Coastal Bend College students packed the facility during Cougar Days as they prep for first day of school.

Several sessions and workshops were provided to students on applications, financial aid, advising on courses, etc.

Prizes such as I-pads, t-shirts and other items were giving away. Free hot dogs, pizza, cake and drinks were available for all the students.

Vendors lined up the front area with freebies for the students and the Cougar mascot was at hand for pictures and morale.

The college is expecting an increase of enrollment this fall semester.
