Serra Mesa is part of North City
Drive around Aero Drive and you'll notice signs beckoning you to sign up for free computer classes at the two-story building nearby.
It's a pretty ordinary building that needs a parking repavement and some art work to draw more attention. But I can't complain. Classes are really free.
It's the North City Campus of the San Diego Continuing Education Center. You can upgrade your skills here in a hurry. Excel, PowerPoint, Microsoft Word.
It's first come, first serve. I've taken a few classes here already and received a certificate for hours of completion. I'm no expert in Excel or PowerPoint yet but it's a start.
Dropped by here yesterday and picked up a schedule. I'm definitely taking the digital photography classes. How to sell on eBay looks good too.
I have driven past the campus for several years now but didn't pay notice until a friend at the gym told me classes were free.
The classes are free but the effort you put just to get there and start learning, well that's priceless.
