Oregon State University has always been a place with a purpose — making a positive difference in quality of life, natural resources and economic prosperity in Oregon and beyond. Through discovery, innovation and application, we are meeting challenges, solving problems and turning ideas into reality.
Founded in 1868, Oregon State is the state's Land Grant university and is one of only two universities in the U.S. to have Sea Grant , Space Grant and Sun Grant designations. Oregon State is also the only university in Oregon to hold both the Carnegie Foundation's top designation for research institutions and its prestigious Community Engagement classification.
A living space on campus is more than just a room to study and sleep in. At Oregon State, a residence hall is a community. It's a place where friendships, ideas and memories are created.

Registration opens for OCCC's 2018-19 Small Business Management Program Are you ready to invest some time in the classroom to help grow your business? Perhaps now is the time to take advantage of one of Lincoln County's most prominent and established
The Small Business Management Program at its core consists of monthly classroom sessions, from September through June, along with once-monthly one-on-one advising sessions, during which participants meet alone with their business advisor from the SBDC.
“The typical SBM participant does a lot more than these two appointments per month,” said OCCC SBDC Director Dave Price. “They also do a great deal of work on their business, not just in their business. Generally, SBM participants are joining the program because they have some goals for their business to achieve during the year. Some are out to overhaul and improve their marketing programs and strategies. Others are determined to get their financial reporting improved and to resole longstanding issues with their QuickBooks records. Still others are hoping to learn more about resolving nagging personnel issues. And then,” Price continued, “there are those who are simply eager to learn more about doing business – and specifically to learn from other business owners about doing business here in our wonderful, crazy, and challenging corner of the world.”
Price, a county resident since 1996 who launched his own business here in 2005 and sold it in 2013, is a graduate of the SBM. “I enrolled in the program in the depths of the Great Recession,” he said. “I loved the monthly advising sessions – they were a great way to step out of the day to day stresses of the workplace and to really talk strategy, and building value for the long term.”
This year, the SBDC plans to offer two different cohorts of the SBM; one that meets Tuesday afternoons in Newport, and another meeting Wednesday mornings in Lincoln City.
“We began offering two cohorts two years ago,” Lambrecht said. “Business tell us they appreciate the convenience of having sessions closer to home, and also the ability to catch a missed class at the other location.”
The Oregon Coast Community College Student Nurse Association has announced its 10th annual Hygiene Drive.
Each year for the past decade, students in OCCC's nursing program have set up tables at various Lincoln County retail stores to collect personal hygiene items for children in need.
Lynn Barton, a member of the nursing faculty, says this year the program has teamed up with an existing Lincoln County-based support program.
“Unfortunately, many children and their families are in need of personal hygiene supplies,” Barton said. “We can help through a simple donation to our Lincoln County based family support program, H.E.L.P. – the Homeless Education & Literacy Project.
You can donate to the program simply by visiting these locations while nursing students are collecting donations of key items (see list below) as well as monetary contributions.
The SNO encourages the community to consider donating any of the following items, of particular use to the target population the drive aims to serve – Lincoln County children aged 5-18.
Shampoo • Conditioner • Face Wash • Deodorant • Skin Lotion • Toothpaste • Toothbrushes • Feminine Hygiene Products • Hair Ties • Brushes & Combs • Mini First Aid Kits • Hand Sanitizer • Underwear/Boxers • Socks • Diapers • Laundry Detergent • Lice Kits • Diapers
