Their annual events include: Fall Welcome Lunch, Holiday Party, Whale Watching, Desert Camping, Museum Bus Trip, Campus Focus, Theater Fundraiser and Spring Luncheon. The Oceanids' Interest Groups are the backbone of their organization. If you are interested in book clubs, day trips, bird watching, practicing your French or German, wine tasting, playing bridge, join us.
