What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakton Community College is safe place for all students with a variety of students in attendance from different ethnic and religious backgrounds. Oakton Community College wants students to get involved as much as they can and take advantage of the many opportunities given to them. Since I have a science background, many of the anatomy and microbiology teachers wish to prepare you for healthcare fields, therefore, they try to connect certain material to what one would see in the real world. This type of application is what I admire the most in my biology professors. Most professors that I have at the school are understanding about familial situations and work. The class sizes are mall which allow for more discussions, opportunities for questions, and one on one conversations with the professors. There is the Learning Center for students who need extra help as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professors are generally very helpful. Since there are smaller class sizes, they are able to reach out to students more and offer focused attention. Also, it's a well funded community college. Great for people who want to continue their education but not at a university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Oakton College has been a good school for me to start off with college because at first I was undecided so I chose to come to Oakton to get my 2 years out the way so that I can transfer to a 4 year school in future. The staff was friendly, and helpful and the environment felt safe as I was in campus most of my day because of the extra curriculum activities I was involved in such as soccer, phi theta kappa club, and weight training.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very great school. Two campuses are available for students in two larger suburbs of Chicago. The Des Plaines campus, the larger of the two, has magnificent teachers, students, and programs. The Skokie campus is smaller, more convenient, much quieter and less chaotic, as well as having a plethora of usefull resources. The two schools are also rich in diversity; there are many students from many different backgrounds who all work towards success. It's a very civilized and wonderful school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school it was a good entry level school to attend. The people are nice, the professors want to help you succeed and the classrooms are large in size. The only thing i would change is the fact that for the nursing program students must become a CNA before continuing with the nursing program.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Thera is pro and cons in going to a community college Pros are that it is cheaper than a 4 year and that you save money on housing, food, and other essentials of living, fewer distractions. That there is a smaller class size. Consis that you aren't getting the full college experience and that you are not able to make a lot of friends.That there a lot of unmotivated people going there.That there isn't a lot of things to do a community.It is difficult to transfer to a 4 year college.That there aren't a lot of clubs and that there aren't a lot of extracurricular activities

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great place to get your gen eds done for a more affordable price. The class sizes are small so your professor will have the opportunity to get to know you and you will have the chance to get to know your classmates as well. The professors are flexible depending on what’s impeding you to succeed.
