College Does Not Endorse Door-to-Door Magazine Solicitors
College of the Canyons officials have received notice from some local residents that solicitors, representing themselves as COC students, have been going door-to-door in Santa Clarita Valley neighborhoods allegedly selling magazine subscriptions and claiming that sales will help them defray the high cost of college textbooks.
The high-cost of textbooks has been at the center of a multi-year debate about the skyrocketing costs of going to college and has been the topic of numerous press reports locally, statewide and nationally.
College of the Canyons wants community members to know that it discourages its students from going door-to-door for any reason and residents need to know that this activity is not endorsed by the college in any way.
