Support – Las Vegas | Leadership Statement


On behalf of the Oxnard College Executive Team 

Dear Campus Community,

We know that some of you have been personally touched by the horrific events in Las Vegas. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the tragedy and we join the country in mourning their loss. The images from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history are difficult to view, and it’s even more difficult to imagine the pain and anguish being experienced by the families and loved ones of the victims. Oxnard College is committed to ensuring support and we encourage faculty and staff to be sensitive to students whose families and friends might be directly impacted by this tragedy.

The Student Health Center staff are available to students who may be in need of support or counseling. Services are available Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 pm, and Fridays from 9:00 am to noon.  The Student Health Center is located in the Student Services building and can be reached by calling 805-678-5832.
