College of the Ouachitas Reviews
I'm a high school student that is taking classes at College of the Ouachitas on some scholarships that the college has offered through my school to get a head start on my basic classes. The class schedules were really flexible and I was able to fit them into my school day pretty easily. The professors that I have are among the best that I have, and I'm excelling in both of the classes that I'm taking (Freshman Composition I and College Algebra, which are both arguably challenging as fundamental classes). The school is fairly cheap as well, and although there isn't a large selection of programs, it's a great choice if you're looking to save some money on your basic classes.
I liked the fact that the coursework is rigorous. You will definitely have to use your brain when you're in any class at COTO. The atmosphere is calm, with very little student activity or engagement. Something that should change, is the student diversity. It kind of feels weird being in an non-diverse environment. This school , COTO lacks minorities.
At college of the Ouachitas the professors are very nice in many aspects. They have expectations of you but they dont make them impossible to accomplish. They push you to do your best in every aspect and give you the right push you need. They are always there when you need them. They will help you on anything in which your struggling in. It's a safe and friendly environment. All the student are nice and helpful. We have on campus other studies who volunteer there time to help tutor other studies which is a really good benefit because it helps a lot.
