Oakton Community College is a great 2-year school to attend if you are unable to afford a 4-year university and you save a lot of money by doing so! In addition, it is one of the best community colleges in Illinois for students looking to go into science-related careers like nursing. The professors are there to support students academically and their interests. It\'s a great way to meet people and make some friends. They offer a variety of opportunities to get involved and even win prizes!
If someone told me they are planning to attend Oakton, I would tell them to absolutely go to this school. Community colleges sometimes get a bad rep because they are not actually universities or that they “don’t prepare you at all because they are too easy”. I would strongly disagree. I was challenged every semester and I have learned a lot from every class that I have taken. Some universities even pay more attention to those transferring from a community college because they know these individuals are hard workers but may have had some financial issues which prevented them from attending a university, like me. In addition, I would tell that person that they will only thank themselves later because just by attending Oakton for 2 years, they are saying SO MUCH money for the same type of knowledge. I had many of my friends return to community colleges after their first year at a university because they didn’t realize how expensive college could be. Lastly, I would tell them to take advantage of student life and join some clubs because you’ll meet so many people. Also, I would tell them to apply for any scholarships they would be eligible for to either decrease the cost of attendance or be able to take classes they really want to take, but wouldn’t be able to afford.
I like the Des Plaines campus it feels like a real college community. I like the classes and some of the professor. I think that financial aid help could be better. Overall the classrooms and students in the class are good. I haven't really been to Skokie campus but it is nice when I do go other to that campus. The feel is different from the Des Plaines campus but they are both still very good places to learn.
Oakton Community College has helped me grow as a student as well as a person. I have learned so many things about myself in the past 2 years then I have ever in my whole life. I was able to find my career and passion at Oakton and they also help me through any struggles I've had.
The campus is growing and improving as parts of the school is still under construction. The professors are considerate and helpful with your work. Classes aren't too large so everyone get a chance meet other students. Classes are affordable and financial aid benefits cover the cost the school well.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Oakton Community College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to take my classes more seriously. During my senior year I started slacking because I was very excited for all the activities coming, like prom, and my future in college. I would tell myself to keep pushing harder in order to get the best possible grade in all my classes. I would also tell myself to not stress so much about all the "drama" happening in between my friends. Many students often get side tracked by all the negative things going around in school, including myself, that they forget to just relax, enjoy and have fun their senior year.
I love how Oakton Community College is financially reliable. Most students barley pay anything, but the students that do pay never have any complaints.
I think that Oakton Community College is a great school in general but I would have to say that the worst thing about Oakton is the fact that people are somewhat antisocial. I wish that the school in general would do more social comitee gatherings and outings to bring the student body closer as one.
My school is a learning focussed facility with student binding experiences throughout the school year.
Any type of person can attend Oakton. Thats why I wouldn't change it, because it's not only for people who don't have the grades to get into a four year school. It's not only for people who aren't sure if college is for them. It's for everyone.
My school is known as being a great community college. Most people don't want to go to community college, but Oakton just feels different from other 2 year colleges that i've seen.
Nothing. The teachers are nice, there's plenty of lounge space, and more than enough computers to go around.
My classmates are very diverse group who either have a set goal in mind (getting a degree in the medical field) or are exploring their different options by trying different classes and finding what suits them best.
The best thing about my school is the small class rooms because it allows room for more disscussion, and you all build a stronger ralationship with your professor and classsmates!
Before coming to Oakton Community College I wish I would have known to look into all the amazing programs and activities Oakton had to offer. Although I did know about all the clubs I could have joined, I wish I was more aware of my major to decide which of Oaktons programs could have helped me to succeed. Deciding a major would definately be one of the most important steps before coming to Oakton to be able to look ahead to choose the best career path Oakton offered to become a more aware and goal-oriented student.
