Ocean County College Reviews
This school was very clean and welcoming, staff/professors were excellent and hands on to all student need. Recommend joining clubs make great friends and great of your resume. Food was so great and they really listen to what the students want to make their college experience great!
Overall, although I am merely a freshman at Ocean County College, the experience I am having at this college is phenomenal. All of the professors are very willing to work with students individually as long as the students also make an effort. The class sizes are small which makes it simple to engage with classmates and share ideas and opinions on interesting topics. There is always some exciting activity happening somewhere on campus which keeps the atmosphere full of life and enjoyable to come back to every day. The athletics department and all the coaches are very understanding when it comes to practicing or games interfering with class schedules and try to work with professors to create the best solutions possible. All in all, nothing about Ocean County College has disappointed me and I look forward to another full academic year going to this college.
I personally had a great experience as it was a nice transition from high school to the two year community college. This college is a 2 year in which I received my associates degree in Liberal Arts. This was the best decision I made after graduating high school, as I was unsure of what degree I wanted to pursue after my associates degree. I am alumni from Ocean County College and still keep in contact with a few professors I had. One thing I would consider is a social group of some kind for students within the same major to collaborate with one another and network for different job opportunities. I personally believe college is a great way to meet a variety of students/professors whom have knowledge in different fields/interests.
