The new Central Oregon Community College Prineville Campus is open for students. The first day of classes won't be until next month, but the new 12,000 square foot building is open and being used by the community. Jeff Papke with the college says classes start for COCC on September 19th and for OSU on September 26th. “We're expecting total enrollment of 400 students. We started with four classes of 87 students last winter. 90% of the students are residents in Crook County and over 50% of them it's the first time they've taken college classes. The average age was 39. The campus was paid for by a bond issue approved by voters in 2009. Voters approved a $41 million levy to improve the COCC Bend Campus and build satellite campuses in Madras and Prineville.
