A note from Jennifer Chen, A.S. President
Welcome to SMC! Did you know that SMC offers a variety of classes from academic to professional, and many classes you can take just for fun, related to your interests? It's definitely a great idea to take an extra class in addition to your required classes to have time to relax and enjoy your passions. I am going to take a yoga class this fall, would anyone like to join me? :)
A note from Chase Matthews, Student Trustee
Enrolling into Santa Monica College has provided countless opportunities that have transformed my life. Not only have I grown academically, but personally and professionally as well. As a student, I have been exposed to intriguing coursework taught by top-notch professors. As the Student Trustee, I am forever grateful for the amazing leadership opportunities SMC has provided. I look forward to meeting you personally in a class or two this fall!
