It's definitely a step up from high-school experience wise, but it’s a welcome change. Everybody is unbelievably kind and helpful and the school is very good at providing newcomers with information and opportunities. Their Resident Adviser staff are wonderful and always available for questions and a friendly face. What they’ve organized in housing only during the is very impressive and really helps bring a feeling of camaraderie to the school. The move in block party they held had stuff for everyone to experience and gather as a community. Because the school has housing there are people from all over the country. I’m from California myself, but my roommate is from Alaska and the school girl one house over is from Australia. The dorm style living is an easy transition here, given the updated apartments. This school markets “a four year experience in a 2 year school” and it really delivers that with a sense of independence and strong academic environment.

Overall, my experience with SOCC (Southwestern Oregon Community College) has been an excellent one. The campuses teachers, academics, and overall vibe are one that I welcome into my life with open arms. The teachers are always there to help when a student needs it and when they can't, the school provides a tutoring center where students can go and get help for free outside of class. The advisers are also a wonderful help, if you have no idea what direction to start your career, they know where to point you. The campus is also just the right size, not too big, not too small. All the students are welcoming to new freshman and the school even has a orientation day where all the new and existing students join out on the football field and play games and get to know each other. I would say that SOCC is a great place for nervous freshman or a person looking for a welcoming vibe.
As a currently enrolled student, I've enjoyed the online learning experience. The teachers, tutors, staff and admissions councelor have all been extremely helpful and communicative. They've effectively addressed all of my questions and concerns. The academic aspect has been suitably challenging and satisfying. The online learning platform is set up to be motivating, understandable and enjoyable. I'm pursuing a teaching degree and both the Early Childhood Education Associates degree and the Elementary Education Associates degree is transferable to Oregon State University, thereby offering outstanding programs. I continue to be excited to achieve my educational aspiration through this college.
