Academic Flexibility: Professors are willing to help out if you don't understand what's going on. They aren't going to let you slack off, but they will be understanding of personal problems if they get in the way of schoolwork. Although I have learning disabilities, I have had no problems at Oakton. Professors have been very understanding and willing to help me, knowing that I do my best and work hard. I've been able to choose courses that challenge me to improve and to learn how I learn, without overwhelming me. There is enough flexibility for students to find a path that both is achievable for them and challenges them to meet their potential.

Online Courses: Online courses won't teach you as much. If you have the discipline to keep up with the work, they are a good way to fit required courses into your schedule. I would recommend in person classes for areas that apply to your major or that you are more interested in learning more about though.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall, the courses are very informative. Most professors are great teachers and very helpful. There is a wide variety of courses, including several foreign languages. Most classes are lectures. Class sizes are pretty small for college -- the most students I've had in a class has been about 30, and in some of the less-taken classes there can be fewer than 10.

Overall Experience: Oakton is a community college, so a major value of the degree is in transferring your credits elsewhere and saving money. An associate degree on its own isn't going to give you too much of an edge, but Oakton has a good reputation and is a very solid start.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Before Oakton Community College , I was a lost soul counting down the days,hours, and seconds until I graduated my high school. Oakton helped cure my damaged self esteem from the choral teacher and other teachers at my high school. I was encouraged to follow my dreams , and take chances in order to achieve my dreams. Many members of the faculty that I worked for and with are my life long friends. Oakton is a place for growth and a place to reinvent yourself. Oakton has many scholarships and opportunities to get involved. The students here are diverse and are very accepting. It is going to be hard for me to leave this place , because of all the positive things Oakton has to offer.
