News and Events for the week of April 26

Good Monday Morning: 

This week is a busy one for your Sr. Staff. We are filming approximately 400 graduates all this week with our great Cinema-TV faculty and staff, walking across the “stage”, picking up their diplomas and taking a photo with either the President or Vice President. If you would like to volunteer to help us this week for an hour or two, please email Christine at: ESPINOLC@LACITYCOLLEGE.EDU and she will work with you on times and dates.  

Please note we will not have Staff or Student Town Halls this week due to the graduation filming. Our virtual graduation ceremony will take place on June 8 at 5pm. 

Spring Semester Update

We have just five weeks left in this term before final exams. We were able to retain 98% of the Spring 2020 headcount this year. It is great that students have stayed connected with us at this high level. We hope that continues through the summer and fall. Summer classes remain online. We are currently working on the fall schedule with classes both online and on campus. On campus classes are being scheduled at 50% classroom capacity with following social distancing guidelines. The schedule should be out by late May. 

Student Workshops

Our Life Skills Center is offering student workshops throughout the Spring 2021 semester. Workshops are held online every Tuesday from 12:30ipm – 1:30pm. Workshops can be accessed via Zoom at 929 3680 5171, for more information or questions please contact Joe Exnowski at 323.953.4000 ext. 224 or The next workshop on Tuesday, April 27 will focus on “The Keys to Developing Healthy Relationships and Successful Dating.”  

VAMA Artist Lecture Series

This Thursday, April 29, our Visual & Media Arts will host artist Mark McKnight in our VAMA Lecture Series beginning at 6pm. Mark McKnight's practice is an ongoing engagement with the craft and materials of “traditional” black and white photography. Through careful use of the fundamental tools of his medium he produces an embellished reality through bleak, darkly printed photographs that foreground his subjective, existential, and poetic concerns. Mark currently splits his time between Los Angeles and Albuquerque where he is an Assistant Professor at The University of New Mexico.
