¡Palabra!: Gentrification

Gentrification: The process of renewal and reconstruction that accompanies the influx of middle and upper class residents. Gentrification often displaces poorer residents because they can no longer afford to pay rent, eat, and live in gentrified areas.

Irrigation Repair

Santa Fe Community College will be repairing irrigation lines at the central roundabout (the drop-off area by the flag poles) Monday, April 23 through Monday, April 30. During repairs, the roundabout will not be accessible. Please use other entrances into the main and West Wing parking lots. No parking areas will be affected. Please use caution when walking or driving in the vicinity. Thank you for your patience while we make improvements to campus.
