Advisers will help you complete your financial aid application for free. Take advantage of this opportunity, especially for those who are counting every penny.


With finals fast approaching, it might be helpful to take some time and de-stress yourself. Have no fear: SCC provides a series of events intended to do just that.

11 a.m-1 p.m., Dec. 6, PUB Lobby
If you’re looking for some free food, you can swing by the PUB’s lobby. You might even get to talk to some former SCC students, as the event is hosted by Alumni & Friends. Ask them questions about life.

Guided Meditation: Sound Bath and Breathing Exercises
2-3 p.m., Dec. 6, Greenhouse (located between the 2400 and 2700 buildings)

Did you even know there was a greenhouse on campus? Well, there is, and it’s the perfect place for you can take a break from all the distraction. Bring a mat or blanket for ground seating.

Main BREATHE Event
9 a.m.-4 p.m., Dec. 7, FOSS Building, Room 5245 (Counseling Center)
The grandaddy of the week’s BREATHE events, there will a wide variety of activities for students all day. Some cool things to do there: play board games, craft jewelry and make some stress socks. We don’t know exactly what a stress sock is, but it sounds interesting.

Popcorn, Puzzles and Coloring
10 a.m.-2 p.m., Dec. 7, FOSS Building, Room 5229
Pretty self-explanatory for this one. We hope that they have good ol’ fashioned movie theater butter.

Be Safe, BeDazzle
1-3 p.m., Dec. 7, PUB, Room 9202
If you find yourself walking in the dark often, especially in the winter months, you may want to be as visible as possible for safety reasons. But why not have fun with it, along with folks from International Education? Bring any items you want BeDazzled, if not — they have some options for you to choose from.

Meet Logan!
1:30-1:50 p.m. & 2:10-2:30 p.m., Dec. 7, FOSS Building, Room 5245
SCC’s President Dr. Cheryl Roberts and her trained therapy dog will be available to meet with students. Stop by and snuggle with Logan. Who doesn’t love golden retrievers?

You’re free, it’s finally over. You know, except for finals. But that’s future you’s problem, amirite?

Prep Day

Grades Available

Dec. 20
We’re so happy for you guys. Sorry, that might seem weird if you don’t know that we can see the future. You did great. Also, don’t worry about the redhead in the feather boa holding the knife. She’s actually a very nice person.

Christmas Day

Dec. 25
Campus is closed. So, instead of wandering around aimlessly waiting for school to start up again, spend some time with your family. Or with friends, the family you get to choose. Even if you don’t celebrate, it’s still a nice excuse. Go get some Chinese food. Chinese food is delicious. Yeah, it’s a stereotype, but it’s a delicious one.

New Year’s Day

 Jan. 1
Campus is closed again. Go have more Chinese food. Or work on your list of New Year’s resolutions for 2018. Here’s one for you: read the Ebbtide. We’re just kidding. You don’t need a resolution for something you already do.

First Day of Winter Quarter

Jan. 8
We’re back, baby! Get psyched, cuz we’re pretty sure it’s about to be your best quarter yet.

Last Day for 100 Percent Refund/Schedule Changes Online

A week is far too little time to really get the full measure of a class. But if you’re already drowning under your workload, we’d say it might be time to get your money back.

First Ebbtide of Winter Quarter

Jan. 19
Don’t judge us too harshly, we’re still recovering from break. We’re just kidding, it’s gonna be awesome.
