Name: Key of Knowledge Winners
Country: Vietnam & Luxembourg
Major: Various Majors

The Citrus College key of knowledge is a prestigious award presented to only 10 students performing at the top of their class each year. This year, the ISC is proud to congratulate not one, but two ISC students for achieving academic success deserving of the honor.

Both An Nguyen and Angele Yehe Zheng are excellent scholars that the ISC is proud to have. An is a Chemistry major from Vietnam and is currently choosing between UC Berkeley, UCLA, UCSD, UCI and Cal Poly Pomona for next year. Angele is a Humanities major from Luxembourg in Central Europe.

Congratulations to the both of you on your outstanding achievement.

ISC Activities

Based on guidelines from the state of California, Citrus College is still experiencing closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the ISC is still here for you. We are answering emails and phone calls (remote line: 909-929-1746) every weekday. Call or email us with any questions or concerns you may have. You are not alone during this difficult time. We are currently scheduled to begin returning to campus mid-June. Please continue to monitor for all current updates regarding COVID-19 and the campus closure. 
We would like to thank all ISC students for staying strong and getting through this unprecedented global crisis together.

Summer is Online

As stated previously, summer session will be completely online this year as a result of COVID-19. Citrus College has made this decision based on guidelines from the state of California. This decision has been made for the benefit of public health and safety. Citrus College is dedicated to the health and safety of its students and surrounding community and will continue to take every precaution to ensure that when we all are able to return to campus that students, staff, and the surrounding community can rest assured that their wellbeing is our top priority.
If you plan to take summer courses, registration begins May 11. Despite COVID-19 causing us to remain off campus, Citrus College still offers an excellent selection of summer courses. 
Do not miss out!
