For more information on registration, call Student Services at 262-0330.

The KRC Student Union is hosting special events for students during finals week (Dec. 6 -- 9). They will be serving free breakfast from 8:30 -- 9:30 a.m. in the McLane Commons. Students can also sign up for free massages (provided by Dr. Frisk's office) in the McLane Commons. Massages will be given from 10 a.m. -- 3 p.m. and walk-ins are welcome.

Textbook buyback

It's time for textbook buyback at the Kenai River Campus! Students can bring textbooks for cash to the KRC Bookstore from 10 a.m. -- 12 p.m. and 1 -- 3 p.m. beginning today through Wednesday, Dec. 15. The bookstore will be buying back textbooks that will be used again next semester. Last fall, $24,200 went to students as a direct result of the textbook buyback. This program is a great way to put cash in students pockets and help future students buy used books.
