Oxnard College is a public community college in Oxnard, California. It has been a part of the Ventura County Community College District since 1975.[3] It serves the Oxnard Plain cities of Oxnard, Camarillo, and Port Hueneme. The college offers two-year degrees, including the California transfer curriculum, as well as career and technical education programs to the local community.

History[edit]

The first two permanent buildings were occupied in the fall of 1979. In 2002, due to the passage of the Measure S bond, Oxnard College received $129 million that would be allocated towards new buildings and renovations.[4] These newly acquired funds led to the creation of new building on campus such as Condor Cafe in 2009.[4] The campus also held dedication ceremonies for the new buildings, including a new Student Services building in 2009, a new Performing Arts building in Spring 2011, a new Library Learning Resource Center (LLRC) in June 2012, and a new Dental Hygiene building in 2016.[4] Some renovations that were also made to existing buildings were an expansion of classrooms in the Child Development Center.[4] This also included the renovation and expansion of athletic facilities which included a new track/soccer stadium, a new softball field, and upgraded baseball facilities.[4] In 2014, renovation and seismic retrofitting began on the old Learning Resource Center (LRC) building; the work was completed in 2017 and the building is now known as Condor Hall.[4] Oxnard College continues to be committed to developing a comprehensive educational program as well as a comprehensive campus environment for the students of its service area.[3]
