5 College Junior

Student Body: The student body at college is one of the best in the county I live in. Some of the best parts of the student body are: hardworking, encourages students to participate in college life activities, and are willing to always bring the best to show what this college is all about.

3 College Junior

Student Body: OCC has a large amount of Asian Americans and Caucasians. The ethnic diversity isn't very high.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors at OCC care about their students and really know their subject. The chemistry department is amazing.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The transfer rate is really good and the counselors really care about you.

College Senior

Career Services: I have not used the career center because I am planning on continuing my education.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is extremely challenging, I have had to grow and learn to make sacrifices for my education. I have connected to many of my professors and have been presented with many opportunities. I feel like I belong to my school, and I am not just a face in a crowd. I would love to stay at OCC but I feel ready to take the next step to continue my education.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I believe I am receiving excellent education for the cost of tuition. I wish the english department wasn't so inflated.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: We have great campus activities; however, I do not participate in them because I have other responsibilities.

4 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is very diverse. I feel students are there to learn and do well and other students do not want to learn and are there to appease their parents.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had many life changing professors, I feel each professor has given the individual time that I have needed. They are very flexible with their office hours. I feel Orange Coast College has many options for classes, I wish I could stay longer so I could take every class. Fortunately I have only had only two professors that are just there for the pay check, every other professor has been incredible.

College Senior

Overall Experience: I have never been to our career center. I plan on continuing my education before I venture into a new career.

College Senior

Online Courses: I have not taken any online classes. I prefer to learn in a classroom.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: School is not convenient; however, it is my priority. I am about to begin the transferring process and I have many resources to help me.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I love my school, I am sad it's time to transfer.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Classes are difficult but it has prepared me for the future.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Most teachers and administration are very approachable. the benefit of a community college is definitely the faculty. They are available and willing to speak to students. They love to be approached in office hours and to see students sit on faculty committees. I love our faculty.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: This is an interesting question. If you are not involved, the student population seems massive, transient and nebulous. If you dive into student life, you will find that it thrives, but it's usually the same 200 people doing all of the work and having all the fun.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love OCC so much that I'm almost worried that my future transfer school will be disappointing in comparison. Of course, everything is what you make of it. The effort you put in at occ comes back on you 100 fold.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience has been straightforward and painless. I've never even had to contact them.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have no experience as I never take online classes because they do not transfer reliably and they are not compatible with my learning style.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Needs more political science courses however. Oh, we do have the only political science honor society at a junior college.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: OCC is amazing if you enroll in the honors program. It's typical of a junior college otherwise, but the transfer agreements with top schools if you're an honors student means you have an excellent chance of getting into a top school.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I haven't used these services so I can't offer an informed opinion.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It's getting better. I first came to coast fresh out of high school over a decade ago and it left a lot to be desired. Now however, there is constantly something new being built to better serve the students. More computer labs that are open to everyone would be helpful though.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are many courses and professionals available on campus.
