4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The academic schedule is pretty darn flexible. There are a lot of times available, classes are small, and many wait-listed students make it into classes if they show up for the first week.

2 College Freshman

Career Services: I haven't dropped by the CAP center for anything other than testing and advising. They may be helpful, I'm not sure. Networking is poor and there just aren't enough high level programs for you to really be qualified enough for a great career.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some of the courses are solid but a lot of them have been painful to get through. Professors are hit or miss.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The only people here that have talked to me about career opportunities are car salesmen. Most of the booths that spring up are for political surveys or religious promotion. This isn't a place you go to make professional contacts.

2 College Freshman

Academic Experience: This is my main issue with COCC. Professors are all over the place. Ask around before you sign up for classes. I have taken a full schedule every term and am almost done with my second year. My experience here has been frustrating. The only teachers I've had that seem to teach with a passion are those in the psychology and music departments. Many of the students seem to be older folks coming back for a second shot at college and a lot of the younger ones seem like this is the only school they could scrounge up the resources/courage to attend. I've met some nice people but I think that younger students are going to have a really hard time connecting to their peers. This city has a lot of pot smoking ski bums and is pretty much beer town USA, for what it counts. It's a beautiful place to live but I'm happy to move on to new things.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I hope all colleges aren't like this. I started here at age 16 and most of my classmates could be my parents. The professors are hit or miss. I've had a couple awesome ones but quite a few more disorganized teachers, some of which have been very close-minded. If you're going here, it's for affordability and to be in Bend. Don't expect a first (or even second really) class education. For me, it's another hoop to jump through to get to the good stuff.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The only thing I have found is the required classes I need to take conflict with my major classes. I find I have to take classes that are very early in the morning so I can take the required classes. I drive 30 miles to school and in the winter it is going to be very stressful getting there safely.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall the professors have been very helpful but I have found that they are rushed to assist you with in class questions.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't had any experience with career prospects as of yet. I have had the chance to do some volunteering for events and hope to have the chance to do more.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I chose Culinary Art Associates Degree and I enjoy this program very much. However the math and writing classes I am required to take are still not clear why I must take them. I have lived a long long life and have not had the need for algebra or writing essays.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My first term I was a bit frustrated. I wasn't sure what to expect or what would be expected of me. It had been more than 40 years since my last school experience and felt as though I should have just known what to do and get done prior to my first day and when I called to get help the assistance I received was very short and limited. I have just completed my second term and feel better about the process.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school and it's a great, smart way to save money.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school & am going to be sad to graduate from my program. Definitely a great academic stepping stone!

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I'm in a hybrid program which incorporates face-to-face interaction as well as online material & it works for me.

2 College Junior

Student Body: People here are definitely focused more on their academics as opposed to the social aspect of college.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is much cheaper than a full-fledged university but it still adds up.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I haven't tried to contact career services so I have no real judgement.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The workload could honestly be a little more intensive for my specific degree program.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: There is a wide selection of courses available but there can always be more.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: COCC's staff is fantastic & passionate about teaching you everything you need to know in order to be successful! The campus is beautiful too!
