Orange Coast College Reviews
Review Orange Coast College
My experience with Orange Coast College was one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life now that I look back to those years. This school took time for its students and the staff was always available to help. I now moved onto university and noticed a huge difference in the way students are treated compared to Orange Coast College. As a community college, there is much to experience with historic value. Modern art buildings, a beautiful modernized library with many opportunities, and not to mention, a Starbucks! Orange Coast college also offered amazing classes that helped me learn a little about what options I had to choose as a career if I was uncertain. Three years later and I still want to go back to the library to read, work in quiet peace, and to take more classes. Orange Coast College is what many think of a "Californian Orange County" typical community college. It is, and it is fun; anyone who attends will enjoy their school and learning opportunities at the college.
As an international student, it has been a pretty good experience for me. OCC is very diverse, it is located in a very safe place and only 20 minutes away from the Beach. The professors, staff, students -- everyone is very friendly, helpful and are always there for you. I thought I would have difficulty with studying and being away from home but I was wrong. I do very well in my academics while having a good social life and enjoying the college!
OCC is a good community college, however, it has some drawbacks. Professors are a hit, or miss. You'll find some courses that have awesome instructors and some like economics, history and higher math classes can be a headache; especially if you register too late for a good teacher and have to deal with 20-40 people on the waiting list. Additionally, there is an issue with professors talking politics and siding with students. This college is really just about going to class and going back home afterwards. Food, Internet and Social life are just meh. Counselors only know about CSU and won't be helpful for most anything else. The Honors Program is pretty cool, although I find it a bit stupid that you need to get two recommendations and a written essay to join.
