This school is amazing. The professors are personally invested in your achievement and success and are always there to help. Classes are small allowing for one on one time with the professor and the learning community is supportive and caring.
Obtaining a degree from OCU was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done but something I value and will cherish for the rest of my life. There’s nothing like it.
My best experience was with the university's staff; very supportive and helpful.
