Owens Community College Reviews
The instructors and administrators are incredibly kind and hard-working. It is evident they care about each student's success as well as their overall health and well-being. The smaller class sizes are beneficial, as students receive more personable education. I was in a specialized program at OCC, and the program was rigorous. There were many projects and group assignments on top of the quizzes and exams, which was often overwhelming. The instructors also did a wonderful job of themselves adjusting and then helping the students adjust to online schooling, due to COVID-19. The campus was smaller but functional and flowed. The campus sits more so by itself away from other buildings, but food places are nearby. Due to COVID-19, there was no campus food. I did not participate nor look into various student life events or organizations because I already had organizations I was involved in, but I know they offer various student life things.
I love a small College! However, the staff is not very helpful sometimes. For example, I called them over a week ago to ask about how to apply for an independent status considering I have been struggling to make ends meet on my own for 3 years. I have heard nothing back from the staff. I am trying to be able to afford to go to college next year and continue in my program but FASFA does not give me enough to cover my tuition. My dental books yearly are around $1000 and my dental kits are also around $1000. The program I am in is Dental Hygiene and it has been condensed down to only 2 years. You are forced to take summer classes in this program, which FASFA does not cover. Its so condensed that I am forced to take 9 classes or more a semester. Which it takes up so much of my time that I am literally unable work. My savings is running low and the only thing I can think of doing now, is filling out as many scholarships that I find.
All of my lectures and two labs were completely online, with one weekly on-campus lab and one hybrid lab. The instructors did a wonderful job of adjusting to online eduction due to COVID-19, and did a good job helping the students to adjust. They were flexible and always helpful. However, the amount of group projects/assignments I had to complete as part of the OTA courses was intense. Frankly, I believe it was unnecessary to have that much group work, especially in the middle of a pandemic. A group assignment here and there would be just fine and helpful, as the various groups does help meet other peers in the midst of online heaving schooling. But there was too much group work.
