Northern Oklahoma College Reviews
My experiences at Northern Oklahoma College were great! The professors were amazing at what they taught. They challenged each student who took their class, yet would help each student that was struggling. The college campus itself is small enough to get around easily. The only downfall to this campus and probably every college campus across the United States is that their working budgets have been drastically cut over the last four years. The amount paid per class is much lower than what is paid in the universities and other colleges throughout Oklahoma. This allows the student to get their basics out of the way and they can focus on their undergraduate courses after they graduate from Northern Oklahoma College. In the future for this college, I would love to see the funds returned so that the programs which have been cut could be restored. I would love to see the Roustabout program create their own museum to share with others the rich heritage which began in the 1960s.
Good value. All of the faculty have been kind and generous, and the learning environment was great. The class sizes are small at the OSU gateway, and I recommend going there to get more personalized help from professors if the student has the need. Some of the narratives and framing by the bearded social science professors was irritating, but overall my two semesters were overwhelmingly positive and I enjoyed all of my classes. I would go back there to do most of my major credit hours, if possible. I enjoyed the small school environment and the class sizes were very comfortable.
I am not a huge fan of online classes. I have taken online classes in the past and I never really feel as though I learn very much. When classes went online this semester I was pretty disappointed. I still don't think online classes provide the same learning experience that in class does. However, I do think that all the professors did their best under the circumstances to teach their students as best they could.
