Alongside the construction of the recycling facility, the college has also created 45 new parking spaces as part of the ambitious “Vision 2020” plan designed to create a safer and more convenient campus for students and staff to negotiate.

Orange Coast College is now home to more than 20,000 students with a high percentage looking to move on to four-year institutions.
