My most successful semesters have been the ones I would bug my counselor every month, used the student success center for help and used my planner for organization. Do not overwhelm yourself. Your success is important and I promise it is worth it.

I wish you all a successful semester this spring and look forward to hearing from you!

As always, use my contact page with any questions or concerns. I will get back to you as soon as I can!

The End is Near

Good evening!

Welcome back to my blog. It’s here! Finals week is finally here. The week is almost over and for those who still have finals today, Good Luck! For everyone else, congratulations. I hope you all have done well. For those waiting to see your final class grade, they are supposed to be posted by Wednesday 12/19 to web advisor. So, until then, relax and enjoy your weekend.

Every semester had it’s challenges, but I would just like to take a moment to say Great Job. You have made it to the end. Another semester is over and you are that much closer to reaching your final goal!

I had the chance to visit our Lake County campus a couple weeks ago and found out their Associated Student Government needs new members! If you attend that campus, I really reccomend you check them out. They are working on great projects including upgrading the student lounge room! They meet every Wednesday from 12-1.

The Woodland Campus is also looking for new members for their Associated Student Government. Visit their website for more information!

I hope you all have a wonderful winter break and a merry christmas with your family and friends.

As always, use my contact page if you have any questions or concerns. Check back for more updates as next semester nears!

Finally November!

It’s November! We are more than halfway through the semester. This is an exciting time and there seems to be so much going on.

Spring Enrollment starts Tuesday, Nov 13 and the class schedule is now available.

As you all may know by now, everyone has had to change their password to something longer and more secure. It is super important as a college district to stay secure, so I hope by now everyone has been able to help our district do that. We wouldn’t want to jeopardize student information being released to just anyone.

We have completed the student elections and the final results are posted on the app. Congratulations to the new members of ASWCC! We have a new President Humberto Garibay, Vice President Destiny Dominguez, Director of Student Affairs Nim Sohail and Director of Student Body at Large Gertaj Grewal. The first meeting is going to be held Tuesday Nov. 20th in room 314! Everyone is welcome!

My heart breaks for the people affected by the horrible fires. Students, Staff, families and Community members have been displaced and have lost everything. I can not imagine being in that position. The Davis Fire Department is accepting donations for people affected by the Camp Fire. Anything helps…If you can spare $5 or $10 for essential items, they would appreciate it so much! Dutch Bros is also gathering donations for those affected by the fires through out California. Every $1 counts!

Finals week is going to creep up! Stay safe everyone. Please use my contact page if you need anything!! I will respond as soon as possible.
