Orchard Ridge Campus
OCC’s award-winning Culinary Studies Institute is found on the Orchard Ridge campus, where members of the community often join us for a gourmet meal specially prepared by student chefs in one of our two restaurants. The Orchard Ridge campus is also known as the fine and performing arts campus, and offers visual and performing arts programs as well as several design programs. Throughout the year, the Wallace F. Smith Theatre offers cultural events, including theatre and dance performances open to the community and students.
Orchard Ridge is also known for its global outreach. The international student population and Orchard Ridge’s English as a Second Language (ESL) program, which includes special language study courses for non-native speakers of English as well as tutorial support, is the largest of all the Oakland Community College campuses.
