Western Oregon University anticipates more than 750 freshmen and transfer students arriving on campus during new student week – and many of them will be hungry.

New Student Feed is planned for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, along Church Street on campus. Hosted by the Monmouth-Independence Chamber of Commerce and the Monmouth Business Association, the event invites new students to attend, have a meal and get to know local businesses.

Vendor opportunities are $30 for Chamber members and $60 for non-member businesses. Vendors are encouraged to have samples or freebies for students. Prizes are also drawn.

For information, contact the chamber at (503) 838-4268 or micc@minetfiber.com. Application deadline is Wednesday, Sept. 12.
