Here's What's Happening at OCCC!


A Letter from President Ryslinge

Dear Friends,

I know you were devastated by the news of the tragedy this morning at Umpqua Community College.  Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their loved ones.  It is difficult to understand how these senseless tragedies can continue to occur in our country. I know many staff and students at the College are thinking about the tragedy that occurred and want to offer support to those at Umpqua Community College impacted by this horrible event... {Continued}

Mussel Harvesting on the Oregon Coast

On Monday, Nov. 9, discover the tasty bounty that's right outside your window, and learn all about harvesting and preparing fresh, live, wild mussels on the Oregon Coast. The class meets on the beach at NW 15th Street in Lincoln City, where Paul Robertson walks participants through the process of identifying, selecting and removing the choicest specimens. All participants must show their current Oregon Shellfish License at the class to harvest (licenses available at Eleanor's Undertow and Bi-Mart in Lincoln City, among other locations). 

This is just one of the many Community Education courses you'll find this fall at OCCC. Click here to check out the complete lineup -- and hurry, as classes are filling fast!
