WHAT I LIKED

What I liked most about my experience at Oakland community college was that the classes felt more personal, and the teachers were incredibly accommodating and willing to work with their students on an individual basis. Every processor I had was proficient in their education skills, easy to understand, and offered opportunities for extra credit if needed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

What I didn’t like about Oakland Community College was the lack of community I felt with my cohorts. I don’t recall them offering any social events or clubs that fell under any of my interests, but the number of students on campus at any given time was limited so that may have been what contributed to the feeling of isolation.

The OCC is the college that gives the best opportunity ever with these academics.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is a college where you can get your finance application approved very quickly so you don’t stress about it.

WHAT I LIKED

I like the Royal Oak campus the most because it has all of the classrooms in a single compact building while managing to still be spacious. I also had great experiences with personalized classroom experiences.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are multiple campuses which can be confusing when registering for classes.

WHAT I LIKED

OCC is a really great place to take general education classes or to get an associate's degree. It's affordable and really great. The only thing is don't expect to have a social life because everyone keeps to themselves and it's hard to make friends.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like that there isn't much of a social aspect.
