    I know that I will enjoy myself here at COS! Not only do I have a lot of friends that attend the college. But I hear that the theatre and vocal teachers are phenomenal! I cannot wait to start!

    The college is relaxing and the atmosphere of the college is very easy going. People are friendly and the faculty and resources amongst the school are very helpful as long as you aren't afraid to ask questions. Scheduling an appointment with the counselors gets a little frustrating but they do the best they can and just ask for your patience in the mean time. They get to you as soon as possible, you just might have to wait a few days.

    Despite the good classes, theres really not too much to do here at COS. The library is excellent resource here, but aside from the occasional food fair and the mediocre sports venues, theres really not too much to do at COS. It is a Community college though, so it's not like you can expect a 5-star Recreation center. The center of COs is a great place to hang out with friends while waiting for class, there is plenty of green grass and oak trees that provide plenty of shade during the hot days.
