Back To School Bash

Back to School Bash

Welcome, students! We’ve got lots of events planned for your first week of classes, and we can’t wait for you to join the fun. Are you following OTC on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat? You’ll want to share, tag, tweet or snap your back-to-school photos at us all week long for a chance to win prizes. Oh, and if you’re a Snapchatter, be sure to use our OTC filters. Just take a photo in Snapchat, and swipe right to find our filters when you’re on campus.

Check out our Back to School Bash events below, and make plans to attend between classes. We’ll see you around the college!
