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.
Review Your College
I liked having the option to go here before going to a four year college. Doing so I was able to save some money by attending here first. I thought this college had a good variety of classes to choose from, and I was able to take my core courses that were transferred to my next school. The only problem I had with this school is the fact that because Ocean County College partnered with Kean University the Kean Ocean location does not have lower level classes to choose from. As to not incite competition between the schools Ocean have the lower level classes, while Kean does not so Ocean can still maintain a substantial student body. However, if a student did not take take a certain class that is not available at Kean Ocean they have to take it at Ocean, whether it is to finish their associates degree or fulfill a transfer requirement. Other than this discrepancy I found Ocean County College to be fine school.
I like how I was able to come in with no problem. I have a lack of comprehension for English and I was able to get a tutor through Student Support Services. Student Support Services is a group of people who help students, like myself, who have placed into remedial classes like I have. SSS helps with support, too, if you are the first one in your family to go to college, like me. They really help with a lot. I honestly love it. I'm glad my dad pushed me to go to college, and I'm happy I was able to make friends easily. I thought I was going to see everybody from high school, I was wrong.
