Great college, it has all the amenities needed for a community college in this town. All professors and staff are very helpful with students. All online material is great and easy to access. Facility is great and has been newly and continually updated.

Katie

It is a very well balanced school. it has a variety of people and class options which is good. The professors care about how much their students learn. They take pride in their school and their students. They have many helpful places to go if you are looking for help and they also provide joint classes with Western Kentucky University if you want to further your education there.

Karris

It's a good start to get extra credit before entering a 4-year school (I'm an early college student) or to pursue a basic career that only requires an associates degree.If you want to get out of Owensboro, however, this isn't the school for a high school graduate to attend unless they need the credit to move out.

Hannah

It’s a nice affordable school that has helped me get the education i need to transfer

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

    Just because you're a senior doesn't mean that you should give up. Every grade, every test, every deadline should be treated like it can effect your whole gpa, because it can. Being cool and popular and the "hot chick" isn't everything. I would have told myself to be more balanced and not have been a slacker or a procrastinator because that is hard to grow out of. Develop good study habits do you don't strain every brain particle you have the week before and of finals because it will catch up with you if you slack off all semester and try to cram everything into one week. And finally, don't follow the crowd-follow your heart, its your education, not your friends.
