Students can now take Pasadena City College classes in Rosemead. Located at the former Rosemead Adult School, the new Rosemead PCC branch celebrated its grand opening on Oct. 21, China Press (侨报) reports.
The Rosemead branch — which includes 13 classrooms, 7 offices, and a conference room, study room, and computer lab — has opened its doors to more than 860 students and 67 classes. Offering more of PCC's popular classes such as math and English, the new space makes it easier for students to register and complete their required coursework, assistant director of PCC's International Student Office Amy Yan told China Press.
The branch will also stimulate local economic development, said Rosemead Mayor Polly Low. Low attended the opening ceremony in Rosemead along with California Assemblyman Ed Chau, Rosemead Mayor Polly Low, and PCC Vice President Rob Oehler.
