Introducing the New Orange Coast College Planetarium: Paving the Future with a $1 Million Donation

The Orange Coast College staff never expected to receive a substantial $1 million donation from a retired professor. Mary McChesney, a retired English and Spanish instructor who had previously taught numerous students, recently donated $1 million. Her donation is intended for the funding of the future planetarium's Foucault pendulum used to count the Earth's rotational cycles. College officials stated that the pendulum is a novelty item in Orange County.

Orange Coast College has had a strange resident living on its campus for more than 10 years. Little Dougie, an Amorphophallus titanum plant, has been at the school since 2006. However, people made a big stink about it when it bloomed this past June.
