Onondaga Community College opened its doors 50 years ago to 500 freshmen at Midtown Plaza in the urban center of Syracuse, New York. The College moved to its present site in 1973, and is now situated on 280 acres on Onondaga Hill, four miles from the city. The campus is noted for its hills, wooded terrain and expansive views. Seven academic buildings house nearly 50 programs of study, which are supported by dedicated faculty and staff members who remain steadfast in their commitment to student success.
Onondaga Community College is a diverse learning community of students, faculty, employees, and all those who support community-based higher education for all. We inspire our students to acquire the knowledge, skills and dispositions essential to living well and becoming fully engaged citizens in their communities.
