To pursue college classes in the summer term is to take on a serious challenge. Oregon Coast Community College’s summer term students are generally working – often in multiple jobs. The summer is the busiest time for businesses on the coast, and their employees. On top of workload, they also face challenges with daycare, as most children wind up at home while the schools are closed for the season.
Despite all this, our summer students excel. They find a way. The OCCC family is proud of all of our students, and are pleased to present this list of summer students who not only persevered through classes, work, and a busy home life, but who also performed at exceptional levels in the classroom.
The Fall 2022 term is now underway, and features even more in-person on-site courses than the Spring or Summer terms, while still maintaining a healthy lineup of online and hybrid courses for those for whom work, family, or other demands make remote learning a preferable modality. The OCCC e-sports league has begun, with some gaming events already held early in the term, and dedicated student volunteers from the Associated Student Government are busy building the “Shark Shack,” a resource featuring free groceries, toiletries, and more, for students in need of such support.
