At Oregon Tech, Director of Admissions Carl Thomas says OIT created a program called New Wings to help new students adjust to campus life.

Last year, 2,500 students enrolled for fall classes and Thomas says this year’s numbers are looking strong, including one of OIT’s newest programs getting decent enrollment.

Oregon Tech is expecting heavy traffic and cautions motorists traveling in the campus area.

Monday is also the first day of classes for Klamath Community College. Listen to a conversation with KCC’s Ryan Brown in Monday’s Viewing the Basin Podcast (found here around 10:30 a.m.  Monday).
