ISC Activities

Halloween is a special time of year in the U.S. It is a time when we celebrate the spookier side of life by decorating our homes with witches and ghouls, wear elaborate costumes, and visit haunted houses for a good scare. In the ISC, we host a Halloween Party with a scary movie marathon, food, and games. This year we have a special new edition known as “Box Battle”, which allows students to tap into their ingenuity and create something unique from our supply of cardboard and then break it all apart again. We expect to see everyone there. Also, don’t forget your costume! We have a selection of costumes available for current ISC students to borrow over the Holiday weekend.

Student Resources - Writing Center

Citrus College has many resources dedicated to student success. The writing center is open to all Citrus College students and promotes success in completing assignments accurately and on time. Writing center staff provide guidance in a casual and comfortable space for students to improve their skills and, as a result, produce better results on assignments. Furthermore, services are not limited to correcting writing errors in essays. The writing Center also teaches strategies for note taking, reading comprehension, and composing lab reports. Located in the Learning Center, the Writing Center is a must visit office. Best of all, it’s free!
