The professors do a wonderful job of connecting with the students by combining uplifting humor and a positive academic drive to allow everyone to be successful in understanding the material given. If you ever need help during class or wish to ask a question personally, classmates are kind, humble, and do what they can to provide an answer to whatever you're troubled with. Since a lot of my classes are spread out one day a week, it's harder to create friendships like you would having a dorm on campus, but it's not impossible. This place is fantastic for transfer students, freshman, and anyone that wishes to muster extra credit hours wherever you are academically!

Confusing at Times – I am going into my second year at OCC and attaining an Associates Degree to be transferred. The whole process of checking to see if my credits transferred and meeting with councilors was a hassle. The first councilor I met with did not explain things well and seemed to just kind of want to get me out and move on to the next person. Even when I asked questions, she seemed almost disinterested and when I tired to figure things out on my own about transferring it was totally confusing. Luckily I did meet with a different councilor who was SO helpful! This time, all the questions that I had were answered and she even showed me on the webpage of the other college I want to transfer to, what credits from OCC that I have/will take will transfer and count. Overall, the experience concerning convenience was ok. They definitely can improve but I did get a good councilor the second time around.

So far my experience at OCC has been great. It's my first time at a community college and I've been happy with 75% of my professors. The ones that have been below my expectations have not engaged well with students, have presented their information dryly or without fluidity, and/or have been slightly preoccupied with other classes. But for the majority, my professors have been great! The campus itself has pretty solid administration and my answers are always met, whether financially or with scheduling.
