  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Student Grade Reports/Transcripts?

Your student will need to contact the Registrar's office
College students' records are protected by the Family Educational Right and Privacy Act (FERPA). It restricts institutions from releasing grades and other educational records without the student's written permission. Students may view their grades online through the Self-service system after grades have been submitted and recorded by the Registrar's Office. Otis does not mail grade reports home.
