Oakland Community College Reviews
I love the diversity of programs, people, and events. There are plenty of organizations to join, opportunities to get involved, and so much more! It's affordable, even if you live out-of-district. One thing that is a mixed blessing about the college are the campuses; there are five campuses in different locations in Oakland County, meaning you can throw a rock and hit an OCC location. The downside is you have to drive between different campuses to take different classes because each one has a specialization. Highland is Nursing and Medicine, Auburn Hills is STEM, Orchard Ridge is Theatre and Culinary Arts. Royal Oak and Southfield seem to be more for General Education.
Oakland Community College has a super friendly and inviting atmosphere. All of the professors want you to succeed and help you learn. There's free tutoring for almost all subjects and lots of handy seminars to attend! The community there is super inviting too, lots of clubs to join and events to go to. I would recommend OCC to anyone looking for a place to start their college career!
I personally think that Oakland Community college is a really nice campus, all of the campuses are really nice! I liked how the campus was small I would want to see better counselors who are willing to help you become who you want to be, succeed, and follow your dreams. I would also want to see better professors with that same energy and goal for the student body.
