Sixteen 10th and 11th grade students from Calaveras Hills High School went on a field trip to San Jose City College's main campus on April 25. Xiomara Martinez was the host, and she began the morning with a fabulous presentation of information about all the programs and services offered at SJCC for students.
After the informational session, the students had the chance to participate in the Major Fair that was on campus at the Student Center. This was where current students could chat with professors and advisors from the various programs available to SJCC students. Cal Hills students completed "passports" by stopping at different info booths, and were treated to a pizza lunch.
After the fair, they had two Student Ambassadors (Fidel and Lionell) -- also student athletes preparing to transfer to San Jose State University this fall -- give an extensive campus tour, showing students around the school and answering lots of questions about the student experience.
The Cal Hills students were actively engaged in the day's activities and we are so grateful to our hosts!
