School is definitely open on Saturdays at Hartnell College for the next few weekends. That is when faculty, staff, and student groups will be on hand to help students register for classes from morning until night. On Saturday, June 7, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the Registration Rally will be at the King City Education Center, and on Saturday, June 14, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the party moves to the main campus in Salinas.
Registration Rally is a new approach to registering for classes. It is a one-stop shop for becoming a student, with everything anyone would need to sign up for classes, apply for financial aid, learn about academic assistance programs, get advice from an academic adviser, take assessment tests, buy books and supplies, get library privileges, and buy parking permits.
It is also a party, a big party for current students, future students, family members, friends, and those who are even a little bit curious about Hartnell. There will be DJs from your favorite radio stations, musical and dance groups, student clubs, food, family activities and games, and door prizes.
“This year, we have been taking a very student-centered approach to everything we do, trying to make it much easier for everyone-especially newcomers who have never found it convenient to take a class before-to get their questions answered and sign up for a class or two . . . or five,” says Director of Student Enrollment Mary Dominguez.
Students may sign up for summer and fall classes at the rallies. Bilingual services will be available.
