To be accepted and truly welcomed is a wonderful thing.
. . . heartfelt gratitude for your guidance, faith, trust, example, sweat, and courage to bring OC into existence . . .
Walking into OC was like a breath of fresh air.
. . . Sometimes I feel like [OC] is my heart and soul.
I was encouraged to take the reins of my educational path and to explore and follow my passions.
I have no doubt that it is my experience at OC itself that stoked the flames of my . . . curiosity.
