SFCC – In This Together, Join Me & SGA President Ian Martinez for a Virtual Meeting April 9 – SFCC President Update for Students March 30

Dear Students,

Thank you for your patience and perseverance through our current health emergency and for continuing to pursue your studies during this challenging time. I am sure you may have questions or concerns. We’re here to help!

We know that it’s hard not to see your classmates, teachers, and friends in person. That’s why we’d love for you to keep connected.

Join the conversation. We have created a special Facebook group, SFCC – In This Together, where our community can share photos, videos, links, and questions. Participate in (or eavesdrop) on the great discussions; many are healing, cathartic, and can bring a smile. Invite your classmates and friends to join the conversation – all voices are welcome.

Please take a moment to capture a selfie or film a short selfie video on how you are adapting to online classes. Share an inspiring message or a life hack that is helping you complete your courses. If you send a photo, include a short caption. Please keep your video to less than 60 seconds. Send your photos and videos to or upload your content directly to the SFCC – In This Together page.

We’d love to share your messages on our social media channels.

We’ve seen some great homemade workout videos from SFCC fitness instructor Herman Garcia and others posted on our Facebook SFCC – In This Together  page.

Be sure to check your SFCC email frequently as we continue to keep you informed.


On Thursday, April 9, at 11 a.m., please join Student Government Association President Ian Martinez and me for a virtual Student Conversation on Microsoft Teams.

It’s easy to join: Log in to MySFCC > Under Applications, click on Office 365 > Click on the Teams icon. Or,  tune in here. You should be able to join the meeting. Be sure to mute your microphone except when speaking. If there’s an issue, please contact the Office of Information Technology at 505-428-1222.

Please submit your questions and concerns in advance to or to Associate Vice President for Student Success, Thomasinia Ortiz-Gallegos at

While we want you to keep up with your studies, remember to take breaks and to get some exercise. Stay healthy and safe.
