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.
The people are extremely helpful and anxious to help you achieve your goals. Being a 1st yr student it's difficult to comment on changes. The environment is safe and friendly, I feel positive about obtaining a quality education here at OCC. I feel the teachers here go out of their way to help you and help you discover your potential. I truly appreciate the opportunities offered to me here as this is my 1st college experience here in USA. My origin is from Africa, so I can appreciate the advantages and potentials for success through hard work and ambition. In conclusion, I'm impressed and convinced I made an excellent choice in this college and look forward to excelling in my chosen field of computer science.
