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!
Review Orange Coast College
My academic experience is great! I've learned a lot of new and applicable things to the real world. Homework, quizzes, and tests all have improved my way of learning and applying things to the real world. I am a sociology major and the teachers are awesome. I am taking most of my major courses this upcoming semester and I feel like it will be an awesome upcoming semester.
The entire campus, regarding the career prospective and degrees from this school, is very well acredited and acknowledged! All of the services and career center are informative and helpful.
