OCC’s growing presence in one of Syracuse’s most impoverished areas is the topic of our monthly podcast, “Higher Ed News You Can Use from Onondaga Community College.”
Two years ago the college opened an office at the Southwest Community Center on South Avenue. The office is staffed by OCC Recruitment Specialist Flagan Prince. He has worked tirelessly to establish a presence there and a connection with the community. Prince has also built relationships with people interested in attending OCC. One of them is Rashawn Sullivan who is completing his first semester in college. Sullivan spent several years incarcerated before becoming a college student. He’s turned his life around and found a home on campus.
