8 Ways to Get Involved at OCC (Today @ OCC resized)

1. Join a Club or Organization

We’ve got 20+ clubs and organizations on-campus spanning many different interests. Join one to have fun between classes and occasionally go on cool trips. Fill out our interest form to get more information on clubs around campus.

2. Run for a Student Officer Position or the Student Trustee Spot

There are 6 student officers who are elected to 1-year positions. These officers help plan college events, market those events to the community, conduct service projects and influence campus decision making. The best part: all student officers are reimbursed for their tuition. Elections for student officers are run every spring but come to one of our general assembly meetings every other Monday to learn more about student government.

You could also serve as our student trustee. This person will sit on the Board of Trustees (a group that oversees the President) and represent the opinion of the entire student body. Applications to run are circulated in the Spring but you can get involved early by coming to one of the student body General Assembly meetings every other Monday.

Fill out the online form and select either of these options for more info!

3. Takeover the Campus Snapchat for a Day

If you don’t want to make a long-term commitment but want a way to get involved for a day, consider taking over the college’s Snapchat. You can showcase a day in your life or highlight your involvement in a cool campus event. Either way, it’s a cool and fun way you can get involved for a day. Fill out the online form if you’re interested.

4. Apply to be a Student Ambassador

Do you feel passionate about being a Lazer? Then maybe becoming a student ambassador is right for you. You’ll get to take groups of prospective students on tours and tell them why it’s great to be a Lazer!
