The community is invited to an event called Explore UCC on Thursday.
Umpqua Community College will be open for tours of the Nursing Department, Dental Lab, welding facility, and other areas on campus. A release from the college says a variety of UCC programs and departments will be featured including Business, Computer Information Systems, Engineering, History, Journalism, Paralegal, Spanish, Writing and many more.
Recruitment Specialist Kira Oerman says the school wants people of all ages to “have a great time while learning about everything UCC has to offer”. Food and prizes will be available while supplies last. A drawing will also be held for a $500 scholarship.
Explore UCC runs from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday. Registrations will be accepted but participants are encouraged to pre-register to avoid long lines at the door. To pre-register go to https://www.umpqua.edu/enrollatucc.
