Regarding his studies at Citrus College, Leo appreciates the focus on student participation and positive interaction with professors that work together to improve his overall collegiate experience.
This month the ISC teamed up with the Arts department to hold a concert. We rearranged the lounge to focus attention on the performance area and student performers set a stage with amplifiers, microphones, and instruments including a drum kit, electric guitar and bass, and keyboard. As the artists took the stage, we were treated to a broad range of musical genres. Patrons heard musical styles including jazz, opera, pop, and rock performed by “The Labradours”, “Annie”, “Heejin Son”, “Blue Mason”, and “Max Lual” respectively. In addition to the musical arts, students enjoyed pie and coffee provided by Pacific Dinning. We had a blast and can’t wait to see everyone at the next event “Holiday Karaoke” in December.
The Citrus College Honors Transfer Program is designed to increase the available opportunities for highly motivated students.

Getting in may not be the easiest task with requirements such as a minimum 3.25 GPA and essay submission, but the benefits are plentiful. Benefits include priority registration, small classes, TAP (Transfer Alliance Program) membership, and access to Phi Theta Kappa and Alpha Gamma Sigma honor society memberships.

The Citrus College Career and Transfer Center hosts many fantastic workshops and events.
