Take Flight

Hey Eagles, you’ve been admitted! Now choose a one-day Take Flight event designed for new students and parents. You will cover all of the business of college from tuition to housing to food and get answers to all of your OC questions.

Earn Your Wings

It’s time for you to soar. Earn Your Wings is when you learn what it means to be an Eagle. Your orientation week will be filled with getting to know your fellow newbies with one crazy themed activity after the next, serving the community on Kite Day, learning OC’s history and becoming a part of it, enjoying some quality entertainment and implementing daily habits of worship.

Focus on Freshman

Picture yourself on stage for Freshman Fanfare, the first show of the year that involves everyone from the new performer to headline acts. Rally for all of the Homecoming activities as a member of the Freshman Club. Established in 1950, it is the longest standing club on campus. And, sing and dance your way into the most fun you’ve ever had in the annual Spring Sing show.
