Overall Experience: This is my first year of college and I was so nerves about going back to school but they were there for me for the whole process.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Sign language department has the most amazing teachers and they are very friendly and helpful. However, past English and Math teachers I have had have been okay but not interesting. They were boring and often rushed through material to get out of class and rarely answered questions. The amount of programs at OCC vary by location but the class sizes are generally 20-30 students. It is nice to have smaller class sizes to have easier access to your teacher and peers.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Sign language program prepares students well for the future by organizing hands on experiences every week. Sometimes it's homework, tests, Deaf events, or meetings.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The school is great for my program. The school itself has small class sizes and is a comfortable atmosphere. The program has fair amounts of homework to help better advance us into our future careers as interpreters. The level of difficulty is continuing to increase throughout the program because of how hard the career actually is. The last semester of the program is an internship that places you in the type of interpreting atmosphere you would like to work in which is very beneficial.

Overall Experience: I love Oakland Community College for my Sign Language Interpreting Degree. The program was recently accredited and the teachers have worked so hard for the program to be successful in creating future interpreters.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: So far the great registration process for selecting courses has worked perfectly for me. It allows me to plan my schedule out for the semester months before the semester even starts. The ONLY downside to this is the teachers arn't as happy with you missing class for pre-planned commitments like family vacations or other "can't be moved" plans. It could be a problem for me if I end up getting financial aid since if I miss 3 classes over the entire semester I have to repay back the aid. It would be very helpful if they had "make up days" or allowed students to come in on a different class day to make up for lost days.

Online Courses: They are great if you are motivated and can stay on top of your work load but if your a procrastinator this may not be the option for you.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have taken 3 classes, and those have been GREAT - very good professors / teachers. A great environment to work in and learn in. The teachers treat you like adults and know that you have "better" things you could be doing but instead are paying to be apart of their class so they try to make it interesting and not overload you. The classes are pretty small and there is PLENTY of courses offered and different class times to make it possible for anyone to attend. You can come in at 7AM or at 7PM depending on your schedule.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think getting a degree from a community college is a good thing to get but it's not so much about getting the degree as it is about learning what you need to know to be successful in your area.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: So far every teacher I have had here at OCC is teaching topics from their personal lives. They lived what they are teaching - not just reading it from a book - therefore the topics are more interesting and you get more out of the discussions. I am learning alot.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like being a student at OCC, I think it has a great environment with an 'easy to get along with' staff. My first time walking into OCC I felt scared having never been inside a college before but as soon as I talked to the academic counselor I realized this is where I needed to be and felt right at home. Very friendly and cozy environment.
