I have had a wonderful powerful and spiritual learning experience! I've learned so much already about Christianity and the bible. I have learned excellent life skills such as financial freedom, Christian time management and so much more that I was never taught in my 22 years of living. The only negative aspect of OCU is the financial aid. The couple semesters I've been here it has been a hassle getting my financial aid situated. That is the only very thing I would love to change or improve in their system.

OCU was a very good college to start off in online. As far as a Christian university goes the curriculum was excellent and challenging. The professors are welcoming and assistive. The answer center has all the answers you could ever want. The finance department could use some work as there are charges after you leave and transfer so be carefull!
I love Ohio Christian University because of the people. I know and am friends with the majority of students on campus and it's great. We support each other, have meaningful conversations and get to know one another. The professors are also amazing. They truly care about you on a person level and want to see you succeed in everything you do. I have learned so much from my classes; that help further my faith and my career. I am so excited to start my career as a counselor and because of Oho Christian University, I feel prepared to serve my coworkers, clients and community effectively.
