Orange Coast College Hosts Famous Flower

When looking for a school to attend in southern California, Orange Coast College is a great option. Orange Coast College is a community college that is located in the heart of Orange County, CA. The school first opened its doors nearly 75 years ago and today is one of the largest community colleges in the state. Today, Orange Coast College has an enrollment of around 25,000 students, which include students from the Orange County area and other parts of the country. It offers a range of associate’s degree options, which then transfer well to four-year schools.

 

Overall, Orange Coast College is known for being a top school for both academics and junior college athletics. While it does have a good reputation overall, it has recently been in the news for a completely different reason. For the past few weeks, the school has been covered a lot due to the fact that it currently has a dead corpse flower, which is one of the most rare flowers in the world. The dead corpse flower is best known for its very foul smell that comes when it blooms.

 

What makes the dead corpse flower very unusual is that it is very rarely bloomed. While it can take months for the flower to bloom, it will remain bloomed for only a few days. Due to the rarity of the flower, and the short time period in which it is bloomed, the school is hosting open visitation for the flower in one of the admin buildings. People can now visit the flower from 10am to 6pm every day of the week. It will also be open until after 10pm when it is in full bloom. There is also a live web cam that allows you to view its progress.

 

If you are looking to see the flower, Orange Coast College is the best place to see it today. The school is currently allowing people in to see the flower for just a $3 fee. This is very similar to what Orange Coast College did in 2014 when they had the same flower. That year, more than 2,000 people came and paid to see it.
