Love Lives Forever

This series of three classes is designed to assist people who are dealing with the effects of grief and loss which include anxiety and depression. “My classes would also be appropriate for anyone who is interested in making connections beyond the veil,” wrote instructor Violet Young. “My classes will be discussing the concept that Love Never Dies, and that connecting with deceased loved ones is possible. I will be presenting my own experiences since my husband crossed over on April 6, 2015, as well as my experiences with other family members prior to this loss. I will also share experiences that I had with my mother when she was in hospice. This will be a forum for people to share their own experiences and thoughts about the possibility that they have received messages from their loved ones. This class is spiritually based however not religious. I would be assisting people in becoming more open and aware, discerning and receptive of possible messages from loved ones. In my experience, many people have experienced messages and visitations but are often self-conscious or afraid to actually believe it. My classes would help people to feel less isolated and confused, leading to more self-acceptance and self-love to assist with the grieving/healing journey.” Newport Mondays, Jan. 23-Feb. 6 • 1pm-3pm Tuition: $45 Instructor: Violet Young Register: Call 541-996-6222 or visit oregoncoastcc.org/communityed

Creative Writing Workshop

Workshop is vital for writers who want to improve upon a specific piece of writing or their writing style in general. The workshop experience and constructive criticism is meant to help writers better understand the complex relationship between a piece of literature and its audience. Though it can feel uncomfortable, it is meant to produce respectful suggestions for improvement and to give an opportunity to express appreciation for what needs no improvement. Both novice and professional writers are welcome but this is not an introductory or instructive writing course. It is designed for the writer who has a piece (or pieces) that they are wanting constructive criticism for. Each writer will have two, thirty minute maximum length opportunities to read their work to the group and receive feedback. Copies of the writing sample need to be provided for the group when you are slotted for your reading. First class meeting will be orientation.

south county classes ‘Have a Pleasant Present’

This class is about assisting people in understanding that our own personal belief system and self-talk set us up to perceive the world either negatively or positively. We are influenced and become preconditioned by and through our upbringing and life experiences. As this happens so slowly during our lives, and we become resigned to the “usual outcome”, we are not conscious of the patterns being formed. After resigning ourselves to the “it’s just the way it is” way of life, there is often the onset of depression and anxiety. By exploring and learning to recognize our own patterns and triggers as well as recognizing that we can give ourselves options to view situations from different perspectives, we can then be open to make choices that painlessly create new growth and joy. During the class, there will be time for personal exploration and sharing of personal experiences by class members. There will be helpful hand outs and the creation of personal flash cards by class members. Waldport Tuesday, Feb. 21 & 28, Noon-2pm Tuition: $30 Instructor: Violet Young

ready when you are, OCCC DIGITAL STUDIO READY FOR ITS CLOSE-UP

Almost a year ago, Oregon Coast Community College’s Small Business Development Center secured a generous economic development grant from Lincoln County. With it, the SBDC built the Oregon Coast Digital Media & Marketing Studio (DMMS). Assembled throughout the summer, the studio is now open for business. Any small business in Lincoln County can use the studio to photograph their products (food, crafts, artwork and more), or record video or audio marketing materials. The DMMS has already been used to photograph sculptures, paintings, sketches, glass art and more. Its large green screen has been used for video recordings and two businesses have recorded radio advertisements. The acoustically-paneled DMMS features a still- and video DSLR camera (Canon 5D MkIII), a Kaiser copy stand (for highquality photography of paintings and other two-dimensional pieces), a chromatic green screen, and an Apple iMac with Camtasia, Final Cut Pro and other software. The SBDC is recruiting for a part-time studio host with applicable photography, software and editing skills to assist businesses using the studio. In the interim, SBDC staff are available to schedule 1- or 2-hour appointments in the studio. OCCC students may also reserve the studio for class projects. To learn more or to find out how you can reserve the DMMS, call 541-994-4166.

Small Business Classes Free Business Advising

This Winter, the Oregon Coast Community College Small Business Development Center is pleased to continue “Doing Business in Lincoln County,” a jumping-off point for would-be entrepreneurs and business owners. If you’re considering starting a business on the Oregon Coast, are simply curious about how a typical business gets started, or if you’ve recently launched a business here, this is a class you shouldn’t miss. Start with a solid understanding of break-even analysis, learn how to register your business locally and with the state, and determine if you have “The Right Stuff” for entrepreneurship in the first place. The class is taught by Craig Grant, who’s been advising Oregon Coast business owners for more than a decade in Lincoln County. Lincoln City Wednesday, Feb. 15 • 10am-Noon Tuition: $25 Instructor: Craig Grant

Doing Business in Lincoln County

One of the core services offered by the Oregon Coast Community College Small Business Development Center for nearly 30 years is free, confidential, one-on-one business advising. “Any business owner, or anyone even considering starting a business at some point in the future, is welcome to come in and discuss whatever is on their mind,” said Dave Price, Director of the SBDC. Many think the SBDC serves mainly start-up enterprises, when in fact only 30% of SBDC counseling clients are start-ups. The majority of SBDC clients have been in business for years. “A number of our clients represent businesses that have served Lincoln County for decades, even generations,” Price said. Counseling clients often meet first with Craig Grant, OCCC’s lead business advisor. He has helped businesses value their firms prior to sale and address new competitive forces and changes in the marketplace, and he’s helped countless would-be entrepreneurs explore the potential of their new business ideas. Registering for counseling is simple. Click the link at www.oregoncoastcc.org/sbdc. Appointments are available at the Lincoln City or Newport OCCC locations.

Real Estate Broker’s License Pre-Exam Class Just one look at the scenery around us, and it’s no wonder that Lincoln County is such a promising place to work as a Real Estate Broker. And, this Winter, Oregon Coast Community College will present a 10-week Real Estate Pre-License course, a course designed to help aspiring Real Estate brokers launch their careers here on the Central Coast. This Winter, the course will be presented at OCCC’s North County Center in Lincoln City. The class revolves around online course work completed independently between weekly classroom sessions, and it meets the 150-hour Oregon Real Estate Agency requirement to qualify

to take the Oregon State Real Estate Broker License exam. “Once a student completes this course,” said OCCC Small Business Development Center Director Dave Price, “they will be able to submit their broker application to the Oregon Real Estate Agency and they’ll be able to take the Oregon State/PSI Real Estate Broker exam.” Lincoln City Tuesdays, Jan. 10-March 14 • 5:30-8:30pm Saturday, March 18 • 9am-5pm Tuition: $600 Instructor: Linda Laughlin Roy

Small Business Classes Is My Website Working for my Business?

Did you pay a lot for a website and still can’t be found on a Google search? Do you know how much traffic your website is getting? Where is that traffic coming from? What search words do people use to find your services? Google Analytics is a free, powerful, independent tool that can provide you with real answers to how and when visitors are finding your website, and what type of users visit the site, and your social media platforms. Prerequisite: A website with Google Analytics, and access to your report with at least 30 days of traffic – students unsure of how to load Google Analytics on their site should contact the instructor prior to class.

It’s never too late for college! Residents 65 or better receive FREE tuition for OCCC credit classes The pursuit of knowledge is a lifelong process, and OCCC is pleased to offer senior learners the opportunity to enhance new and existing skills through challenging and intellectually stimulating programs. If you are an Oregon resident who is 65 or older, you may be eligible for free or discounted tuition rates. Seniors get free tuition for credit classes when taken for an audit grading option. Auditing is taking a class without receiving a grade or credit. You can only audit a class if there are still seats available on the first day of class. This 100% tuition waiver does not cover lab fees or other class fees. Many classes fill up early, so space is not guaranteed. The only way to secure a spot in a class is to register early and pay full tuition. Auditing students must be registered for eight credits or less per term. Simply find the credit class you want to audit on pages 12-14, then complete the waiver form found at oregoncoastcc.org (or call 541-867-8501 and request one), and bring it to the first day of class. Your instructor will need to approve the audit. After that, you’ll give the signed form to Enrollment Services Coordinator to verify enrollment and waitlist status. Finally, pay course fees and purchase textbooks and/or other materials not covered by the tuition waiver, and you’re ready! For more information about tuition waivers and credit class schedules, call 541867-8501 or check the schedule in this publication or at oregoncoastcc.org.

Make a difference, with a donation to the OCCC Foundation

Meet Daniel Edwards, a recipient of OCCC Foundation Scholarship support, thanks to donors like you. I am 25 years old and am currently on track to earn my Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree (AAOT). Fourteen months ago I was struck by a car while on a motorcycle. Thankfully, the paramedics were there within minutes after I was hit and immediately did their job with efficiency and empathy. Though my injuries were not life-threatening, they were devastating enough to be life-altering. This painful experience, combined with my desire to help people and a craving for education and knowledge, helped me find my purpose – to become a paramedic here in my beautiful home state. The pain we endure in life is what defines us. Not what the pain is, but how we respond to it. My accident could have broken me in more ways than physically, and it almost did. The financial set-back is something I am still recovering from. But I rose up from this pain and made it into a lesson rather than a punishment. I was given the courage to take the plunge into higher education. At some point in our lives we will all need a helping hand. Whether we’re being hoisted into an ambulance, are having financial woes, or just simply need a shoulder on which to lean. When I look around OCCC, I see people of all ages working hard to make their dreams and goals a reality. Some of us struggle

more than others, and with opportunities like the Oregon Coast Community College scholarship, those goals are made that much more achievable. You can make a difference in the lives of our students and the future of our region. Meaningful, quality education is the key to better employment, financial success and personal satisfaction. Please consider a gift to the OCCC Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Your gift may be tax deductible as allowed by law. For more information or to donate online, visit our website, oregoncoastcc.org/foundation or email us at foundation@oregoncoastcc.org.
