Okanagan College is giving applicants, admitted students and parents the chance to explore its Vernon campus and the opportunities that await them there with a free event happening tonight (June 13).

With summer fast approaching and many people making their college or university plans for the fall, Okanagan College (OC) is inviting the community on campus.

Anyone interested in learning more about programs and life at OC is invited to attend You@OC Tuesday, June 13, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Vernon campus.
