OJC and Pepsi Host Registration Fair


Otero Junior College and Pepsi hosted a Re-Registration Fair at OJC on Nov. 20 to provide current OJC students with a quick and easy way to get registered for Spring.

Sponsored by Pepsi, the event brought out scores of current students who were able to meet with an academic advisor and financial aid advisors to make sure they were ready to start classes again in the spring.

Almabeth Kaess, associate vice president of Enrollment Management at OJC, explained that the concept behind the fair was to help students make a smooth transition into their next semester. “We are nearing the end of Fall Semester and most students are frantically trying to wrap up final projects and study for final exams. Sometimes in the hustle of these last few weeks, what gets missed is finding the time to get registered and set up their financial aid packages for the next semester,” said Kaess.

In a cooperative partnership with Pepsi, the official beverage contractor for the Colorado Community College System, OJC was able to provide food, beverages, t-shirts, games and prizes to students who participated in the Registration Fair.

“It was a great event to host for our students to help lighten up their stress levels at this time of year and bring the campus community together to enjoy the successes of another great semester,” said Kaess. “We are very appreciative of Pepsi for their sponsorship and support of our students.”

As the Fall Semester winds down at OJC, registration for Spring Semester will remain open until January 13, 2020. Spring Semester will begin on January 13, 2020.
