College freshmen are getting their first taste of higher education today, with local community colleges and Vanguard University all opening their classrooms for the fall semester this week. First up were the junior college students Monday, with more than 30,000 of them enrolled at either Orange Coast College or Coastline Community College for the fall semester. Enrollment is up 5% and 8% for the schools, respectively, compared with last year. Enrollment figures for Vanguard were unavailable Tuesday.

Two computers stolen from Vanguard University earlier this month have put more than 5,000 financial aid applicants at risk for identity theft, authorities said today. On Jan. 16, school employees discovered that someone had taken the computers from the school's financial aid office over the Martin Luther King Day weekend. Initially university officials had no idea the computers could contain sensitive data, said Ed Westbrook, the school's vice president of student affairs.

Like many college students, Vanguard University junior Daisy Navarro eagerly anticipates the arrival of spring break each year because it implies a trip to Mexico with several of her closest friends. But Navarro and her companions don't spend their vacation partying on Cancun's beaches. They recently returned from Ensenada, where Navarro worked eight-hour days renovating a local orphanage and entertaining its children. "I had a lot of papers to write and other things to study for, but it's about leaving those things behind and taking the time to help others," said Navarro, who also volunteers at House of Hope, a local shelter for battered women.

Costa Mesa is home to more than 100 chronically homeless people, according to preliminary results of a citywide count done during the past two days by Vanguard University and the nonprofit group Mercy House. About 75 volunteers, mostly students from Vanguard, including the university’s baseball team, headed out in cars, on foot and on bicycle to search for homeless people living in riverbeds and under freeway overpasses. “I hope we can use some of the information we collect to benefit them,” said Vanguard baseball player Eric Krzysiak.

For a 14-year-old girl living in Ensenada, Mexico, turning 15 often means it is time for marriage and a family. The teens, living in impoverished areas, don’t see too many other options — or so they thought. A few Vanguard students beg to differ. Mabel Vega, a 20-year-old former Vanguard University student, befriended one of these girls a year ago when she went down to Ensenada as part of the school’s outreach program. Vanguard has been taking students to Mexico for outreach programs for about 20 years.

WESTMINSTER - A burgeoning relationship between a small Christian college in Costa Mesa and a public university in Iraq could help shape the Middle Eastern country's response to gender-based violence in its northern region. Over the span of 15 days, a small team of Iraqi government officials and academics are touring Orange County and studying the local justice system's procedures for crimes against women. Wednesday, the group of about half a dozen Iraqis gathered at Westminster's police headquarters.

Residents of Costa Mesa's Monticello and Newport Landing communities are facing off with Vanguard University over what they say is excessive use of the school's soccer field. Bright field lights, early morning and late-evening play, noise, music and parking are among the annoyances they ascribe to the Costa Mesa-based youth soccer club using the complex. Vanguard last year entered into a 10-year joint-use agreement, with the option to extend to 20, with Pateadores, allowing the group to use the university's soccer field on Vanguard Way, said Kelly Kannwischer, vice president of university advancement.
