Owensboro Community & Technical College Reviews

167 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.

There’s no doubt that Community and Technical colleges are often considered “less than”, but for me OCTC has allowed me to attend college full time as an adult with a full time job and family with very little cost. The professors I’ve had have all been outstanding and I’m looking forward to the opportunities that attending this school will afford me in a year from now.
I like how the campus is small, so you get one on one time with your professor. The professors at this college seem to care more about how you succeed. You meet different people in your classes that may not be from the area you live in. I also like how you can do on campus and online. I think the college needs more activities, so people will get more involved with school and not just show up when they need to.
