May 2014

Dear Alumni and Friends,
As the spring semester rolls toward the finish line, we are gearing up for our 2nd annual SMC Everywhere celebration on May 22nd to celebrate all SMC students that are getting ready to transfer and/or complete their certificate programs at SMC! Join us along with the Associated Students, Young Alumni, and other representatives of the Santa Monica Alumni Association as we take SMC's beautiful Quad by storm with a fun-filled event to celebrate their achievements.

In our Alumni Spotlight, award winning stylist Benita Sims reaches back with a letter of thanks to SMC and instructor John Rogers. Also, check out the professional recognition awards that SMC Film students have received.

We've recently activated our SMC Alumni Network online! Create your account today! Want to get involved with the SMC Alumni Association? Apply for a position on the alumni council.

Be sure to share through all of your social networks, and remember we look forward to hearing back from you and getting updates on your whereabouts.   


As always, Proud to be SMC!

SMC Everywhere 2014
2nd Annual Transfer Celebration on the Quad

Join us in congratulating our students as they move on to the next phase of their academic and professional journeys. With entertainment, challenges, food and prizes, we'll not only celebrate our students that are about to transfer and complete their certificate programs,  we'll engage our current students to set their sights on where they want to go when they leave SMC. SMC Everywhere takes place May 22. 
Your Presence Matters!
Apply for a Position on the Alumni Council.

The SMC Alumni Council provides leadership to realize the vision that any time an SMC student leaves Santa Monica College and arrives in their transfer destination they are received by an SMC Alum. Whether they transfer to a four-year college, complete a program and enter the workforce, or return to home outside of Santa Monica, we are activating the network to receive them. Learn more about our pilot chapter at UCLA. Fill out our Alumni volunteer form to get involved.
