With an understanding of Ocean County College’s (OCC) mission and commitment to its students, the Bellia team was closely involved in designing the Jon and Judith Larson Student Center to meet their objectives of creating an energy efficient, innovative, and collaborative environment that would enhance student success.
In its design, Bellia used collaborative seating and multimedia capabilities that encouraged conversation between students and teachers, this sleek and modern space makes it the perfect place for students to achieve their higher education goals.
Cafe and Coffee Shop
With crisp furniture lines, and bright, modern accents this state-of-the-art facility will attract new Ocean County residents to the campus while providing an engaging and inspiring environment for current students and staff.
Since 1969, Ocean County College (OCC) has been providing area residents the opportunity to attend the public two year community college. In early 2016, to accommodate the growing student body and attract new residents to the two year facility they built a 56,000 square foot, 2 story building named after Dr. Jon Larson and his wife, Judy, who have dedicated their time ensuring that OCC provides an enriching educational experience for all students. The stateof-the-art facility is a LEED certified energy efficient building that includes a cafeteria and coffee bar on the first floor. The second floor is home to the Admissions, Student Affairs and Student Life Offices and Activity and Club rooms, Conference Rooms and Student Lounge. OCC prides itself on offering a supportive and innovative environment where students have an opportunity for a new beginning, a chance to grow and learn, and a place to discover the world around them. The Jon and Judith Larson building is an example of how the OCC is embracing their space to help their students flourish.
