Transcripts and Updates!

​Hello COS Giants!

It's been a while, but here we are again in a new semester full of new things to be blogged about! And I shall be here every step of the way updating all of us about important dates and events for us to mark our calendars for!

One thing I would like to remind us all about is to update our academic information and send official transcripts to colleges if you are transferring​ in the fall.

Colleges differ in due dates, but just to be safe try and send things before February the 3rd!

PS: Dough and Joe on the Go! is tomorrow from 9:00A.M. to 12:00P.M. on the Visalia quad! Get your coffee, hot chocolate, and donuts!

Don't get your board taken away!

​Hey there COS Giants! I apologize for this late blog post! I was doing homework and I lost track of the time! #TheStruggle

But putting that aside, I would like to remind us all that COS does have a skating on campus policy. That policy is that there are NO skateboards allowed on campus. This policy is in place in order to protect us Giants while we do our daily academia routines. All it takes is one second of someone turning a corner at the same time that someone is skating around the same corner to cause a serious injury.

And serious injuries aren't fun!

In addition to that, it is also policy that skateboards be taken away from the student who is riding it on campus. Don't get your board taken away, don't put our fellow Giants in danger, and help make COS a more wonderful institution than it already is!

Ciao for now Giants!

Pathway to Lawschool Program!

​Hello COS Giants!

This is Nico blogging to let you all know about the Pathway to Lawschool Program that is taking place at COS!

This is a program that the state BAR has started in order to increase diversity among legal professions.

Only 24 community colleges have been chosen to pilot the program and COS is one of those colleges! Six universities and their respective law schools are taking part in the program as well. Those universities are: UC Davis, UC Irvine, USC, UC San Francisco, Santa Clara University, and Loyola Marymount University.

In order to take part in the program, students must take seven required classes that are offered at COS. This program offers students a very strong pathway for COS Giants who are studying law.

This is an indespensable opportunity for any COS Giant who wishes to make a future in the law profession, so don't miss out if this is your major! For more information, talk to Juan Arzola in room IM206 or Amy Vega Pritchett in room KERN 728B.

Club Rush Day is coming up!

​Hello COS Giants!

This is Nico blogging to report that there is another awesome event coming up, so let's mark our calendars! On Thursday, September 25th, Club Rush will be taking place in the quad from 10:00A.M. to 1:00P.M. This is a perfect opportunity for freshmen to get informed about all the various, fun clubs that our college has to offer, and a perfect opportunity for returning Giants to get involved and make a lasting impression at COS. Being a part of a club has a huge social benefit and getting involved teaches responsibility, leadership, and teamwork. These are all traits that colleges look for when admitting students. Do not miss your opportunity to get information about these clubs and sign up!

And remember: there is a club for everybody!
