111On April 26th 2014, in collaboration with Clear Channel Radio Station Wild 94.9 and Serramonte Mall, Skyline College hosted its first “Serramonte High School Invasion” at Serramonte Mall in Daly City. The goal of the event was to allow high schools students to see the innovative programs that Skyline College has to offer while rocking out to the Bay Area’s number #1 hit music station. Radio personality Nessa and Outreach Coordinator Florentino Ubungen co-hosted the event and gave out prizes throughout the day. Students were given passports upon arrival and were entered into the drawing after receiving stamps from eight program tables. The prizes included ten, $100 gifts; a David Lee signed basketball and a PS4. The grand prize was Wild 94.9 would throw a mixer at the high school with the most student attendance.

222The event was a great success with over two hundred high school students participating in the drawing. Representatives from various departments and programs at the college made invaluable connections with future Skyline College students! This was a great event for the college that benefitted the community at large. Special thanks to the Office of Marketing, Communications and Public Relations and Outreach for coordinating this innovative event and thanks to all the programs/departments that participated.
