Thanks to Everyone! ~ Wrap-up of Campus Life Activities This Week

7 December 2017

Due to your support this week we:

  • Donated 110 items to the Alameda Food Bank
  • Had 33 people attend to see the comedian
  • Made 12 tie blankets in 2 days that were distributed to those immediately around our community and to the Berkeley Food and Housing Project
  • Already have 200 people who have voted for ASBCC president (having only been open for 7 days. For context, last year we had 229 with more than 4 weeks to vote)

It has been a great semester!

Good luck as you wrap up the year and take advantage of the break ahead to come back renewed and energized for the new year.

Below are some pictures from our week of events – enjoy!

Ara Jo Zine Library Dedication and Memorial – Nov. 29 @ College Hour, Atrium

28 November 2017

Event: Ara Jo zine library dedication and memorial for those lost in the GhostShip fire

Time/Location: Wednesday, November 29th 12:15-1:30 pm, Atrium

Ara Jo, who passed in the GhostShip fire one year ago, was a driving force in the East Bay zine* scene and in bringing zines to Berkeley City College.  She not only helped to coordinate several years of the annual East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest, which was held at BCC from 2010-2015, but also acted as resident zinester on campus.  Ara Jo brought zines into classrooms and taught students skills related to self-publication.  

Berkeley City College library is dedicating the zine collection to Ara Jo to recognize her contributions to campus and community in a ceremony on Wednesday, November 29th in the atrium during college hour (12:15 – 1:30).

Please join librarians, zinesters who have collaborated with Ara, and Ara’s friends to celebrate her life and legacy.  If you like, you can bring supplies for an altar to all victims of the GhostShip fire.  Following the dedication, the altar will be placed in Berkeley City College library.  

Zine donations will also be accepted.

Learn more about Ara Jo’s life and influence.


*What is a zine?  It’s a self-published, small run publication that can cover basically any topic – from the deeply personally to the proselytizing political to DIY and more.  BCC’s zine collection is organized to fit with topics covered in BCC courses.
