Campus Events: College Hour

Graphic which reads, "San Diego Miramar College: College Hour. One hour, everyday just for students!" The graphic includes an image of people walking around campus in front of the Student Services Building.

There's something for everyone from workshops and presentations to engagement activities and more! Find new interests, meet new friends, and get all the tips for a successful academic year!

There's more to college than just going to class. During College Hour, minimal classes are scheduled allowing students to attend various events and participate in all sorts of activities hosted by Miramar College's Academic and Career Pathway (ACP) programs and various Student Services departments and support programs. Some events are curated to specific audiences like STEM students, students seeking a transfer path to a four-year university, or students looking to brush up their interviewing skills as they prepare to enter the workforce, for example. Most College Hour activites, though, are general-interest and geared toward all members of our diverse campus community to enjoy.

College Hour:
Monday – Friday, 12:30 – 1:30 pm*

*Some times may vary. Check the Campus Calendar for full event details. College Hour events take place during the regular 16-week fall and spring semesters. Check the academic calendar for district closures.

Student organizations are encouraged to organize events during College Hour, too! Your club's faculty advisor can request your events and meetings be added to the Campus Calendar by contacting the Office of Student Affairs.

For college faculty and staff, Student Affairs may also assist you in advertising your non-credit/non-instructional events, lectures, etc. Contact your dean for more information and to request they enter your events into the Campus Calendar.
