Ozarka College Reviews
This college is in a small town in the Ozarks. From humble beginnings this school has come so far. I can't complain about my experience here but there are some things that I wish were different. I do not think the classes prepared me well for transferring to a University. I think that the curriculum was a bit elementary and very easy to pull high grades. I also wish there were more diversity (there was not even a foreign language offered.) I think it is important to have different types of people and experiences in college and I can't say that Ozarka fufilled it. I also didn't feel like I was part of anything. This school is just where I went to learn and right when my classes were over I left. I didn't hear about any clubs or organizations and I didn't see any participation either. I think it would be in the school's best interest to encourage their students to interact a bit more, even if it is just a student/teacher appreciation day!
The teachers spend time with you and teach in a way that you get it. If you still don't get what is being taught, they will put it in different ways till you get it. If you don't want to bother the teachers further, there are numerous tutors on campus that will help you with whatever class you are taking. I love that in everything you do, the teachers and the staff encourage you and they don't really feel like teachers, but your friends. They help you to build/choose your career field if you are still undecided, and they also help you to transfer to other universities gradually, so when the time comes it is not a hassle for you. I would like to see more clubs and activities to get students involved more, other than that, the school is great overall.
The school is nice in general. They offer a variety of majors. I was in culinary school and enjoyed my first year, however my second year was very unorganized and teachers changed multiple times. I felt that the program could use some work.
