Review Oakton Community College
Oakton Community College is a great College, from their free parking, to their two very diverse campuses, their variety of work study jobs, great tasting food, and lets not forget their reasonable tuition prices. The college has two campuses, one located in Skokie, and the other, in Des Plaines. Having these two campuses is great, because a majority of the classes are offered at both campuses. To top it off, the teachers I have had experiences during my attendance there have been great. For one, they are very professional and are always willing to help outside of class time. And secondly, It seems as though they go above and beyond to make sure their students succeed. For example, I have had one Chemistry teacher that taught evening classes until 10:00pm, and despite class being over, he offered to review for a test at Dunkin Donuts after class since the campus itself closed at 10:00pm. This is a prime example of the desire the teachers at OCC have for their students to succeed.
Professors are willing to help out if you don't understand what's going on. They aren't going to let you slack off, but they will be understanding of personal problems if they get in the way of schoolwork. Although I have learning disabilities, I have had no problems at Oakton. Professors have been very understanding and willing to help me, knowing that I do my best and work hard. I've been able to choose courses that challenge me to improve and to learn how I learn, without overwhelming me. There is enough flexibility for students to find a path that both is achievable for them and challenges them to meet their potential.
I've enjoyed my experience at Oakton Community College (Des Plaines campus). Most professors that I have had have been friendly and care about their students. Teachers go the extra mile to make sure their students are successful as long as you're willing to work hard. My favorite part about this school is that the they surprises us with treats throughout the semester. In the past, we've had deep fried oreos, snow cones, coffee, and customized key chains for free. The school also provides many useful resources such as free tutoring and career counseling/advice. If I could do it all over again I would because I received a great education for a good price.
