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.

Prince and Sullivan are this month’s guests on our podcast. You can listen to it by clicking here!

Enjoy the podcast and Happy Holidays from Onondaga Community College.
