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.
Review Ohio Christian University
On a positive note, I have really enjoyed being able to take all of my classes online since I am a single mother who works full time. The teachers have for the most part been very helpful and easy to contact in the event I had a question or concern. OCU needs to work on how they handle academic advisors. It seemed at least once per year I was moved to a new academic advisor which resulted in my being scheduled for classes I had already taken or received credit for multiple times. The financial aid department is not the greatest at returning emails, nor keeping you updated in a timely manner regarding your account.
Enrolling in my school was an easy process. I had an advisor contact me through text messages since I work through the day and can't talk on the phone. Anytime I needed help with the process he was available to help. I work in the substance abuse field, and I have a history of drug addiction as well. Since I've started my classes, it has helped me communicate with the clients better and I'm working towards a degree in the field of study that is already a huge part of my life. I'm also receiving an education in scripture, which I love. The discussion board allows me to communicate with the other students in class, and I've been taught how to effectively communicate with my peers as well as staff. My instructor is easy to reach if I have an issue with an assignment, and she compliments the work I do weekly. Overall, I'm extremely happy with choosing this school and I would choose it again if given the chance.
