Dear friend:

On behalf of all of my colleagues at Pasadena City College: Welcome to our college!

We’re very glad that you have decided to learn more about our institution. For more than 90 years, we have been proud to provide the residents of the San Gabriel Valley an atmosphere of personal growth and learning that challenges our students to achieve their best. 

PCC is a place of constant activity and exploration. I encourage you to familiarize yourself with our programs and educational offerings, keeping an open mind about what might help you advance your interests. An education is one of the most valuable investments you can make, and my colleagues and I at PCC aim to give everyone who visits an opportunity to realize these benefits. For these and other reasons, your life at PCC is sure to be an exciting one.

As you learn more about us, please remember that our faculty, counselors, and administrators are here to help you. If you need to learn more about financial aid, or brush up on your math skills, or find a club or organization to pursue something new, I encourage you to browse our website, reach out, and — above all else — ask for advice. We are all committed to seeing you succeed.

I hope you enjoy your time at PCC. I wish you all the best in your academic pursuits, and I look forward to seeing you around campus.

Onward Lancers!

Yours sincerely,
Signature of Dr. Rajen Vurdien
