Marissa - 07/10/2018

OCAC is a unique place because of the small student body, which makes for a tight-knit community. The facilities are highly specialized and well-cared for by a studio manager in each department. In addition to individualized mentorship from faculty, students can expect support from staff members and visiting artists. The school acts as an incubator for creatives, encouraging experimentation, risk-taking, and collaboration.

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

    As a high school senior, I already had more responsibility than most people my age. I worked a part time job, and lived on a ranch with my mom and stepdad, who regularly employed me to take care of things while they were gone. This gave me the knowledge and wit to embark on my own journey when I went to college. However, one of the biggest pieces of advice I would have given myself would be to make friends. I had the most difficult time making friends and branching out when I first attended college. The other piece of advice would be to explore the city. I travelled the same routes, and avoided new areas out of fear. I got better at it after a little bit, but I would definitely encourage the younger me to explore the city and make friends. Those two things can strongly enrich a students experience of college life, bringing happiness, and helping boost self esteem and confidence.
