Three finalists for the top administrative job at Glendale Community College spoke of transparency, trust and compassion during a public forum Thursday where each put forth their vision for the campus. Born and raised in Mauritius, a small island off the southern coast of Africa, Rajen Vurdien is president of Fullerton College, a post he has held since 2010. Previously, he was a vice president at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo for six years. "I see the Glendale position as an opportunity for me to grow and serve the students in a different capacity," he said, explaining why he wants to be the school's next supt./president.

GLENDALE - The Glendale Community College softball team had a chance in the second game of a double dip against Bakersfield College Thursday afternoon to finish a sweep of the three-game season series against its foe from the Western State Conference Blue Division. The Vaqueros were poised to do just that, taking a three-run lead into the top of the final inning before the visitors tied it up. However, GCC dug deep and salvaged the sweep on the strength of a two-run walk-off homer on the initiative of Vanessa Mendoza, giving the home team a 6-4 victory.

There doesn't figure to be much experience up and down the Glendale Community College men's basketball team roster. As far as Glendale college Coach Brian Beauchemin is concerned, it's not the worst position for the Vaqueros to be in. If anything, Beauchemin is eager to see how most of the 15-member squad - with just three returners - will respond to adapting to the more physical style presented at the collegiate level. “We have a lot of new faces and that's fine,” said Beauchemin, whose team will tip off its season at 3 p.m. Friday against visiting Compton.

An upright piano installed near the administration building at Glendale Community College last month as part of a three-week performing arts project is slated to become a permanent fixture on campus. The piano was one of 30 placed at public sites around Los Angeles County by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra to celebrate 15 years under the leadership of music director and pianist Jeffrey Kahane. “One of the best parts of having the piano outside on campus is to see students with no other access to musical instruments just playing with it and having fun,” said Peter Green, chairman of the visual and performing arts division at Glendale Community College.

An equipment malfunction at Glendale Community College on Tuesday night caused a second power outage in as many weeks, forcing officials to close the campus into Wednesday. College spokeswoman Wendy Grove said the power failure was likely related to the same equipment. There were no students on campus Wednesday morning. “They haven't let anybody on,” she said. Interim Supt. Jim Riggs met with officials Wednesday morning and said a crew was addressing the problem. More information would be available later in the morning, he said.
