    I love attending OTC because the classes are small and the teachers are wonderful. I work 6 days a week and go to school full-time. If I can do it, then anyone can.

    The staff at COTO go above and beyond to help students understand the material being taught. The atmosphere at the school is very laid back and conducive to learning. I always feel right at home there and want to continue my education with them.

    All students!

    Bang for the buck

    You spend a third of the amount of money you would spend going to a big university, for the same education.

    What to do for fun

    Even though we don't have dorms and a cafeteria, there are still plenty of things you can do for fun. Guys play football outside of the building, and girls can enjoy our cosmetology part of the school. The school hold a lot of educational fares and keep the students involved.

    Food and Dining

    We don't have a cafeteria here. But there are different clubs and groups that give out free food sometimes. We also have a few trailers at our campus basketball courts that serve food, not free though.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're thinking about attend this college, you making a great choice. Everyone is friendly including the instructors. And if you feel nervous at first, there are plenty of meet and greet activities that are done throughout the semesters.

    In three sentences

    Commuters and nontraditional students. You don't really get the typical college experience here, but for those single parents and full-time workers, this is a great school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One of my favorite hangout spots is the gazebo in the courtyard. There are also picnic tables under the pine trees by the Arts and Sciences building.

    Bang for the buck

    There's a basketball court and the cosmetology department takes appointments for hair and nails.
