News Briefs – Nov. 8, 2019

Veteran’s Day

All day, Nov. 11

Campus will be closed for the day to honor veterans around the world.

College Representative Visit

Bastyr University and Seattle University

11 a.m.-1 p.m., Nov. 12; Rm. 5229

Anyone interested in either of these colleges is invited to meet with representatives from both institutions. They’ll (hopefully) be able to answer any of the questions you may have about the campus and student life.

Phlebotomy Certificate Information Meeting

2:30-3:30 p.m., Nov. 13; Health Occupations Building (Rm. 2305)

Interested in phlebotomy? For those who don’t know what the heck it is, phlebotomists are medically-trained professionals who draw blood via venipuncture — the process of collecting a small amount of blood.

If you’re not too scared of puncturing veins (like me) and foresee a possible career in this particular field at SCC, there will be a mandatory information session for potential phlebotomists.

The phlebotomy program operates under selective admission. For more information, check out the course page on the SCC website.

Medical Laboratory Technology Meeting

3:30-4:30 p.m, Nov. 13; Health Occupations Building (Rm. 2300)

SCC’s Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) program is a year-long course for students interested in a career in an MLT field. The course offers two options: An MLT Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences degree (AAAS), which is the full program with 90 credits, and an MLT Certificate, which is a smaller course load with 67 credits.

Anyone who’s intrigued can attend the mandatory MLT information meeting to learn more about these programs.

The MLT programs operate under selective admission. For more information, see the course page on the SCC website.

Students of Color Conference (SOCC) Information Sessions

1:30-2:30 p.m., Nov. 14; PUB (Rm. 9201)

1:30-2:30 p.m., Nov. 20

Two information sessions for the annual Students of Color Conference (SOCC) will be held for interested parties. Students are not required to attend both.

SOCC is a weekend-long conference held in Yakima, Washington, and is an opportunity for SCC and a number of other community and technical colleges in the state to come together and explore social and racial topics.

Neighborhood Community Meeting

6:30-8 p.m., Nov. 14; Quiet Dining Room

Feeling neighborly? Join the conversation regarding the local community. SCC will be hosting a meeting where people have the opportunity to voice their questions and concerns about the area surrounding campus.
