Santiago Canyon was established as a separate campus, rather than as a satellite campus, in 1997.

Before a crowd of more than 100 people, the Rancho Santiago College Board of Trustees on Wednesday unanimously agreed that a swap meet held each Sunday in the college parking lot does not harm the surrounding neighborhood. Members of the Washington Square Neighborhood Assn. had complained that El Mercado, a mostly Latino swap meet, brings traffic, trash and noise to their neighborhood. The group was lobbying to have it moved to another location.

Gene Isaacson, acting director of the Rancho Santiago College Art Gallery in Santa Ana, says his habit of collecting art has grown from "a mild interest to a passion. And from a passion to an incurable disease." A portion of his collection--about 50 works representing a mere 25% of his graphics collection--is on display at the college. The exhibit, at 17th and Bristol streets, runs through Friday.

Kelly Jackson decided to keep it a secret. Rather than spoil the surprise, he would let his mother, who lives in Kansas City, see the Coke commercial herself. "So she called," Jackson said, "and she asked me, 'Were you on television?' and I was like, 'Well, yeah, I was.' And she said, 'Were you drinking a Coke?' And I said, 'Yeah, I was.' And she was just so happy."

A $1.5-million federal grant that one Orange County community college district rejected is about to be scooped up by another district in the county to encourage the development of new businesses. The grant from the U.S. Commerce Department will help the Rancho Santiago Community College District build a business incubator for digital-imaging companies. It probably will be built at Santiago Canyon College in Orange, which, with Santa Ana College, make up the district's two main campuses.

Like a person hosting a big dinner party for the first time, Santiago Canyon College's staff had to do some serious planning in the months before the school's first commencement.

Driven to raise money for everything from scholarships to landscaping, Santiago Canyon College in Orange is about to steer its fund-raising efforts in a new direction by turning a parking area into a weekend used-car lot. Starting Saturday, the community college will set aside 200 parking spaces for vehicle owners to peddle their Plymouths and sell their Scoupes. No pressure. No bad suits. A Santa Cruz company does the work, charging sellers $35 for a spot.
