Onondaga Community College has seen tremendous growth over the past decade. Heralded as one of the fastest growing community colleges in the country, OCC has shown a great increase in enrollment and an impressive list of new campus facilities and resources available for students. As the College continues to rapidly expand and improve, it is today more committed to student success than ever before in history.
Working in lockstep with the College, the OCC Foundation has also shown extraordinary growth. Today, through the generous support of our committed donors, the foundation is able to award five times the number of student scholarships than it did as recently as 2006. This is truly a proud accomplishment, and is a credit to every one of our caring donors. Whether they be alumni, faculty, staff, board members, businesses, or community philanthropists, each donor has shared our common goal – ensuring student success.
As the next class of students arrives on campus this fall, each individual eager to pursue his or her unique academic dreams, we take this opportunity to extend our sincere appreciation to you. Your support of students makes an important difference – a difference that will continue for generations to come.
