Breakout Sessions: 

"Party Smart" (EBS 309): This workshop  is meant to be an open discussion on the topic of partying, drinking alcohol, and the use of drugs. What are the commonly abused drugs? Why do people use alcohol and drugs? What are the dangers associated with these substances and the combinations of them? How do I stay safe if I do choose to use substances? If I am worried about a friend's substance use, how do I help them? All of these issues will be addressed.

Transfer 101 / iPath (A 211): Make the most of your time at SBCC!  Discuss what classes to take and how to get guaranteed admission to selected schools across the country. iPath: It can be difficult to determine what courses to take for your transfer and degree goals; where do you go for the right information?  Come hear about common pathways toward transferring.
