The 10th Annual Explore Engineering, Surveying, Forestry and Information Technology Dinner will be held at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 15, in the Umpqua Community College gymnasium, 1140 Umpqua College Road, Roseburg.

This free event will start with a career fair featuring more than 40 booths from industry employers followed by dinner and program presentations.

Students from area middle and high schools, plus adults interested in careers and educational pathways in engineering, surveying, forestry, computer science, information technology, natural resources, water quality operations, and related fields are invited to attend.

In addition to industry professionals, representatives from the engineering, surveying, forestry and computer programs from UCC, Oregon State University, Oregon Institute of Technology, and Portland State University will be on-hand to answer education and training questions and discuss their respective programs.

Participants are encouraged to register early. UCC expects the headcount to exceed the 300 that attended last year. Visit or call (541) 440-4605. Registration will be accepted at the door.

I think Vera is deleting comments she doesn't like again.


Are both the dinner and the career fair free?


Vera doesn't usually respond to comments. :(


Vera what does the last sentence of your article mean? It reads "Registration will be accepted at the door." From the sounds of the article people should preregister. Does this mean that the folks who are putting this on will register people at the door?


Mogie I am going to buy you a dictionary as yes, that is exactly what it means.
