    two separate cafeterias, and delicious meals. coffee shop as well.

    Dorm Life

    the dorms are all super friendly, and everyone is friends with everyone else.

    Academic Rigor

    lots of papers that you'll have to write, but there is a lot of good that comes from it.

    Tips for prospective students

    talk to people about this place. if it isn't your perfect fit, they won't be offended. just tell your admissions counselor how you feel about everything, and speak with other students/professors.

    Campus Safety

    There is one person on duty all the time, but frankly I don't think he is much of protection. There's never been a threat the campus as far as I'm aware though.

    Greek Life

    None.

    Clubs and Activities

    No clubs really, just sports.

    Great for these types of students

    Students in the Christian Church who are looking to be in ministry.

    Bang for the buck

    It's not bad price wise. You get what you pay for.

    What to do for fun

    There are several activities(mostly athletics such as Ultimate Frisbee or basketball) around campus to keep you busy. There is also a mall and movie theatre in Joplin. You're only bored if you choose to be.

    Food and Dining

    There is one main meal downstairs and hamburgers, pizza and subs upstairs. Sometimes the food is quite tasteless, but overall it's pretty good.

    Dorm Life

    You will not be involved if you don't put yourself out there. There are plenty of opportunities to be involved at whatever level you would like to be.

    Academic Rigor

    The grading scale at Ozark is much higher than most colleges. So don't be so disappointed if your 93% is a B+. You will learn a lot about the bible and have a TON of memory work.

    Tips for prospective students

    This is a small school so if you are wanting a university feel this is not the place for you. Get involved early if you are thinking of being a part of something. You can't always have the classes you want so make sure you have a back-up plan on registration day.

    In three sentences

    I would rate Ozark as a 6 out of 10. It is a small school and there only a ministry school. This is not the school for you if you are looking to do something other than working in the church or on the mission field.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Ozark is much higher quality than some cafeteria food. They provide a variety of healthy options.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is incredible! We have become a family, a sisterhood. We hold each other accountable. We carry each other's burdens. We pray together, laugh together. We share life together.

    Academic Rigor

    Ozark is very challenging academically. Throughout the semester, there are many projects and reading assignments that take a considerable amount of time. You must do your homework! You will not stay at OCC if you do not try to earn your grades.

    In three sentences

    Ozark Christian College is a wonderful place, full of opportunity. The professors care deeply about the students and the student body is a tight community. Ozark offers an incredible education for future world changers.

    What to do for fun

    Ozark presents many opportunities for entertainment, mainly its the dorm life, school events, and missional opportunities that can be life changing and exciting.

    Food and Dining

    the food is not too shabby, but it's not five star.. i mean, come on.. its a cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life at OCC is something that you can't find anywhere else. the community that thrives within each dorm is amazing.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics at Ozark are challenging, and keep you on your toes. being organized is a necessity here because you are taking on so many responsibilities, which can be life changing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your best to take advantage of the opportunity for community. through the community of leaders in your peers and professors you will learn so much more than you could ever learn from books.

    In three sentences

    Campus Safety

    We have a top notch security guard whose heart is for the safety of the students and their professors.

    Clubs and Activities

    Intramural sports are always a fun time around here. Volleyball, soccer, Ultimate, and basketball are some of the sports we offer to play and are free for everyone to join.

    Great for these types of students

    Active students. Students who enjoy community. Students who love God, and want to live in an atmosphere that is focused on bringing His name glory

    Bang for the buck

    This is a really good price for a private institution. You get so much biblical knowledge and just life knowledge while here at Ozark that I would recommened it to anyone looking to going into ministry.

    What to do for fun

    Go play Ultimate with us on Wednesdays and Sundays. Go hammocking in the woods, or at the falls, or go play pool in the stuu.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty good for college. There are some repetitive meals, but some of them are worth the reptition.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life here is fantastic. I live on Boatman 3rd and enjoy one of the beset communities in the world. We have dorm devos every Thursday allowing us to grow closer to each other through small worship.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging, but you learn so much in class and out of class from the professors..

    Tips for prospective students

    Working ahead here is such a good idea. If you can work ahead your class load will be simple only having tests that get bunched up instead of papers, tests, memory works, and job all in the middle of the semester.

    In three sentences

    This college is a great college for students who like small campuses, tight community, and love God. The professors here are phenonemal and the student body is very friendly in nature. One of the best parts is the Ultimate Frisbee we play as a group of people every Wednesday and Sunday night.

    Some might say that it is not worth it, but the amount of shear knowledge you get here is incredible.

    Serve at churches in the area, and develop relationships with the people in those churches.

    Food and Dining

    It is pretty decent.

    Dorm Life

    Great community with all the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    It is an extremely rewarding school, but it is very writing intensive.

    Be ready for early classes!

    In three sentences

    Ozark is a terrific college for anyone going into the ministry. The teachers are personal, and attentive. This is just a great place for community.
