Save a City College class!

Eight hundred City College classes are being cancelled during the next school year due to the California budget disaster and the generally crappy economy, but you can save a class and have it named after you by donating $6000 to the school.

Just find the cancelled classes in their online schedule — the Music Department, for example, looks like this, with the cancelled classes highlighted in red:

As a late Father’s Day present, how about choosing something your Dad loves, and naming a City College class in the subject after him? For example, The A.E. Pritchard class in electric organ. (I don’t think they have a class in electric organ, but you get the idea.) Does the $6000 sound a little pricy in this economy? How about getting your friends to chip in? Maybe your writing group would like to sponsor a “Basic Writing” class. Because it’s time to stop making fun of people who can’t write and do something about it.

    While I support City College 100% and take a class there almost every semester, I think you’re mistaken. The red in the catalogue usually means just week night and weekend classes. Those are the only ones I can take because I work full-time. Regardless, people should still help save the classes that they are planning on canceling.

    Look closely at the highlighted lines and you can see, in place of the name of the instructor, it says CANCELLED.
