I have thrived at this school. It is a beautiful campus surrounded by nature and small enough to walk to all classes in only a few minutes! The small class sizes foster discussion and personal relationships with professors who not only know your name, but your story!
OCC is clearly dedicated to training young men and women for Christian ministry, and they do an excellent job at it. You learn more about God than you ever expected, you build lasting bonds with people who will bless your life (both students and professors/faculty), and you are constantly introduced to ways to develop your gifts, grow in wisdom and knowledge, and serve the world.
