"We areexcited to welcome our students and faculty back to campus this summer and fall," said Dr. Brenda Hellyer, San Jacinto College Chancellor. "We recognize this past year has been a challenge for everyone, and I express my deepest gratitude and thanks to our students, faculty, and staff who adapted and pivoted to ensure we were able to still provide the quality education and training that is expected of San Jacinto College. We continue to work hard to ensure our campuses and facilities remain safe as more people return, while still providing online options for those who choose that method. I can't wait to see our campuses alive with more people in the coming months."
