Dr. JoAnna Schilling, President
Welcome to Cypress College! We have just completed our 50th anniversary celebration and are already looking ahead to the next 50 years as one of California’s premier community colleges. We are so happy that you have joined us.
Many of you are coming to college for the first time, and may even be the first in your family to attend college. Some of you may be returning to our college, or finding your way back after a long absence. We understand that this is big step and navigating your way as a college student while balancing your life, family, and finances can often feel intimidating. I want to assure you that not only have you made a good choice to attend Cypress College, but we are here to help you succeed. With 73 academic degrees and 176 certificate options to choose from, we are here to help you find a pathway best suited for your own academic and career goals.
Like many of you, I am also a new member of the campus community and am discovering a welcoming environment that is focused on achievement and success. I want to remind you that college success is a journey of self-discovery, underscored by deep learning and skills building. Learning may feel scary and uncomfortable at times, earmarked by moments of great discovery and enlightenment. Do not be afraid of the challenge; that’s how you know you are growing! | Read more.
