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 greatly enjoyed my experience as a student at College of the Ouachitas. The curriculum is easy to follow through and there are many student lead organizations that help you engage with others. Along with having a friendly staff and engaging classes, it is also an institution that is affordable in accordance with tuition and books. Also if one finds themselves struggling financially throughout the semester, they can visit the "COTO Pantry" and get the things that they need at little to no cost to them.
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.
