Sue Michaels

For my first year of college in 1975 I attended Washington State University. While it was a great school all of my General Education classes had 200+ students in them. My Biology class was held in a large auditorium with over 600 students and was taught by a TA! I moved to California right after my first year and continued on at Sierra. The small class sizes and working directly with Professors made all the difference for me. I really found myself at Sierra. When I transferred to Sac State as a junior, the solid foundation given to me by Sierra made it possible for me to focus on my major and do well. Best of all in 2001, I was hired by Sierra. It felt like coming home.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the District’s websites choose to interact with the District in ways that require the District to gather personally-identifying information.

The District collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the District. The District does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
