Please contact Nicole Smith at nicole@hostileterrain94.com or Ranmalee Perera  at rperera@noce.edu if you or your class is interested in participating and to schedule a time.

About

As of today, we have record of 3,116 people who have died, largely from dehydration and hyperthermia, while attempting this journey through Arizona. For this exhibition, we are asking volunteers to hand-write the toe tags of each body recovered from the Arizona/Mexico border. We will then construct a wall map of the border, onto which the tags will be placed in the exact location the individuals were found.

Student, Faculty, and Community Participation

Tables will be set up in the lobby of the Cypress College Theater. Volunteers fill out tags under the guidance of Director, Dr. Jason De León.

Walk-ins welcome although for a large group a scheduled time slot is highly recommended.

Classes Still Available for Fall 2018

Fall semester classes start Monday, August 20, but classes are still available and you can register without an add code until Sunday, August 19, at 11:59 p.m.

We invite you to look at the open class list online. There are still a number of classes available that may fit your needs, and closed classes may have a waitlist option available.

If you are on a waitlist, please remember that waitlists expire at midnight on the day the class begins. That means that on the first day a class meets, there’s no longer a waitlist. Instead, the list is included in priority order on the instructor’s roster as a tool to help faculty with the petition process. So, if you’re on a waitlist, you’ll need to attend the first class meeting in hopes of obtaining an add code.

Register for classes by:

  • Logging into myGateway and clicking on “Add or Drop Classes” in Registration Tools; or
  • Stopping by the Counseling Center on the 2nd floor of the Student Center (Building 19) for help selecting classes that fit into your student educational plan.
