    Campus Safety

    Campus Safety is very important. The parking lot is fully lit for night classes. Students often stay after class to work on their subject material. These students feel safe, because outside doors close at 8pm. Ottawa University has taken all the right steps in making their campus safe and secure.

    Greek Life

    There is no Greek Life at Ottawa University-Brookfield.

    Clubs and Activities

    Ottawa University does not offer much when it comes to clubs and activities. They do however, offer writing and math labs, which gives students an opportunity or ask question in writing and math subjects. It allows the students to ask for a second opinion or to ask for help in classes pertaining to writing and math.

    Great for these types of students

    Ottawa University is great for students who are considering going back to school and continuing their education. It is also great for students like myself. After high school I attended a technical college, graduated and then proceeded to Ottawa University.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The campus is located in a secluded business court. It shares a building with two other business as well. Also if a student wanted to take a walk or take a study break, they could walk over to the mall which is right down the street from Ottawa University-Brookfield.

    Bang for the buck

    I believe Ottawa University is priced fairly. Classes are worth the time and expense. Thus far, my teachers have been very dedicated to their classes, making it their goal for all of us to succeed.

    What to do for fun

    I have only been a student at Ottawa University for 3 months. Therefore, I am still discovering what Ottawa has to offer. However, during homecoming week, we were greeted by various teachers when we walked to class and offered free soda and cider to celebrate.

    Food and Dining

    Ottawa University has a nice break room for its students. They offer free coffee after 6pm and within the break room is a drink vending machine, a snack vending machine, and the equipment to warm various foods within the snack vending machine.

    Dorm Life

    Since Ottawa University-Brookfield, Wisconsin is an off-site campus, no dorm rooms are available. However, the building itself is located in a nice and accessible area.

    Academic Rigor

    Ottawa University only recommends taking two classes at a time, because the academic rigor can be challenging. As stated above classes are only 8 weeks and meet one day a week for three hours. A student must be disciplined enough to study at home and ask questions when needed.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to attend Ottawa University, my advice would be to keep your head down and work extremely hard. If possible try to work ahead on assignments and reading. This will not only put you ahead in your class, but it will allow you time to go back and reread anything you did not understand. It will also give you the opportunity to ask your professor questions about the subject matter.

    In three sentences

    Ottawa University offers 8 week classes which are fast paced and challenging. Even though classes are short teachers are very dedicated to your success. Overall Ottawa University is a place for mature adults who want to learn and earn a degree in a favorable amount to time.

    Tour the campus and talk to current students. Once you have spent time at Ottawa, you will see why we love it so much.
