    Campus Safety

    I've never had to use campus security, but from people I know that have, they're alive and well today!

    Greek Life

    Phi Theta Kappa is about as Greek as it gets when it comes to Odessa College. It's the official honor society that Odessa College uses.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are organizations such as acapella choir, band, cheerleading, and theater. There's something to suit most interests.

    Great for these types of students

    Recent high-school graduates looking to transfer to a larger, four-year university.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Even if the semester hasn't started, make sure you get your schedule right the first time. You will be charged an outrageous amount just to change your schedule for any reason at any time.

    Bang for the buck

    Great education for what little money that you do pay. I'm excelling in all subjects because of the great teachers I've had.

    What to do for fun

    Join an organization that interests you. Choir or Basketball might be interesting and provide you with a hobby so that you have something to do.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria on campus has adequate food at an acceptable level. But it's just that: a cafeteria, not a dining hall. Coffee shop is great too!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life seems sufficient for this campus. The dorms are apartment-esque.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic basics are a little bit of a challenge, but it is VERY possible to get As in your basics courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Odessa College has greatly helped me understand what it means to be a college student. Despite it being a community college, it helps introduce a new learning system and style into your life. Don't be afraid to go for it!

    In three sentences

    Odessa College, despite being a community college, provides a warm, welcoming environment. The instructors are very understanding towards your learning needs and provide appropriate accommodations as needed. Overall, I would say that Odessa College is a fine choice for those who want to take the first step in their college education!
