Upon losing $18 million of its operating budget, CCSF is searching for ways to cut costs. They've already implemented many cost-saving measures, including canceling their summer session, to the disappointment of many, and now they're asking students to brainstorm with them for more solutions. See CCSF's "Cost-$aving$ Ideas Contest" page and contest rules for more info, and submit your ideas here.

CCSF is also looking for businesses to donate prizes for the contest, which they can submit through the contest idea form. (Kind of a convoluted process, we know.) Current prizes include

  • $100 gift certificate from CCSF bookstore
  • Free tickets to the Exploratorium
  • Free movie tickets
  • One bottle of wine from Argentina
  • Out of the Crater, Chronicles of a Volcanologist by Richard V. Fisher
