Seahawk Student eNews - eNewsletters

Congratulations on completing your first month at Cabrillo College for the fall semester!


I hope you have had a great first month of school and that you are doing well in all your classes.  This e-newsletter is to inform you about events that the Student Senate, active clubs and Cabrillo College will be holding the month of October. We'll be kicking off our Second Annual Harvest Food Drive, during which all of the canned and non-perishable goods we collect and money we raise will go directly to Second Harvest Food Bank. We are looking forward to Cabrillo's Halloween event, which includes an awesome costume contest. We will also be advocating on current student concerns, such as availability and quality of food on campus and study locations for students after 8pm and on weekends.


Get Involved! The Student Senate has openings for students that are interested in representing Cabrillo College students. There are also a multitude of clubs you can join, sporting events to see, and other events coming up soon.


Have a great October and good luck in your classes!

Cabrillo Faculty Member Book Signing at Cabrillo Bookstore, Weds. Oct. 22nd, 4:30 - 5:00 p.m.

"In a society that often views motherhood as both the ultimate achievement and an inevitability for women, what does it mean to be infertile or involuntarily childless and ambivalent about it? In Not Trying: Infertility, Childlessness, and Ambivalence (Vanderbilt University Press, September 8, 2014), Kristin J. Wilson examines this question, interviewing women from a range of social backgrounds to explore the deep ambivalence they feel toward both motherhood and non-motherhood and the ways it shapes their identities."
