What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that’s a great place to start off your college career, whether if you are a freshman or a returning student, it’s a place of many opportunities and accessibility. It’s a relatively safe and inviting community, I like going here because it is not that intimidating and I feel comfortable on campus.

I love this school the campus is really big for a community college and the people are really nice and the staff is super helpful. I like this school so much that I even commuted an hour twice a day two days out of the week because i didn't want to transfer to another community college. It's a great school!'

The campus is absolutely beautiful and filled with widespread chances of opportunities. They are currently under the construction for housing for students and the professors are all extremely helpful. The school offers tutoring and many classes fitting our choice of study.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy the environment and all of the resources that the school has to offer. All of the teachers that I have had are very qualified and all know what they are talking about. if I ever need help or have a question they are more than willing to go out of their way. There is also a computer lab that is available for students to use and print out or just use computers. Also, my favorite part is that there is a Starbucks on campus so if you ever need a coffee break of a snack there is a Starbucks on campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Orange Coast College is an amazing place to go. Although it may not give you the full "college experience", it is still a great place to be. The campus is nice and really easy to navigate. Everyone is nice and accommodating. The professors are great and are available to help you with almost anything. There is plenty of things to do, whether it is participating in sports or joining one of the unique clubs on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a large campus with many opportunities to find what a student wants to do in life. The classes are affordable, but financial aid is also offered. The professors really care about the students and really want them to succeed. Some of the classes are meant to prepare students for transfer and are really hard, but there are many tutoring services available on and off campus by fellow students and professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

OCC is like a dream to me. The first thing I tend to mention when I'm asked about my school are the trees. Anywhere you go on campus you are guaranteed to see green, a colour of renewal and growth (which I think is a lovely, calming, and positive setting for a college campus and learning students). The plant culture is amazing and all the different types of flora help to create a very freeing and encouraging atmosphere; the campus is already quite large on its own, so the towering trees seem to make the campus reach the skies. There's something about the air here, (being only a few miles from the beach) that makes one feel they can breathe easier. We also get beach sunsets so come evening, the sky turns into a painter's palette. The only thing better than the campus are the people. Everyone seems to have such ambition, and character, and an extreme amount of friendliness. I love getting to know all the different histories and backgrounds of the individuals on campus. There are so many places to gather; one of my favourites being the cafeteria (where they offer an impressive vegan menu option), or the many fields of grass, or the Starbucks next to an Art building that I could write an entire review on itself. The professors somehow seem to oddly reflect the students. Once in a while you'll see a professor with a crazy hat and bodacious suit, or one dressed up as a persona in history. Its refreshing to see expression like that--inspiring as well. Orange Coast College has really become a second home to me. I'm not sure if it's the people, or the food, or the many flowers that allow students to feel so comfortable--perhaps its an amalgamation of everything-- but it sure does feel like a part of me, and from the peaceful encounters I experience, I believe most of my fellow students would agree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Orange Coast college is the perfect community college to go to for figuring out what you really want to do beyond the school. The administration is great in helping students find their way across campus as well as good counselors to guide students into the career path they wish to pursue. For a junior college, there are a lot of students from all over the world that come to Orange Coast not only for the education, but to experience California since it is a beautiful state. There is a chance Orange Coast is adding their own dorms since it is such a popular school, but in the meantime, students live close by in houses, apartments, or with their parents. There are different places to eat on campus , but there are also plenty of food places outside of the campus that are affordable and convenient. For ways to stay involved in the school, Orange Coast offers a wide variety of clubs to join to open you up to different scholarship opportunities and meet new people. The professors here are very intuitive into their subjects and are great in helping explain topics further to help students understand the concepts better. The athletic teams here are very competitive with many having conference titles and making many state appearances. If you are a student who lives close to this campus and wants to go to school close to home, I would definitely recommend this place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

orange coast college is a great school you can go to for anything and everything. our school is open and welcome to everyone, we love our sports teams just as much as we love our art programs, and we are always open to new challenges. you saves much money since it is a community college but you still get the amazing college experience. the more involved you are, the better! I just started this year at orange coast college and I couldn't be happier with my decision to go to this school.
