5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It was very easy for me to build a schedule to fit all my classes in. There were many night courses and weekend courses for people who were busy during the day or week. I had a few electives that I had to transfer from a different university, I had to fill out a form and send it in and my credits got transferred within the week. I have never had any problems with acedemic flexibility.

Overall Experience: For a student that didn't exactly know what she wanted to do when she started college, it was a good place to figure it out. The classes were cheaper than any other place around, it was easy to apply and talk to someone and the teachers seemed to care more about how we did individually than professors at other colleges that my friends attend. All my teachers know me by name, they have time for us to ask questions and office hours to visit them if we need help. I feel that any student could have success there if they are willing to try hard enough and care about their future enough.

Overall Experience: All the courses I have enrolled in are challenging in their own way. Some classes like my composition classes, require a lot of time for research and practice while my classes like anatomy are memorization and following the way systems work. My professors are very educated in their area and are good at helping the students learn the information. There are many courses offered but it always seems like they are offered at the same times, making a schedule for a semester can sometimes be challenging. The classes are all relatively small, the largest class I have been in only had 28 people, which allows the teacher more time to help each individual if needed.

Overall Experience: The highest degree you can get at Owens is an associates degree, as it's a two year school. Many of the programs are job oriented, like the students get trained under a company like CAT or they do clinicals at actual hospitals for nursing and dentistry. I have heard of very high success rates for students who attend certain programs where there is a need for that job. There always seems to be college recruiters on campus but I have not really seen any employers recruiting on campus.

Student Body: Most people who attend Owens live off campus and commute to school. There are a lot of activities available to participate in but a lot of the students are working full time, raising families or starting families and have other commitments to attend to. Most students come to class and go home. The student body is very diverse, people from the greater Toledo area all come here for good education. I think going to college is about learning and accelerating your career, some students only care about having fun and that's where people go wrong, they care all about the wrong things. I have a few friends in my classes but outside of class I don't interact with anyone from the college.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is a smart alternative to going to a larger university where tuition is at least double or triple that of Owens Community College. I have two friends who go to larger universities and struggle with classes and work load more than I do and they are paying more than I am. There are a lot of opportunities for financial aid and scholarships, people just need to go out and look for them. All the credits I am earning are transferable to universities around where I live and into the program I want, I'm getting the same education for cheaper. The financial aid office has helped me so much and is always willing to answer questions I have.

College Junior

Career Services: I am about to complete my first year as a college student in two weeks and have not had any experience with the career center and alumni work, I don't know enough about it to give it a good or bad review.

Academic Experience: My major at the moment is Generalized Science. I knew I wanted to go into the medical field when I started taking classes at Owens Community College in the fall of last year, but I wasn't sure what field I wanted to go into so I chose the most science oriented associates degree to enroll in so the credits for classes I took would still transfer and qualify for another major. I decided last month to go into the college of Nursing at the University of Toledo, but am still taking all my prerequisites at Owens CC because they are cheaper. I have taken biology and anatomy classes as well as composition and math classes. I do homework every night for at least 1-2 hours, I am getting lots of help from my instructors but a lot of the learning I have to do is on my own at home. The material has a lot of minor details that are necessary for my future job and a lot of useful information about how the body works and how it works in its environment.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Owens offers a lot of help to those seeking it. They have lab hours open almost every day of the week and at very convenient times for all subjects. I have only encountered professors who care about their students' grades and success. It is easy to register for classes and talk to advisers.

Campus Resources: I attend Owens Community College in Perrysburg, Ohio. I felt it was a good stepping stone between high school and a university; they have small class sizes, easily transferable credits, lower tuition rates and a generally smaller school that I feel is there to help their students succeed. I have never had a problem with any of the professors or advisers and would recommend my friends to attend this 2-year college as well.

College Freshman

Career Services: I am still currently enrolled at Owens and I have not talked to anybody about moving on after Owens yet.

Academic Flexibility: I have not had to deal with transferring credits yet, but I plan on attending a university in North Carolina after here, and I will experience credits transferring then.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the environment of Owens Community College. It is a step up from high school, but not quite the setting of a university.

Overall Experience: All college professors have a different style of teaching. It is up to the student to adapt and buy into their ways of teaching. I have not had any horrible professors yet, just different teaching styles, and some styles I am not used to.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many helpful services on campus to help students succeed and move on if they wish. There is Oserve for financial aid, transfer advisers for students who wish to move on, and academic advisers for help scheduling classes.

College Freshman

Online Courses: I have not yet taken an online class here at Owens.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: There is great diversity at Owens Community College. My school is accepting of everybody, and this makes for a great environment.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Currently, I am on a full-ride scholarship for softball. Next year I do not plan on playing softball so I will need to apply for financial aid, scholarships and grants.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am declared as pre-nursing concentration and all of my classes so far have been good.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Most of my professors have been very helpful. My anatomy class was hard to keep up on, but was not too bad.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Oserve is great, they are very helpful and knowledgeable.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Some of the professors are good, but there are some professors that are rude toward some of the students.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are a large amount of job opportunities at the school. In addition to that, the school has an alumni network.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The professors tend to be very willing to help the students succeed. I have heard that it is fairly easy to transfer credits, but I wouldn't know much about that as I have not transferred yet.

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't gone to the career center. This is because I was going to college while I was still in high school and was so busy that I didn't go and get a job on top of that.
