Points of Pride: Spring 2024

Many interesting, amazing, and noteworthy things happened across Seattle Colleges in the past several weeks. We've compiled this list spotlighting some (but not all) of those things in case you missed them. 

Culinary Creations and Community Connections at Seattle Central College

On Friday, February 16, Seattle Central College friends, family, and neighbors gathered for the college’s inaugural Community Dinner. A video released in April highlighted the event, which brought more than 175 guests together in the Broadway Edison Building Atrium for a meal prepared by the Seattle Culinary Academy.

When This Mascot Sings It's a Sign of Spring at North Seattle College

In late March a video segment about Pacific Tree Frogs and North Seattle College's mascot appeared on KING5 TV's Evening, a local magazine program. The segment featured the annual spring chorus of amphibians inhabiting the wetlands on North’s campus and showed how much students and employees love their mascot.

North Seattle College Library Grand Reopening

North Seattle College marked the completion of renovations at its library with a grand reopening event on April 18. Libraries are key to strong communities, so it's fitting the event took place during Community College Month.

We caught some of the sights and sounds from that day.


New Solar Panel Installation at South Seattle College

One April 23, the day after Earth Day, we joined South Seattle College in celebrating the installation of a new solar panel array on the roof of Cascade Hall. The collaborative effort involved South Seattle College, McKinstry, and Seattle City Light City Light and was funded through the Green Up Community Program.

West Seattle Blog covered the event and captured the program on video. Steve Abercrombie, faculty coordinator for South's BAS Sustainable Building Science Technology Program, was the first speaker.


A Little Ice Cream Fun While Promoting Running Start

We had a little fun asking folks involved with the production of our promotional video for Running Start about their favorite ice cream flavors. (It IS difficult to choose just one, isn't it?) See how they answered in the first video, and then watch the full promotional video now our on our Running Start webpages.
