Orange Coast College welcomed thousands of high school students to campus on Tuesday, March 3 for its annual Senior Day outreach event. Students came to campus from more than 30 local high schools representing 12 school districts, including Newport-Mesa, Anaheim Union, Garden Grove, Santa Ana and San Bernardino.
Students were able to go on tours of 17 different programs on campus, as well as gather information about the resources available to them, including financial aid, student housing, tutoring, priority registration and more. Application and online orientation workshops were offered, and a student club fair was held in the College’s Library Quad.
All students in attendance received a free t-shirt and lunch, and vendors like PepsiCo and Hubert’s Lemonade were on campus to sample their products.
Results from student surveys of the event show a positive response, with many students responding “yes” to “I am now definitely going to OCC” and “I am now considering OCC.”
This is the 37th year that OCC has hosted its Senior Day event, which is the largest recruitment and outreach event of the year.
