Central Oregon Community College Reviews

I have taken a full year at COCC and I have had all good professors! Everyone is Bend is so nice and relaxed and makes the college feel more comfortable. The campus is really beautiful, and doesn't feel dated. It is pretty busy for a community college so parking can be hard but there is always a spot open somewhere, it just might not be right by your class. All the professors are super flexible and I have had a great experience so far at COCC.
I have grown up in Central Oregon so I might be slightly biased, but Bend is a wonderful community and Central Oregon Community College staff and students reflect this. As far as community college campuses go, COCC is beautiful. The Cascade Mountain range is the view from practically every building. A majority of my professors and instructors are more then qualified to be teaching their subjects and most chose to work as an educator at COCC because they want to live in Bend. There is definitely all four seasons in Bend, but to me this just adds to the variety of activities you can partake in. It is a short drive to Portland, the Cascade Lakes, Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Hood, and the coastline. Despite the stigmatization associated with going to community college, I wouldn't change the fact that I started my college education here. I believe the academics are the same in most circumstances compared to those of a university because the GE requirement courses for COCC and OSU-cascade GE courses are taught together. Essentially, you are getting the exact same education for a less expensive tuition rate.
I have a ton of human service type classes, counseling classes, health class, and various other and of course my prerequisites. We have a a wonderful and strict academic adviser who has ran the Addiction Studies program for like 12 years, She is very tough but would you want a whole bunch of drug counselors out there that did not learn the skills needed to be a good treatment counselor.It a highly structured program, it has a high workload lots of reading, research, papers, presentations, and attendance is graded. The curriculum is base off the necessary requirements to get your CACD 1. It has extensive classes that might have two to three more units to fulfill in order to get the skills necessary to go into the field. They have a an above average faculty for a community college and lots of extra circulars that have to do with career like Multi-Cultural training, suicide prevention, sexual assault awareness, and a Addiction Studies club that meets weekly, I will be starting my practicum next term they try to help place you if possible but required to have over 3000 hours of hands on experience to get your Associate's degree.
