On October 28, Mission College officially arrived in Sunland-Tujunga. Dr. Monte Perez made the announcement during the groundbreaking ceremony and introduced the dedicated people that made it happen after more than eight years of dialogue.
“On behalf of Los Angeles Mission College, as well as Assemblywoman Patty Lopez and the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council, I am pleased to announce that the Sunland-Tujunga Satellite Campus is officially here,” he said as he brought those responsible for the satellite campus up to the front of the new campus where they were formally introduced.
“This groundbreaking formally marks the beginning of our efforts to serve the Sunland-Tujunga community by providing relevant, highquality credit and non-credit course offerings in a modern, high-tech facility that includes SMART learning environments.”
“We look forward to officially opening our doors on the first day of the spring 2017 semester,” Perez continued. “The Sunland-Tujunga campus will also serve the communities of Sun Valley and Lake View Terrace, and will provide course offerings based on feedback from these communities. I want to personally thank you today on what is a momentous occasion, not only for Los Angeles Mission College, but the entire L.A. Community College District.”
