I love this school! The instructors are very willing to help with homework questions when asked and most of them are very quick to replying to email questions. There are tutors for just about every subject with hours available and all the tutoring is free through tuition. I have learned so much going here that I am able to retain, not just memorize facts, since they do a lot of hands on learning activities. I feel I have gotten a wonderful education here and highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn. The campus is nice and has picnic tables in various locations which is nice to have lunch at and get fresh air between classes.

Central Oregon Community College is home to a lovely campus and a nice atmosphere, although it should be noted that the winter weather can make it especially difficult to travel there since the campus building is located on a steep hill. Most of the professors here are willing to work with students to help them achieve their goals, although there have been instances where it's felt as though the professor has no interest in seeing their students succeed, which can be incredibly discouraging. I live off-campus and thus have no experience with the dorms. Their cafeteria is about average in quality. The website is poorly designed and hasn't been properly updated in some time, making it extremely difficult and frustrating to find information.
First of all, Bend is a beautiful town with lots of opportunities for recreation. Because Bend is such a great place to live, it attracts a lot of well-qualified individuals. It is these individuals that make COCC such a great place to learn. The professors are all competent, intelligent, kind, friendly, and enthusiastic. Their classes challenged but did not frustrate. They did not hesitate in answering my questions or providing the help I needed. The same goes for the rest of the COCC faculty, such as my academic advisor. This not only makes for a comfortable learning environment, but also an academically sound one. COCC may be a community college, but it has everything a student could need--and because it's a community college, the tuition is far, far less money than anything at a university. In short, my experiences there have been completely positive, and I will always recommend it.
