Student Body: The student body at my school, Ocean County College (O.C.C.) is immensely overlooked for their diversity in ethnicities, skills, and talents in both the academic, and creative fields. Although O.C.C. is an underrated community college in Ocean county, I find it to be more than adequately resourceful for my needs.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was really unhappy about having to go to a community college after High School, but I am so happy I came to this college. OCC has helped me in so many ways that I will take with me forever. The professors are great, the student are very friendly, the work is reasonable, the resources are unlimited, and they are very open to suggestions.

The only thing I wish was different would be the financial aid department. It is ran by 19 and 20 year olds, they don't know a lot, and they can be rude. Also, I don't receive any scholarships or grants because my mom makes too much money for our household size (which is just the two of us) and I have trouble getting accepted for any loans. The only loans I have were only given to me because I was denied twice for federal loans. I'm not poor enough to get Aid and I'm not rich enough to get loans. I don't see myself being able to transfer to any school after OCC because I keep getting denied. I don't have any money for college. I wouldn't be able to attend without my subsidized/unsub. loans.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I did not take any online courses, so I can not rate or review this process.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Ocean County College has a very big diverse group of students. Diverse by race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.

The students are very kind and I never see any type of arguing, fighting, or bullying going on. Everyone is very friendly. I have met some great people during my time here.

Career Services: The career center has a lot of great resources that are open to all students. The staff is very knowledgable and helpful. I have gotten some great advice from them.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Ocean County College provides the students with many resources and have many more to come. Since my time at OCC they have made multiple improvements and they are still in the process of making more.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I don't feel it is fair to make students pay for printing. I don't always carry my wallet on me while on campus because I am there to learn not to spend money. I don't eat lunch on campus, so if I am in a rush to print out a paper and I don't have my wallet on me I am not able to print it out.

I have never had a problem connecting or staying connected to the internet at OCC.

If there is one thing I wish OCC did different it would have to be having computers and printers accessible in every room. The Gateway Building has multiple classrooms with computers and printers right in the room.

College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: This review does not apply to my situations at OCC

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The business professors are great, very knowledgable and passionate. The building is very modern and comfortable. Filled with up to date technology.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have had some unbearable professors at OCC, but it does not out way the amount of compassionate professors at OCC. I had recently suffered from the loss of my 6 year old brother and multiple departments of staff members have really helped me get back on my feet. I have met some really great staff members that have changed my life forever. Overall OCC is a great place to be and any student who is there willingly most likely would feel the same.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Not eligible for grants whatsoever

Ocean County College is like a roller coaster ride—along the way, students will endure many ups and downs. When students journey up the hill, they save money, encounter great professors, take a variety of courses and have their pick from a variety of majors, and participate in any of the more than 50 clubs and organizations on campus. In addition, OCC holds many events around campus and off campus such as the Spring Dinner Dance. Students will build many lifelong friendships, whether it is with fellow students or the professors.

When students journey down the hill, they encounter a few stressful situations, whether it's finding a place to park or registering for a class that they want. Just like on a roller coaster, there is a cart that has a front, a middle, and a back. The students who are in the front of the cart are more likely to be the ones to succeed; they are the ones who are involved on campus, whether it's playing a sport or joining a club. The students in the middle of the cart are the ones who may be unsure which path they should take. As for the students in the back, well, they're just there for the ride.
Overall, when the ride ends, you will have encountered many challenges, but it is nothing that you can't handle. As long as you come to OCC with an open mind and a willingness to succeed, then you'll do just fine.
