No winter lasts forever; No spring skips its turn. ~ Hal Borland

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.

Hi everyone!

My name is Victoria Young and I am the Student Trustee of Woodland Community College. Many of you may not even know what that is and, to be honest, I never knew it even existed until last year! What it means is that I am the student representative for this college and our outreach sites; colusa and lake county. I meet with the YCCD Board of Trustees on a monthly basis to talk about what you, the students, need! Check out the About Me page to learn more.

Every board meeting this semester will be at the District Office in Yuba City and will always start at 5pm. The only exception to this schedule is the board meeting this month, which will be held at the Woodland campus on October 11th. Everyone is welcome to come and I would encourage anyone to attend at least one meeting so you can see how the board of trustees plays a role in each students’ education. There is also various campus and district committees that always love student input or representation. Once I gather a list of those committees and meeting schedule I will post it somewhere on the page as well.

On another note, the Associated Students of Woodland Community College is set to hold a special election to fill various positions on the council! Starting 10/4 you will be able to pick up a special election packet from Marissa in the Dean of Student Services office. The office is located in the 700 building. The packet will outline details of eligibility and when to have the packet turned in by. The campus will hold online voting on November 7th and 8th and the election results will be posted Friday, November 9th by 4pm.

I would like to highly encourage anyone who wants to make a difference on this campus to please run for a position! The ASWCC needs students who come from all different backgrounds. We are a diverse campus and need a diverse student government to adequately support the campus.

If student government is not something you are interested in then I still highly suggest joining a club on campus. It will drastically change your college experience if you get involved.  

As always, I would love to answer any questions you might have, so please to go the Contact page ask away!
