Starting the 'college experience' at a community college is a very good decision during normal economic times, but it is an even better decision during today's recession when UC and CSU have cut enrollment while increasing fees. If the student is not sure of a major, DVC can provide counsel on possible majors and potential four year colleges. Students should take advantage of the opportunities while available.

I just want to say thanks to both Jim and Jeff for their support of the College in San Ramon. We are fortunate to enjoy a very positive relationship with the city and overall communities in the SR Valley.

SRC is a fun and good college experience. I started taking classes there in high school, and now I'm full-time completing my general ed for transfer. It's a great asset to consider and I recommend it to anybody hasn't chosen a 4 year university or hasn't decided on his or her major straight out of high school. it's a great investment for the future and totally worth it. no pun intended.
