Owensboro Community & Technical College Reviews
I began my college career attending another school. It was a very prestigious school and I attended for a year with little issues. My grades were fine, I had made a few friends, the classes and professors were alright. However, during the summer before my sophomore year, intense anxiety and depression hit. It grew to the point where I knew I would not be able to function in school. So, I took a year off. I knew I would not be going back to that previous college. Instead, I turned to Owensboro Community and Technical College. At OCTC, I found thought provoking classes, very kind and supportive professors, a beautiful campus, and kindhearted classmates. This was a place I could overcome my anxiety and continue my education. I left OCTC this past semester feeling happy and confident and prepared to transfer to a four-year school. I will forever be thankful for that.
What I really enjoyed about OCTC was how some of the instructors were actually interested in getting to know you and made sure you knew that they were available for help. The only thing that I didn't like about OCTC was that my guidance counselor didn't seem to care about what was best for me, she only cared about signing me up for classes.
My experience at Owensboro Community & Technical College, has been great because the school is not too big and it's easy to get around; also, i have got to meet new people around the school. There is nothing that Owensboro community & Technical College needs to change because it's all around a really great school.
