Van Jam 2020
For the past nine years, Southwestern Community College has hosted “Van Jam” (which is a segment of Bus Jam). This is an annual donation event to support students and families in our local area with nonperishable food, money and toys. Once again, our very own student supply closet will be a distribution sight for the event, meaning food and supplies will be provided to our college. Your contribution helps our very own student body!
This year, we’ve implemented a completely virtual way to engage in Van Jam. For all the details and to make your donation, please visit the event website: https://bit.ly/34DP9El.
Contributions may be made until Dec. 5, 2020. We hope you will participate!

What Our Students Are Saying . . .
I am attending the Brookings campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College. I maintain a high grade-point average of 4.0, and I am an active community member that participates in community service and community involvement. I also work part time at a local business in my newly sought profession, Business and Accounting. Thank you again so much for this gift and wonderful opportunity to follow my dreams and obtain a college degree to help me find a higher paying job in the profession that I love. - Donna Miller-Crabtree, Bezzarides ScholarshipDonna Miller-Crabtree
Taking advantage of College Now is one of the smartest decisions I made. It allowed me to enter my four-year degree with so much more flexibility in my course load that other students don’t normally have. It also allowed me to dive straight into degree specific courses, which has really helped me in the STEM field.Nathan Midyette
Through College Now, I was able to take calculus at the high school which made it so I did not have to take it in college. This met my math requirement and opened up room in my schedule for courses on topics I was more passionate about.

I am 24 years old and will be a second-year nursing student next year. I live in Brookings and attend the Curry campus. SWOCC has given me the education to progress toward my goals of becoming a well-rounded nurse. I have always believed in compassionate care for individuals and have practiced this as I go throughout my clinical rotation. I love being able to care for people and create an atmosphere of kindness. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity. - Lauren Cotten, DeArmond CTE ScholarshipLauren Cotten
"I came to Southwestern Oregon Community College because this school offered me opportunities that I could not get anywhere else. After graduation, I will transfer to a university and major in graphic design or digital media. With your help, you have brought my goals closer to reality. I cannot put into words how appreciative I am of that." - Kayla Flint, John W. Burles Memorial ScholarshipKayla Flint
