Suisun Valley Review taking submissions for publication

It’s that time of year again! You know, where you submit to your favorite literary magazine: Suisun Valley Review!

Much like bears, squirrels, other woodland beasts, and tortoises, SVR’s editor committee takes a break about accepting and reviewing submissions until the spring. But with the arrival of Solano Community College’s spring semester, so comes the arrival of this year’s batch of editors! We’re all super jazzed to get to work on reviewing submissions, and are very likely to jump right into that in the following weeks. Until then, submit!

Submissions are open to anyone, SCC student or not!, until March 31st, 2013! For more information, please visit

ASSC Hosts Emergency Bone Marrow Drive

On October 3rd and 4th, from 10am to 2pm, the Asian American Donor Program will be holding a bone marrow donor drive on the Fairfield campus right outside the 1400 building. The drive, hosted by the Associated Students of Solano College, is to help a former SCC student with leukemia.

Asian-American donor matches are very difficult to make, so the bigger the turnout the more likely we are to find a match. We really need your help – you could be the one to save a life.
