More students are attending OCCC’s Brown Bag series, said Katie Treadwell, Student Life programs coordinator.

“Attendance for the Brown Bag specials (grows) with each seminar,” Treadwell said.

Brown Bags are a series of lunchtime learning sessions hosted by Student Life.

During Brown Bag lectures, which are free and last about half an hour, Treadwell and other speakers address different topics, such as study skills and financial issues.

“Many professors offer extra credit to students (who attend) these seminars,” she said.
