Ozark Christian College Reviews
Being a freshman in college in another state seemed terrifying to me, but Ozark is strong on the aspect of community. It did not take me long to find a group of friends to connect with. Very quickly the school gave me connections to the outside community like churches and different volunteer opportunities available. Ozark loves connecting and serving people. Being at Ozark has given me a sense of belonging and purpose, even if I do not know what I want to pursue in the future. The love I have experience here at this college is unlike anything I have ever experienced, and for that I am truly grateful.
Judgemental hypocrites that don't know how to mind their business. The love of money is more important than the student.
Ozark is a wonderful Bible-based college. I have complete respect for their values and rules. It is a great environment to be in as a college Freshman!
I seriously love Ozark Christian College. The professors display great care in the students and their education, and go out of their way to help is excel. I feel challenged daily to shape my character to look more like Christ. I never consider leaving Ozark.
It is a very safe campus. I haven't heard of any crime happening.
The student body loves to show support of the sports teams.
What makes Ozark Christian College unique is that the student body is so close and friendly with each other.
We learn so much here. Most of what we learn is related to the Bible or ministry, so it is easy to be passionate about studies. The workload is a lot, but we learn so much.
We are not a very diverse campus and the administration is aware of that. Scholarships are offered to encourage more racially diverse students to attend.
We do not have a problem with drugs and alcohol at Ozark. If you partake, you will probably be kicked out for a semester or two.
There is always a security guard on campus, but there is not much for them to find. I have not heard of any serious crimes.
Professors are passionate about what they teach. They all have different styles and I click with some better than others, but all of them are great. We generally have smaller classes, which is great for classroom discussions. The workload is a lot and kind of overwhelming, but we learn a lot and the professors are gracious in their grading.
There are almost always people on campus recruiting Ozark students for jobs. Sometimes, they are recruiting for a summer position or internship and sometimes they are looking for full time positions. Some people specifically want Ozark students because they know we are hard workers.
The dorms at Ozark are not known for being fancy. The rooms are functional. The physical property of the dorms are not the highlight of dorm life. The highlight of dorm life is the people. Dorm living keeps you surrounded by Christian community. On this small campus, the dorms are also close to everything.
Greek Life is not a thing at Ozark. To be honest, I don't even know what Greek Life is. But people do learn Biblical languages here, which includes Greek. I think it is way cooler to learn Greek than to identify yourself with three Greek letters.
Honestly, I don't care about sports. Other people do and that's great, I just never have. That being said, what I know about the athletic department is that teams are a great opportunity for community. I have never been to a game, so I don't know what game attendance is like.
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.
Ozark, being a Bible College, does not have an issue with Sexual Assaults. We have a campus security guard who’s main concern is keeping long boards off campus.
The professors, courses, and classroom settings cultivate a learning experience I have never experienced. I do not feeling like I’m chasing a degree. My first semester here I gained more knowledge and learned more about myself than I did my entire high school career.
The networking involved with this school is not comparable. Alumni stay plugged in and job offerings are everywhere. Even while still in school, students are offered jobs in there field, where they can get hands on experience and have an income.
