Oakland Community College Reviews
I've had an amazing experience attending Oakland Community College for the time that I've been attending. Every instructor I had were amazing and the counselors were always so willing to help me with almost anything. I love how they have multiple locations and I could attend/register for classes at any of them. I've been to the Royal Oak, Southfield, and Orchard Ridge campuses and I loved them all! Great school and i'm so glad I decided to go here before attending a 4 year college.
Oakland Community College is a great starter school for students looking to save money and get their gen-ed requirements complete before transferring to a four-year university. Academics are good. Most professors are very nice and caring, they want their students to do well. Student life is pretty diverse and growing rapidly. The campus food is better at some of OCC's campuses compared to others, but overall not too bad for a community college. There is no housing or party scene to comment on because this is a commuter college. Financial aid and the counseling office kind of suck. They are not very friendly and it can take a lot of time and quite a bit of fighting to get through to them if you come across an error or issue. That's the biggest annoyance that exists to be honest. Of course each campus is located right in the heart of each town so there is a lot to do and places to go with only a short walk or drive!
Oakland Community College is a great school for the first two years. I didn't think it would be great at first, but after joining the cross country team and starting my own club, I made so many friends. The school is so cheap and I paid close to $2,000 for 25 credits! It may not be a party school, but as long as you try to get involved, you will meet many people and make friends!
