The administration has made it somewhat hard for students to fit school into their daily lives—mainly because some classes you take at OCC expect so much more from you, even though you have work or other priorities that you have to take care of first. The administration at OCC wants you to succeed so much that they think that school should come first before anything else in life. While school should be your main priority, it should not be to the extent that you do not have any time to work or chill with your friends.
In terms of the workload, students at OCC generally encounter two eight-page essays that are due in the same week. In addition, some students typically encounter the stress of trying to get the class they need to take in order to graduate, since often the school only offers a particular course during a certain semester. Many face the pressure of whether they are going to graduate on time or if they are even going to graduate at all.
