Orange County Community College is a great stepping stone in finding out what you want to pursue in life. Not only is the college affordable the professors are available and very friendly. A lot of my friends from high school attend SUNY Orange and there are so many clubs to interact with so I don't feel isolated. The overal war,th of the college is a plus.

The college is located between five and ten minutes away from two major highways so it is easily accessible to students from many areas. A new building was added to the campus about two years ago that offers new equipment and a new food service area as well. What I value the most about SUNY Orange is the communication. Students are updated on a regular basis about upcoming events and any schedule changes or closings. We also get alerted immediately via text message and/or email if there is an emergency which is very important to me. Being a commuter school, finding a parking space in the morning can be a bit of a hassle. Luckily, a new parking garage was added about two years ago. It is located directly across the street from one of the main buildings so students don't have to walk far in the cold. The professors at the school are very knowledgeable and helpful. I have been attending the school for about four years now and out of every professor that I have had there was only one that I was not too fond of. Overall, I am very impressed with SUNY Orange and would encourage other students to come for a visit to see if it is a fit for them.

SUNY Orange is a great 2 year school. Many people like to put you down for going to a two year school. What I have to say is that there is nothing wrong with a 2 year school. Education is education everywhere. I chose SUNY Orange and I am living at home which is also normal! Not only do I live at home but SUNY Orange is only 10 minutes away from my job which is great! I chose SUNY Orange and I don't regret it.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior there are a few things I would tell myself about the transition of going to college. One of the first things I would tell myself is to be prepared to read. In high school I didn't do a lot of the assigned readings and upon entering college I was ill prepared for the amount of reading I had to do for nearly every subject. The second thing I would tell myself is to break my procrastination habbits now. I have always been a procratinator when it came to school work and I have always tried to stop. It's a hard thing for me to break and I'm still paying for it now. As for everything else, I feel I prepared myself accodingly.

  5. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    Offhand, the worst thing about my school is inadequate parking for students and faculty. During the beginning of the semester if someone gets to school after 9:30, parking will be hard to find. That's when people are stalking students walking to their cars from classes in hopes that they'll be leaving and a spot will then be open.

    The cost to academic value ratio is throug the roof. I paid a small fraction for the education I received and took the same if not better classes than others in my same major at more expenisve schools. OCCC is a "great buy" when talking about money. It is your best bet if you have financial difficulties but still want to attend a college.

  12. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating this about the school I attened is that our school has branches in other cities about 30-45 minutes away. Most of the professors not only work at the main campus but the other extensions as well. So if you are trying to meet with them it can be very hard scheduling an appointment because of your schedule or your professors. It would be nice if students could make an appointment with their professors without having to go through the hassel of professors rushing out of class or if they had more office hours.
