1. Join a Club or Organization

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


TOP OF STORY 2017-18 Student Officers

The new Student Officers are (front row, left to right): Clarence Shepard, Moise Laub, Breanna Cherchio. Back row, left to right: Samantha Stetson, Calli Giron, Leah Walsh, Michaela Capone.


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 packets become available in February in the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement in Gordon 104 or on our website.

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.

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

3. Takeover OCC’s 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.  Fill out the online form if you’re interested.

4. Apply to be a Student Ambassador
