Cosumnes River College Welcome Statements
A Word From Our College President:
Cosumnes River College is committed to making sure each one of our athletes excels, not only in their sport, but in the classroom. We also want to make sure they are prepared to be good citizens, concerned about their community and dedicated to making change in a positive way. Their success here means success when they leave.
The college was established in 1970. Since our opening, the faculty and staff have had high expectations of all students, inspiring achievement, and fostering positive engagement in the teaching and learning process. Our students learn from talented, committed and culturally diverse faculty, staff and administrators who are leaders in their fields and in the community.
Our athletic and physical education department is no exception. With outstanding facilities including a multi-million dollar Community and Athletic Center, baseball stadium, softball stadium, soccer fields, Olympic size swimming pool, and tennis courts, CRC truly serves the athletic and physical education needs of our students.
Cosumnes River College is proud to be a long-standing and respected member of the Big 8 Conference. The Big 8 Conference epitomizes the ideals of sport in the community college system and hosts the most competitive colleges in northern California. Big 8 representatives consistently rank at the top of the polls in every sport in which we compete.
As the Hawks enter into athletic contests, we know we have provided our student athletes with the intellectual, physical, and mental resources necessary to compete with spirit and integrity at the highest level. It is with pride that we support them as they participate in athletic competitions at the local, regional and state level.
I encourage you to attend as many games as you can, and support our student athletes, the Cosumnes River College Hawks!
