In an effort to reach more current and prospective students, the social media team at San Bernardino Valley College hosted two livestreams on Instagram and TikTok for the first time ever. “We need to go where the
youth goes and in today’s world, that’s online,” said Alexander Cabrera, a social media specialist at SBVC.

The livestreams were part of a series called “Get the Facts with Blue” and featured representatives from the SBVC Counseling and Outreach Departments, who answered audience questions throughout the live. The
livestreams reached over 1,200 viewers. Cabrera is looking forward to hosting a livestream at least once a month moving forward.

Professor Ed Gomez poses with Blue the Wolverine in front of some of the donations.

For ten years, the members of the SBVC Student California Teachers Association (SCTA) have coordinated a school supply drive on campus. As members of the club and future educators, they are learning of the need to support local teachers who put thousands of their dollars into their classrooms. SCTA Advisor and History Professor, Ed Gomez, said they received thousands of donations this year. As they do every year, SCTA drops off the donations to a local school of their choosing. SCTA has no plans to slow down as they’re currently planning their annual “New Clothing Item Drive” that also supports children from local schools. This drive will run from November 26 to December 10.
