This Week @ City - September 11, 2023

September 11, 2023


Today marks the 22nd anniversary of the attacks on our homeland that claimed nearly 3,000 lives at the World Trade Center, Shanksville, Pa., and the Pentagon. On the anniversary of 9/11, we should all take time today to remember those who lost their lives and the friends and loved ones left behind. Today, join together to remember and honor them.

Last Thursday, August 31,  was the opening reception of the VAMA Manners: A Faculty Exhibition at the VAMA Gallery  in DaVinci Hall. The exhibition will run through September 21, 2023.

Also last Thursday, August 31, LACC hosted “Demo Day,” the final day of LACC’s Summer Emerging Tech Bootcamp. Two teams comprised of 14 LACC students  presented their final pitches to a panel of judges. The students for the past 10 weeks have been working with 2 industry coaches from JPL to solve space mission challenges. For the first 6 weeks, industry speakers were brought in from AWS, Slalom, UCLA and JPL to present current industry topics such as UI/UX, How to Pitch, Project Management and Professional Development.

TimelyCare, a virtual health provider, is now available to students providing FREE 24/7 mental health support and basic needs assistance. Students can login at the TimelyCare app or can sign up via timelycare.com/lacitycollege. Please let your students know.

Athletics is back in the swing of things for the 2023-24 season. The season is underway for our Women's Soccer, Women's Volleyball, and Men's Soccer teams.
