I have attended Owensboro Community & Technical College since 2014. I am a 36 year old female that graduated in 1998 so you could say it had been a while since I have attended any schooling. I am the first person out of my family to ever go to college. I am a single mother of two kids that are my absolute world and are my support team. I can honestly say that with all the help with our Library and Teaching and Learning Center they have helped me to become a successful 3.5 GPA student that I am today. The professors here are amazing. They are there for you when you need help. The safety on our campus is also great. I never have felt unsafe in my school. I would definitely recommend OCTC to everyone that I know.
Review Owensboro Community & Technical College
Class registration is relatively simple, but the payment methods are horribly complicated. The financial department is hard to work with at times, too. The workload all depends on your professors, so you never know what you're getting yourself into. I take 17 credit hours each semester without any problems, but others complain about the workload. The curriculum is very dry and basic, and in most of my classes, I feel like I'm memorizing information and facts to regurgitate on a test instead of actually learning.
While I think there are some positives to this school, there are certainly disadvantages. Firstly, there are no security cameras on campus, and the security department in general is lacking. Secondly, the administration tends to treat students more like numbers, and professors can be inconsiderate at times. Thirdly, the student center is mediocre at best, the parking is horrible, and student activities are extremely limited.
