    First term, not too impressed with the expense of the tuition at $99. a credit! Wow, that on top of books has me thinking I should move to a cheaper school or get lots of scholarships.

    What to do for fun

    Go to the dog park with a few friends on a sunny day is quite enjoyable. You can also drive a few minutes to hit the beach or the bay front.

    Food and Dining

    No cafeteria, but there is an on campus mini-store that sells a small variety of food and drinks. Price is a little high, though.

    Dorm Life

    There really isn't an on-campus dorm, but there is a housing section near the college. I do not know how much they cost, but they are cute! There is a dog park right in front of the college, too.

    Academic Rigor

    The writing classes I have been in recognize that college students should be able to pump out papers every week. Some papers are harder to write than others, but some are very difficult! Make sure to study for exams ahead of time to get the knowledge engraved into your brain!

    Tips for prospective students

    Meet with the guidance counselor early and sign up for classes when you can. Classes are on a first come, first serve basis. Make sure to do your homework on time! Try to be early for class, as the professors start lecturing right when class begins. OCCC is very close to the beach and the bay front, which are both very beautiful places!

    Oregon Coast Community College is a nice, fun place near the coast. The staff there are all very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are having a good education. OCCC has several clubs and very good nursing as well as aquarium science programs!

    Clubs and Activities

    Psychology club, surf club, and more I'm sure but I don't participate.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who like small classes, the wilderness, the ocean and the beach would like this school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Campus has a Frisbee golf course and a hiking trail

    Bang for the buck

    My high school has paid for all of my supplies so far.

    What to do for fun

    Clubs, Frisbee golf, surf club

    Food and Dining

    No dining necessarily. There is a small store on campus with healthy things to choose from.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms on campus

    Academic Rigor

    I progress in the areas I'm taught in.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Work on your essay writing skills 2. Pay attention to your calender for class 3. Don't be afraid to ask questions 4. Keep track of your stuff 5. Prioritize, don't procrastinate

    In three sentences

    I'm able to use the resources easily and everyone is very helpful which I appreciate. It's a small school but I like the idea of having small classes because you can get more one- on- one time with your professor. The campus is close to home and my job so attending would be very convenient for me.

    Bang for the buck

    This is a great school to get the classes done that you have to do anyways, the classes are smaller and way cheaper than a standard four year institute.

    What to do for fun

    Honestly, it's a community college, there really isn't anything besides school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't procrastinate on your homework.

    In three sentences

    The Oregon Coast Community College is a great school. I really like how small the classes are which makes them more one on one with the teacher student relationship.

    Great for these types of students

    Working full-time (online classes); high school students (dual enrollment with the cost of community college paid for by the school district).

    Bang for the buck

    Great way to get two years of college out of the way while working or attending high school at a much lower cost than university. That means that it will be a lot easier to afford my bachelor's degree.

    Food and Dining

    No opinion--I think there is a snack bar of some sorts.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the teachers/professors have really high standards. You will not feel like you can just skate by!

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you talk to staff, advisors, etc. instead of just thinking you can do it on your own. They will help! Whether is it information about financial aid, tutoring, no matter what--ask.

    In three sentences

    Great little local school in an area with limited resources. Staff is committed and professional. Everyone is very supportive of the students so they can succeed.
