NEWPORT — Applying to college can be one of those formidable tasks students want to put off, but with some pushing from teachers and mentors last week, many got it done.

The Lincoln County School District participated in College Application Week from Nov. 3-7, when teachers and mentors looked over college applications and essays, and helped students explore financial aid and post secondary options.
“I think it’s good to open a lot of people’s eyes on where they can go and what places offer,” Newport High senior Daniel Regan said.
He himself plans to travel as a professional fighter for awhile, but at some point he wants to go to Oregon State University to study sports science and business.
A variety of college representatives came to the county’s high schools last week to speak with students, and multiple workshops, like “How to Pick a College,” were held.
