    Excellent value for students who are looking to prepare for transfer to a larger college or university. Talented and dedicated instructors in a very small setting with great access to instruction and mentorship. Great resources, very low tuition provides a great opportunity for students on a budget.

    overall, i think oakton is a very lame college and the building is very outdated. i never liked the lighting of the school and it feels depressing. i sometime had to be on campus for more the 10 hours. my eyes hurt do to the lack of light and it made me very tire causing me to slow down when i tried to get my work done.

    Overall, a community college that's acceptable. Some of the teachers here are absolute gems and people that will truly influence the direction of your career and life, should you choose to truly learn from them. Advising and counseling is disorganized and often times problematic for planning on what to do in terms of transferring and academic coursework.

    Oakton Community College is a junior college that's good for what it says it does. It guarantees a successful transfer to a 4 year college in Illinois. Perfect for new college students and those who are hesitant about higher education!

    No, it is not like high school again. Going to Oakton was one of the best decisions I made for myself and I wish I had made that decision sooner. You won't regret it.

    Oakton gets you prepared for the real world. There is a lot of leniency within the school. Better than I expected

    Oakton is a college that is great for someone who is both undecided and looking to explore their options or just get their general education classes out of the way. You'll always be welcomed inside to a nice, quiet atmosphere but that doesn't mean it's hard to make friends at all. The best thing though is how so many professors are always willing to help you when you need it and show how they really enjoy working at Oakton.
