You won't find Das Millicanhaus on our average campus map. And that's because our newest residential facility sits some 5,350 miles east of campus in Vienna, Austria.
But distance doesn't make our 'Haus any less our home. Hundreds of students, employees, alumni, and friends of the university travel to Vienna's 9th district for mission efforts, research, vacation (!), and for OC's renowned European Studies program. And we love our new digs. Formerly Hotel Deutschmeister, Das Millicanhaus was dedicated in 2012 in honor of OC heroes, Don and Donna Millican, for their outpouring of passion, wisdom, and love on OC and our students.
I'm pumped to tell you that on this, our VERY FIRST DAY of Thrive, our $350,000 modest remodel for Das Millicanhaus has been funded. Done. It's celebration time in Europe.
Watch for more info as we begin construction later this year. Until then, keep reading up on everything Thrive and let us know how we can keep you involved!
