Student Life

There’s more to college life than attending classes and studying for exams. It’s also important to meet new people, explore your interests through clubs and other activities, or even take on a leadership role. That’s why Oakton Community College offers an extraordinarily rich array of opportunities to stay active, healthy, and engaged.
