College of the Ozarks Reviews
Review College of the Ozarks
College of the Ozarks is a 4-year private Christian college that allows students to work on-campus to cover all of their tuition fees. As a student, I am truly grateful for the program in this college and I believe it accomplishes to aid many students in financial need. However, I believe certain rules and regulations this college set is holding students back. The college needs to better prepare students for the "real world" after college by exposing students to more diversity. College of the Ozarks needs to better serve their students from all regions of the world and in all aspects of college life.
The college had its ups and downs. Working for tuition was great, graduating debt free was amazing. The teachers were all astounding, there were very few who were not just amazing teachers. Campus life was mediocre, offering some athletic prowess, and offering lots of groups, which not very many people had the time for, due to school and work. The politics of the college was the worst. The administration failed to make college enjoyable through policies that only satisfied the ones who donated to the college. Liabilities, such as a girl with fish allergies, are treated poorly. That girl was sent to work directly with fish at the Keeter Center, and became ill. That girl was later dismissed from college because she was a "liability." C of O also discourages marriage by not investing in married housing, diminishing commuters, and flat-out telling students that they should not get married until they graduate.
College of the Ozarks is a wonderful school! I am able to get a Bachelor's Degree by working for it. Otherwise, I would have had to go to a Junior College. My professors truly care. The work load we have at our school is an adequate amount, but we still have plenty of time for our studies. Working at both C of O and my off campus job makes me aim to have efficient time management. Our supervisors here are great as well. They demonstrate Christ-like character, and our professors do as well. I know for a fact that if I needed any kind of help at my school I would have several people lending their hand to me. That is the best feeling to have at a college.
