What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakton Community College has two campuses: the one in Des Plaines and the one in Skokie. I attended the one in Skokie for two and a half years and while the classes were great and I enjoyed my time, there is a clear favorite campus by the faculty and that is not the Skokie campus. We had resources but not nearly as much as the Des Plaines campus, which really hindered my on campus experience and my willingness to attend events at as they were mostly at the other campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oakton Community College is affordable and offers students a variety of opportunities to be successful academically and has small class sizes. There are also job, college, and extracurricular fairs that give students the opportunity to be involved in the school. Academic Advisers help students stay on track to reach their goals of earning a certificate or degree. It's an easy and simple process to meet with an adviser and make a academic plan to see what classes students need or how many credits they will need to graduate. Students can go into the enrollment center where they can set up an appointment and meet with their adviser in the same place. Professors offer students office hours and can meet with students after class or over email if they need additional help. The college uses a service called "D2L" which allows students to access their class information, assignments, and the grade book all online. In my experience, d2L has made it easier for me to communicate with my classmates and professor through online discussions and I can easily submit my work online.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first started at Oakton, I had no idea what to expect. I thought that when you attend a community college, you get what you pay for - that couldn’t have been further from the truth. The honors seminars, volunteer opportunities and amazing mentors that I gained throughout my attendance at Oakton were enriching beyond belief. My concentration at Oakton was Peace and Social Justice, and they provided innumerable opportunities to enhance my concentration both academically and experientially.

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.
