Classes may be cut!

The administration is eyeing our classes carefully, and there is a real danger that some of our drama classes could get cut. 

The two-week add/drop period is going away, so if you wait until next week the class you want may be gone. The classes that are in jeopardy are:


  • DRAM 103, Acting for the Non-Major, T/Th 11:10 - 12:35 taught by Lisa Berger
  • DRAM 105, Introduction to Dramatic Arts, online, 8/21 - 10/14, taught by Ashley Kobza
  • DRAM 108, Playwriting, M/W 9:35 - 11:00 for three weeks, then entirely online, taught by Matthew Salazar Thompson
  • DRAM 109, Theatre and Social Issues, T/Th, 11:10 - 12:35, taught by Katie Rodda
  • DRAM 134, Beginning Voice for Actors, M/W 12:45- 2:10, taught by Annie Hinton
  • DRAM 143, Beginning Costuming, T/Th, 12:45 - 3:55, taught by Elisa Benzoni


105 and 109 fulfill Area 3 (IGETC and CSU) for transfer.
134 is required for Drama majors.
143 articulates (course-to-course transfer to SDSU).

So please don't wait to enroll. Tell your friends. It's crunch time, y'all!

Dance classes at City

There are a few dance classes that still have room in them. If you've never taken a dance class, now is the time to change that! Go to http://schedule.sdccd.edu/index.cfm?action=search_class to see what classes are still open. 

Please don't delay on signing up--the administrators are getting ready to CUT any classes that don't have high enrollments.
