Join OCCC students and faculty for an exclusive gathering at your local community college.

Drop in on program exhibits where faculty, students, and small business owners will be on hand to show you why 2,000 of your friends and neighbors choose to continue their education locally. Exhibits may include:

  • Demonstrations of how our nursing mannequins stay so healthy with a live reenactment of nurses providing lifesaving care;
  • Explanations as to why some fish jump more than swim during a behind the scenes tour of our Aquarium Science program;
  • Meet and greet with the stars… in the sky;
  • Hands-on science experiments that would make Bill Nye proud;
  • Free music lessons (with instrument included);
  • And much more!

Program exhibits will be followed by a gourmet buffet dinner catered by Side Door Café. The dinner program will consist of student experiences, Foundation insights, and a paddle raise.  All funds raised support local access to quality education through scholarships, program equipment, and faculty development.
