Ocean County College is a great institution full of friendly staff members and students. I think one of the great aspects of O.C.C. is the flexibility. There are so many different time sections for classes which makes scheduling classes much easier. Also, the students are great people. I remember when I was finishing my last finals last year, and students were hanging out in the courtyard playing with a Frisbee. So many students that were strangers were brought together by just a Frisbee. The only area for improvement is having the deans ensure that professor’s syllabus includes reasonable material. For example, in one of my classes I was tested on material that was neither in the textbook for the class nor the professor’s power point slideshow. I believe that was not fair and if I knew any in coming student planning on taking that course, I would highly recommend the students to not take the professor I did.

Ocean county college was a pretty good school. It is very Affordable. Campus has some new buildings with more on the way and a very good new cafeteria/student center. Some of the professors were actually really good and knowledgeable. It is a community college, so there isn't much if any of the "college scene" and I rarely heard anyone talking about any sports or games while I was there. I was a business major, and I must say the have a very good team of instructors teaching all the business courses.
I've had such a great experience here at Ocean County college. All of the departments are helpful for the most part on situations that you may need to address. I would recommend this campus to anyone who's local here or maybe even taking online courses. I currently work full time, so I only have time for online classes unless i take a night class. I take my weekly module at my own pace during the week so I could get ample amount of sleep for work. I find many of the professors very helpful as well.
