The school's corporate learning program offered the first wind energy technician program in the state in 2008, and it continues to be at full enrollment, he said.

OCCC also is noted for its film school. The school has a new visual and performing arts center and is breaking ground on a 1,000-seat theater this fall. The $16 million project should be completed by 2012.

Another of the school's claims to fame is its aquatics center. It has an Olympic-sized pool, which hosts area high school championships as well as the annual Mountain West Conference Swimming and Diving Championships that bring an estimated $2 million to Oklahoma City's economy.

Finally, the college's OKC-Go program offers free tuition to every graduate of an Oklahoma City or Western Heights school district high school, enabling these students to attain their associate degree tuition-free, Jordan said.
