The college’s mission

Get out of your carts

Get out of your carts

Cartoon By Maria Salvador   Sure, we have a 24-hour Sheriff’s Station on campus and we’ve seen cadets around a few times, but most of the time we find them riding through campus on their carts and sweeping by all too quickly.   What’s more, there are places where trouble could occur and those carts […]
