Mario Arias

Coast grad and music major Mario Arias will transfer to UCLA in the Fall of 2017.

When I was in 3rd grade, I performed my very first musical on the stage of Robert B. Moore Theater. I never once in my life thought that I would set foot on that stage ever again; it was like I was destined to be back at OCC once more. {When} I saw that stage, I was immediately brought back to my childhood.

Ryan Northrup

OCC alum and student veteran Ryan Northrup is headed to USC in Fall 2017.

I was involved in the Student Veterans Association — I was the Vice President and then took over as President. My one piece of advice would be to really apply yourself at school, 24/7, whether it be in class or extracurricular activities.

Kadi Ali

Transfer student Kadi Ali will head north to UC Berkeley in Fall 2017, and is hoping to eventually attend law school.

Being a part of ASOCC was by far the best college experience I have come across. One piece of advice I would share for incoming freshman is to BE INVOLVED. No matter how great your GPA is, if you don't network with other students and faculty, you will miss out on so many great opportunities.
