Why did you choose to study at OCCC?

Getting an education at OCCC is an economic-friendly way to attend college. It makes sense to come here for half the price, and then finish at a university like OU, OSU or UCO.

What do you like best about your classes?

I really like the smaller class sizes – bigger is not always better.

If you have declared a major and are in a program – what do you like best about the program?

I’m a Business Accounting major. I’m really enjoying all my classes within the program at OCCC.

What are your plans following graduation?

I plan to get my bachelor’s degree at the University of Oklahoma after I graduate from OCCC.

Would you recommend OCCC to friends and if so, why?

Yes. For me and for many, I’m sure, it boiled down to economics. Students can come here for a great, affordable education.

What advice would you offer to friends who are planning to enroll at OCCC?

Ask questions if you don’t know the answer; seek support if you need it – through your instructor, tutors and labs; and take advantage of the resources available.
