Cosumnes River College
Consumnes River College (CRC), a member of the Los Rios Community College District, has a rich schedule of academic, cultural, and student-planned events. The campus consists of 12 permanent buildings, including fiber optics and satellite transmission capabilities for the latest in information/communication services. The college offers a broad option of more than 60 occupational degree programs, and a comprehensive curriculum of transfer courses. Cosumnes River College has emerged with very much its own identity, small enough to offer personalized attention, yet large enough to offer a comprehensive postsecondary education to the community it serves.
The college originally opened on September 14, 1970, with 1,800 day and 350 evening students, and now enrolls 11,000 students. Facilities included the science building, automotive and technology complex, women’s physical education building, pool, and the library building.
In September 1975, the Business/Social Science classroom building was dedicated, the first since the college opened. The computer laboratory, located there, is equipped with state-of-the-art data processing equipment that supports many areas of the college curriculum.
The Cafeteria/College Center opened in Fall 1990 with facilities for both the instructional foodservice program and student/staff needs. Phase II of the College Center opened in June 1991 for Admissions/Records, Financial Aid, Business Services, Administration and the Bookstore. A new visual and performing arts complex was opened in October 1995, thus completing the college’s original facilities master plan.
