Black Student Success Week is April 25-29

Black Student Success Week invites employees from across the California Community College system to examine the resources and programs that support Black student success. This year’s theme is “A Vision for Black Student Success: Creating a New Landscape to Succeed.” The 2022 Black Student Success Week will focus on new approaches to ensure Black and African American students succeed at California Community Colleges as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Sexual assault, also known as sexual violence, is one of the most serious, pervasive, yet underreported crimes in the world. According to the CDC, more than 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have or will experience sexual violence during their lifetimes, yet only 12% of victims report the incident to the authorities.

Wednesday, April 27 has been designated Denim Day to raise awareness and support for survivors of sexual violence. For information about the history and observance of Denim Day, please visit

Wear denim Wednesday to show support to survivors of sexual assault. Join WEAVE at the ARC main campus in front of the library from 1:00 to 3:00 pm to write supportive messages to survivors and learn about WEAVE resources.

Los Rios' WEAVE Confidential Advocate is available to confidentially support or provide information to students or employees who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, or sexual harassment. For more information, go to:

Revision to Enrollment Process

Students who take in-person classes or access on-campus services must be fully vaccinated for COVID19 or have an approved exemption on file. As part of our efforts to help reduce barriers for students to enroll in our colleges, Los Rios has revised the enrollment process for in-person classes to allow all students to enroll in in-person classes and provide proof of vaccination (or an approved exemption) prior to the start of classes. This change will take effect starting in Summer 2022, and any student who is not cleared two weeks before the start of the term will be dropped from their in-person classes.

This change will help more students get the classes they need and make progress on their academic goals, while still ensuring that our campuses are healthy and safe for all students, faculty, and staff.

The Importance of Being Earnest

By Oscar Wilde • Directed by Pam Downs

  • Live: Friday, April 29 through Sunday, May 1 at ARC's Mainstage Theatre
  • Friday/Saturday at 7:30 pm • Sunday at 2:00 pm
  • Streaming: Friday, May 6 through Sunday, May 8


Oscar Wilde’s madcap farce about mistaken identities, secret engagements, and lovers’ entanglements has been a theatre staple since it first hit the scene in the 1890s—and now it has finally come to ARC! Full of eccentric characters (in gorgeous costumes), preposterous situations, and rapid fire wit, Earnest is also known for its full-scale skewering of Victorian hypocrisy and social hierarchies. Don't miss your opportunity to see the play considered to be Wilde’s masterpiece!


Tickets (live and streaming) $10 at
