The Emeritus Institute emphasizes the importance of volunteerism on campus, and is always looking to invite its members to get involved. Here are some volunteering opportunities for the upcoming academic year. To volunteer for these or any other OCC events, contact the Emeritus Office at 714-432-5707.


High School Senior Day

Senior Day offers a wonderful opportunity to meet the next generation of OCC students. Senior Day will be held during the Spring semester. Take part by lending a hand at the Information Tent, as a bus greeter, or as theater usher. For more information, contact Ed Cervantes 714-432-5197 or email him at


Welcome Days 

Help new students find their way around campus during the first few days of each semester.  We will have several tables set up around the campus with maps, information booklets, class schedules, and friendly emeriti to point students in the right direction!  Shifts available from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Call Ed Cervantes 714-432-5197 or email him at


Science Night

Community Science Night usually takes place in the Fall semester. OCC faculty members, K-6 teachers, and OCC students are involved in sharing the excitement of science at Orange Coast College with children and their families in a fun and educational setting. Emeritus volunteers can help and join in a great evening by assisting with registration, hosting honored guests, and visiting the labs and exhibits. To volunteer, please contact Scott Mitchell at
