Mesa College still has classes available this fall, and is also providing supplies, kits and equipment for nearly 20 academic programs to ensure that students succeed. Students taking science courses such as biology and zoology will have access to take-home microscopes and dissection kits, sewing machines are available for fashion classes, culinary will supply pots and pans, music students can receive guitars and keyboards, art classes will be offering pottery wheels and clay, and geology students can get rock and mineral reference sets.
“These are unprecedented times that require flexibility,” stated Dr. Pamela Luster, president. “If students were taking these courses on campus, they would have access to this equipment and these supplies, so in order to help them to succeed at home, we are providing these items for them.”
With the fall semester starting on Aug 17, San Diego Mesa College still has multiple classes with open seating, including art, culinary, math, music, dance, drama, English, multimedia, web development, veterinary technology, and political science, with several short-term courses starting in October.
