Student life is amazing! I love all the people that I have come across and have gotten to know. Our campus may be small, but it makes you feel at home. Our athletics are doing extremely well. Our Basketball and our soccer have excelled and gone to state finals many times and everyone is very supportive. We are a growing campus with many more things happening soon. Recently we have gotten our new cafeteria and a few class rooms as well as a game room. Soon, we will be adding a new leadership center with a new auditorium and music building.

Great Experience, but Could Be Better – Ohio Christian University is a great school. I have learned a lot and find the classes challenging academically. My school is unique because of it's small size. I love knowing every face that I walk past! I had a great Freshman year of college; I was paired with an amazing roommate. I've had some personal struggles with one student in particular that has made my college experience a little less enjoyable, but I think that if I could do it all over again, I would choose OCU. The staff and faculty are the most caring people I have ever met! They work with you and want to help you succeed.

Enrolling in my school was an easy process. I had an advisor contact me through text messages since I work through the day and can't talk on the phone. Anytime I needed help with the process he was available to help. I work in the substance abuse field, and I have a history of drug addiction as well. Since I've started my classes, it has helped me communicate with the clients better and I'm working towards a degree in the field of study that is already a huge part of my life. I'm also receiving an education in scripture, which I love. The discussion board allows me to communicate with the other students in class, and I've been taught how to effectively communicate with my peers as well as staff. My instructor is easy to reach if I have an issue with an assignment, and she compliments the work I do weekly. Overall, I'm extremely happy with choosing this school and I would choose it again if given the chance.
