Talent Expansion in Science and Technology: an Urban Partnership

This National Science Foundation Grant links California State University, Fullerton with Santa Ana College and Mt. San Antonio College together in activities and initiatives that will produce more science, technology, engineering and math transfers to four-year institutions. You can be a part of it by joining in the activities and events happening now at SAC!

Participate in the Mentoring Program

Mentoring is available at SAC for Science Students! Speak with students and faculty who have already made the journey into graduate education in your field. They will be able to "tell it like it is" and give you a picture of the career options open to you as a SAC Science graduate.

Study "35 x 25"

Research has shown that you will retain more of what you study if you spread your study sessions out over time. Learn without cramming!

Supplemental Instruction (SI) Workshops

Introductory college courses in science and math can be challenging. SI is a learning enhancement program. SI is designed to organize and improve the ways in which you prepare for class outside of class-time. SI may be attached to your class section. These workshops will provide you with a systematic and disciplined approach for processing the subject material assigned by the professor. Supplemental instruction sessions are not remedial and are open to every student in your class. Ask your instructor if there is a SI workshop for your class.

Summer Research Project

Watch this space!

There are great opportunities for Science Students during the summer, including:

  • interning with local research laboratories
  • participation in university research projects
