Take a Preview of LACC on August 27th

Tours of the campus, same-day admission, help in selecting classes and face-to-face time with faculty and students are just some of the highlights of the August 27th “Preview Day” at Los Angeles City College (LACC), set from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on campus at 855 N. Vermont Ave., Los Angeles.
           “This all-day event is a great way for our community and prospective students to get to know us better,” LACC President Dr. Jamillah Moore said. “Along with the tours, we’ll have workshops on how to let the most out of our campus services and how to benefit from financial aid. We invite everyone to visit our campus and see how much L.A. City College has to offer.”
            Students will start building their futures as Los Angeles City College finishes building its new facilities in the 2008-2009 school year, which officially begins September 2nd.
            “It’s not too late to enroll and take advantage of our new library, parking, child development and science facilities.” Moore said. “Our new Martin Luther King Jr. Library opened this summer. Educating yourself into a new career is vital. I’m sure Dr. King would approve of LA City College’s vision and we are proud our new library bares his name.”
             LACC’s new Child Development Building will open in December. There, students will learn early childhood education techniques and the college’s student-parents will have safe childcare while they are taking classes.
             LACC is the home to over 15,000 full time students with small class sizes and quality faculty. LACC is the original home to UCLA and provides transferable opportunities to all students.
             One of the most diverse campuses in the 109-campus California Community College System, LACC is located adjacent to the Central Los Angeles, Koreatown, Filipinotown and Little Armenia areas of the city. Classes are offered year-round at only $20 a unit and financial aid is available to students who qualify. For more information, visit or call 888.930.LACC.
