Message from Our President
Dear Friend of Ohlone College,
Since 1967, Ohlone College has been a key player in the economic and social vitality of the Tri-Cities, Bay Area, and beyond. Over 375,000 students have walked through these doors, and every year we award almost 1,500 degrees and certificates to students well-prepared to spread their impact across our communities. Ohlone College now ranks among the top community colleges in California.
This special 50th Anniversary year, we invite you to celebrate these successes with Ohlone College. We will reflect on the past, celebrate the present, and glimpse into the future of Ohlone College. We are proud to be a part of the Tri-Cities community, and we want you to be a part of the celebration. Your support of the Hilltop Gala will help us continue to push the already high standard of education that Ohlone College offers.
Gari Browning, Ph.D.
President/Superintendent of Ohlone College
