Did You Know…?
Ohlone College remains the only community college in the United States named for an American Indian tribe—the Ohlone. Ohlone College's name honors the Ohlone People, also known as "the people of the West," who lived in the Fremont and Newark areas. The Ohlones were distinguished by peaceful pursuits, especially in agriculture, and they held profound reverence for the earth, believing it was theirs for living and not for the taking.
