On May 19th, 2023 at 4:00pm we will be holding Lavender Graduation for our LGBTQIA2S+ SRJC Students who are receiving degrees, certificate(s), GED or transferring without a degree! There will be a mini reception ceremony, food, and music. Graduates will receive a rainbow sash! This celebration is free.
First time hearing about Lavender Graduation? Dr. Ronni Sanlo, a Jewish Lesbian created Lavender Graduation because she was denied attending her own children's graduation due to her sexual orientation. In the year 1995 Dr. Ronni Sanlo teamed up with Michigan State University and created the first ever Graduation that recognizes LGBTQIA2S+ Graduates, which is now celebrated on many campuses. Our LGBTQIA2S+ Graduates deserve to be recognized, click here to RSVP or Scan on the QR Code. Students please make sure to register by May 8, 2023 and click on the Graduate RSVP . Attendees register by May, 10, 2023.
The very successful Santa Rosa Junior College Rugby program is set for a return on campus this Spring Semester. After a two-year hiatus, because of the Covid Pandemic, the intercollegiate team is looking for a renewed presence in the Northern California Collegiate Rugby Conference. SRJC Rugby is looking for anyone interested in learning and competing at a high level in the game of rugby. Having not been on campus for the past two years, the team is looking forward to fielding a team in both rugby union (15 players a side) and the Olympic form of the game, 7 a side rugby. SRJC Rugby will be competing at the collegiate division 2 level, because of some changes to eligibility standards recently enacted by USA Rugby and Collegiate Rugby. We will no longer be competing at the small college level.
SRJC Rugby has always competed at a high level after being formed in 1998. SRJC has been ranked as high as 4th nationally on two occasions in the past. Traditionally, it has played in the Northern California Collegiate Rugby Conference. The 7’s season will begin in March this spring and the 15’s season is ending soon, but the JC team should be able to find a few matches depending on the number of players the team is able to attract.
The coaches would like to meet prospective players in an organizational meeting in the very near future. They are working to reserve a room on campus where the meeting can be held. The coaches can be reached by phone at (707) 236-2160 or by email at WrenRugby4@comcast.net. Steve Wren and Waisea Kauvesi , who have coached the team for the past several years are hoping to have a large turnout of potential players. Practices have typically been held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:30 on campus. Games are typically on Saturdays. If you are interested in playing rugby at SRJC, please contact the coaches as soon as possible.
Information on when and where the organizational meeting is to be held will be announced soon.
