Rapid Registration

        Terra State Community College will be offering several “Rapid Registration” events to assist students in registering for fall 2018 classes.

        During a “Rapid Registration” appointment, students can register for classes, complete orientation and have any questions answered. Students can schedule an appointment on the following days:

        Thursday, Aug. 2: 10 a.m.-12 p.m., 1-3 p.m.

        Monday, Aug. 6: 10 a.m.-12 p.m., 10-3 p.m.

        Students who do not have an ACT or Accuplacer score already in place are encouraged to schedule testing prior to their “Rapid Registration” session. Students should also plan a few extra minutes to visit financial aid, the cashier’s office and other campus locations to take care of any other college business.

Farmers market

    Oregon will hold its third farmers market and food truck fest this year in the parking lot of Pat Catan, 3010 Navarre Avenue, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Aug. 1.

        In addition to a large variety of local produce available for sale, there will also be food trucks at the site, some of which will offer pizza, steak sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs and french fries.

        There will also be local vendors offering crafts for sale.

        “We’ve got some new vendors for the food trucks,” Oregon City Councilman James Seaman, who helps coordinate the event, said last week. “And we promise to have plenty of produce this time. There are some vendors who accept the fruit and vegetable vouchers if anyone has them.”

        Oregon held a farmers’ market and food truck fest in May and June this year.
