I love my school! At Ozark you learn how to learn and be prepared for life in ministry. The staff and professors actually care about you as a person and it is a great environment to learn. The workload is challenging, but you learn so much.
I love OCC so much! The community is fantastic. We are surrounded by older, wiser adults. Every professor genuinely cares about their students. Each dorm has residence directors, affectionately referred to as "dorm parents." The dorm parents are good at making everyone feel loved. We are also put in mentorship groups so that people who have experience in ministry can help guide us through this time. The student community is also great. I love knowing that I can be friends with anyone on our campus because we are all united as brothers and sisters in Christ.
