EUGENE, CORVALLIS, Ore. (KMTR) -- No matter if you're a Duck, a Beaver or a Titan, it’s a big first day across community college and university campuses on Monday with the first day of fall classes starting up.
The University of Oregon, Oregon State University and Lane Community College all start classes tomorrow.
The start of fall term for the three biggest campuses in Western Oregon means more than 100,000 students will hit the books.
Over at the University of Oregon, more than 4,000 students are freshman. Many spent Sunday walking the campus, surveying where their classes will be and preparing for their first year on their own.
“Nerves and I don't really know what to expect from the classes and I don't really know where they are,” says Molly Meyer, a UO freshman from Eugene.
“Yeah, but I am excited to meet the people in my classes,” says Clarie Aufderheide, a UO freshman from Eugene.
“Excited to experience my first college class but, not wanting... doing nothing to end at the same time!" says Alex Hefley, a UO freshman from California.
Of course, one of the biggest things that comes with classes Monday is a change in traffic. Most will probably notice it around Lane Community College and Exit 189 on I5.
The college is advising people to take the bus if possible. Peak parking is between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Don’t park on Gonyea Road or Eldon Schaefer drive either, because you could get a ticket.
