I went to Oakland Community College for a year and a half. The teachers are great, very helpful, and committed to having each and every student succeed! The campus police are incredibly kind. There was one time I had a tier fall off when I was trying to leave and one of the officers sat with me until my parents could come get me and then continued to stay and help when we were trying to fix the tier. He sat and helped us until midnight. Unfortunately the school in a whole is not very committed to keeping their sports programs. I ran cross country while I attended, I loved all of the coaches I had, but the person in charge of all the sports programs, did more for most of the other sports. For example, the softball and golf team both went on a spring break trip for "conditioning" to the southern states. Whereas, when the few of us on the cross country team who qualified for Nationals, were unable to go due to the school not having enough money for us.

I was lucky enough to have some great professors. The credits from this institution transfer to every school you would want to go to and they have a variety of courses to take and degrees and certificates to earn. They are located in multiple locations which makes it easy to attend school no matter where you reside. They also offer online courses and are in the process of expanding their online programs. They also offer courses for every semester so it's even easier to finish your general education credits and move on to a university sooner. They used to offer free printing everywhere but stopped a few years ago and raised tuition anyway. You can still use the free printing in the counselor's office. They have a nice sitting area near the school cafeteria which I regularly used while waiting out the long breaks between my classes. Community colleges have a bad rep, but this one is good and will help you go far with the right course of action.
I am giving Oakland Community College an "okay" rating for certain reasons that can hopefully be apprehended in the future. I enjoy the tutoring establishments and the cleanliness of the school showing that maintenance is key to having a great learning environment. I just don't like some of the professors. Especially the arrogant ones that believe rushing through a chapter of book we were suppose to be going over as a class. Alas, this is only a minor problem that irritates me and I believe it should be fixed for the newer generation of college students to fully enjoy their education and educators.
