Feather Rive'College seeks student housing As Feather River College continues to grow and bring new students to the area, hous- ing continues to be an issue. According to Dr Lisa Kel- ly, interim chief student ser- vices officer for Feather River College, the campus apart- ments, after a slow start, have filled up for the fall semester. Kelly hopes local landlords will consider making homes and apartments available for students to rent. Feather River -College hosts a housing board on its website that allows landlords and potential tenantsto con- nect. Those with a house, apartment or room to rent to FRC students, go to the hous- ing board on the FRC website to register the rental. The ad is free and is guaranteed to generate a good selection of qualified applicants, espe- cially as the start of school ,f nears. FR students come to Plumas County from all over the United States and several countries; they are often very interesting young people. Many are from small rural communities much like Quincy and fit in here very nicely. All FRC students receive a bus pass when they register, so any rental that is served by Plumas Transit is a potential good fit. Potential renters may con- tact Connie Litz at 283-0202, ext. 317, or simply go to the housing board by rising the address above. Many landlords in the Quincy area have rented to students for years and have been very happy With the experience. Several local landlords say renting to FRCstudents is almost like having their grandkids come stay. Those same landlords have F ill moon hike Monday , What could be better'than at 8:30 p.m,, after a 2-mile an evening of dining and round-trip hike from the drinks followed by a guilt-ap- lodge to Smith Lake.

The event wraps up more information. some tips to make the experi- ence better. Nancy Luce, who rents to several students each year, advises, "Offer incentives for payment in advance. If parents pay nine months up front, I offer 10 months rent, it saves time in the end. I also recommend that you stick with either all men or all women, if you are renting to multiple students. I've also found that grouping students with similar ma- jors, or interests, is helpful. They just seem to get along better that way." Kelly said several factors contribute to the housing crunch. State budget cuts have resulted in fewer applicants being accepted to f0ur-year- schools, and rising tuition fees are making it harder for stu- dents to afford the cost of at- tending four-year schools, leading to rising enrollments at many community colleges. As FRC's reputation grows regionally, more and more students are coming in from out of the area to take advan- tage of the opportunity tO live in the mountains while re- ceiving an education. Those factors have all come togeth- er to make student housing both a challenge for the col- lege and an opportunity for the community.
