City College Times

Jasper Somera
This course places you in a professional workplace setting where you and your peers get to share ideas and interests, write for a continually award-winning college newspaper, research topics that genuinely interest you and get pushed out of your comfort zone to be more involved with your community.

In the short time I have been editor-in-chief, I have learned several valuable life skills.

These include:

  • Being organized

  • Meeting deadlines instead of procrastinating

  • Professionalism as a worker and student

  • How to be prepared

  • Setting up appointments with interviewees

  • How to work with a team efficiently to create the best possible product


The City College Times challenges its staff to be the best of themselves that they can be. As a result, you end up becoming a much more mature version of yourself.

I suggest taking this course to every SJCC student regardless of their major because the value of what you get out of the class is much more than what it costs.
