Israa Khaleel


Israa Khaleel feels right at home at OCC. Khaleel and her family left Syria for Iraq and eventually came to Syracuse. In 2013 she graduated from Henninger high school. Today she is a member of OCC’s student honor society, Phi Theta Kappa. Khaleel has excelled as a Mathematics and Science major and plans to graduate either in December 2015 or May 2016. “There are a lot of opportunities here. The teachers are very good and very helpful. The Learning Center is wonderful. Everything is excellent.”

Khaleel says majoring in math and science gives her a lot of career options. “Here in America there are so many opportunities, so many programs in the medical field. I will finish OCC then decide what direction I want to go in.” Khaleel plans to follow other family members into a medical-related profession.
