Fall Semester In Review:
Campus Highlights in Pictures

In early October, Mission College and the Community Literacy Academy hosted hundreds of children and their parents at the Festival of Readers. Focus was on getting children to read more...and on convincing parents of the importance of reading to their kids.

Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchú Tum returned to Mission College, noting that her visit last year ended early due to illness. She urged students to dedicate themselves to helping others. Instructor John Morales was among those at the book signing.

It’s an annual treat for employees when children from the Campus Child Development Center come trick-or-treating. Student worker Jessica Araujo handed out goodies at the EOP&S office window.

Mission College students got answers to their questions about four-year colleges and universities at the annual Transfer Fair. Representatives from more than 20 colleges attended.

In November, the student group MECHA sponsored its annual remembrance of the dead. Guest speaker Rosi Emma Amaya explained traditions of Dia de Los Muertos, including altar ceremony.

Mission College honored vets who have served in conflicts from World War II to the Iraqi War at its annual Veterans Day Ceremony. Assemblymember Cindy Montañez was a featured guest.
