Message from Interim College President Jennifer Hughes
Welcome to Cañada College! I am pleased that you have chosen Cañada College to pursue your educational goals and career aspirations.
Students come to Cañada for many different reasons. Some students are planning to obtain degrees or certificates. Others plan to transfer to four year institutions. And still others, wish to upgrade their job skills or take courses for their own personal enrichment. Whatever your goal, we are here to help you achieve it. We value who you are as a person and the life experiences and personal background that you bring to our College. While here, you will have the opportunity to expand your knowledge, learn new skills, and make lasting connections with faculty, staff, and fellow students.
At Cañada College, you will find a welcoming and collegiate environment. You will be taught by an outstanding and dedicated faculty, many of whom are nationally recognized in their fields. Equally important, you will be supported by an exemplary staff who is committed to ensuring that you have the appropriate support to be successful. We know the impact that a college education can have on your life and, collectively, we are focused on your success!
Your educational experience will be enriched if you engage in co-curricular activities, including student government, intercollegiate athletics, student clubs, honors societies, and by participating in special programs that support your academic and career goals. Part of a college experience is becoming involved both in and outside of class. You'll find that these co-curricular experiences will allow you to get to know other students with whom you can share and exchange ideas. Use this time to get to know your instructors and visit them during their office hours if you have any questions or need additional help.
I am honored to be a part of the caring Cañada family who stands ready to help you reach your goals and fulfill your dreams. We are happy to support you along your academic journey. From here, you can go anywhere!
