As another year of living through the COVID-19 pandemic comes to a close, City College continues to inch closer to a large-scale return to campus. 

In an interview with City Times at the Dec. 8 Fall Fest event, City College President Ricky Shabazz said that hybrid education is here to stay, even as slightly over 50% of classes will return to in-person instruction in the spring. That’s up from just under 20% this semester.

We at City Times have spent the past 21 months striving to keep our audience informed about everything from the effect of the pandemic on local businesses, the new stadium being built for SDSU athletics and the San Diego Community College District’s choice of a new chancellor. Read a roundup of the year’s top trafficked stories here.

But journalism exists to empower its audience, and with campus gradually coming back to life, the need for input from students becomes ever more important.

So … what would you like to read about? What do you think your fellow students should know about? What information would help you be a better informed and prepared student? Let us know about your concerns, questions or frustrations. 

Or maybe you have had a unique experience that the City College community should hear about. We want to hear because we want to help.
