That jolly red-suited man is still sacking up gifts for his seasonal deliveries. And, current and potential students can still take advantage of Del Mar College’s Holiday Registration Event at all three campuses this Wednesday, Dec. 6, with extended services hours until 7 p.m. to “sack the stress” by not waiting until after the holiday hustle to complete the admissions process, apply for financial aid or register for Spring 2024 credit courses, which begin Jan. 16.

Individuals can access Student Services and get registered at the Heritage Campus (Harvin Student Center, 101 Baldwin Blvd., 78404), Windward Campus (Coleman Center, 4101 Old Brownsville Rd., 78405) and Oso Creek Campus (Main Central Building, 7002 Yorktown Blvd., 78414). Get online directions and campus maps. Participants can even receive some goodies as part of the holiday cheer!

Additionally, don’t just take advantage of early in-person registration on Dec. 6.

The Art and Drama Department is extending their gallery hours until 7 p.m. the last day of the fall art exhibit, “Now Let Us Shift,” located in the Joseph A. Cain Memorial Art Gallery in the Heritage Campus Fine Arts Center. The show features works of 20 artists inspired by the late Chicana activist Gloria E. Anzaldúa (1942-2004) with stirring paintings of borderland landscapes to thought-provoking mixed-media installations. This one-of-a-kind exhibit represents diverse artwork in dialogue with Anzaldúa’s writings about the U.S.-Mexico border. Call 361-698-1216 or email art@delmar.edu for more details.

Going to the Oso Creek Campus to register? Then join the Architectural/Drafting Technology Program while  there to see the Winter Exhibit comprised of student projects located on the first floor of the STEM Building. Campus and general community members are invited to celebrate the design work of DMC students from 5:30 to 7 p.m. as they receive awards and discuss one-on-one their projects. For more details, call 361-698-1757 or email lwright15@delmar.edu.
