OCCC INTERIM PRESIDENT
DR. JEREMY THOMAS
We advise all our students to define what success means to them, and regardless of where you are in your life now, I encourage you to take stock of that as well. A degree or certificate from OCCC can certainly help you make more money and move up in your field, but where I believe we have all found the most value from OCCC is in those life skills, moments and lessons you’ll gain while you’re here: Kindness, generosity, resourcefulness, stewardship, leadership, empathy, healthy relationships, life-long friends, great memories, and an exceptional college experience.
Your goals are unique. And we’re here to connect you with the tools, resources and support you need along the way. Click to view some of our most-used community resources and links.
