a great environment to be in and around. very easy to access all of campus and classes. offers way more programs than i would have guessed, a lot of programs.
Tips for prospective students
they have all the help anybody would need including a eops center with counselors, fully staffed and are always happy to meet new students.
Academic Rigor
they just recently had to cut a few classes, but they broke it down mostly to where all classes would still be available.
Dorm Life
i live away from campus.
Food and Dining
they have a cafeteria, it reminds me of high school, the cooking they do. they offer a variety of foods; cold sandwiches, hot pasta, oriental rices, snacks, shakes, vendors and all. they make sure everyone get served as well, great service unless in the middle of day.
What to do for fun
the campus has its own park, tennis courts, football (soccer), baseball, and even a built skate park. unlimited access to computers also in library.
Bang for the buck
the rate is fair, they just raised it though. i get a waiver for most of my tuition but what they are charging me is for a solid career one day.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
nothing unusual, its a great normal, local, and friendly campus..
Great for these types of students
general education, automotive body and automotive technology, they have great classes to learn extra hobbies, like music and pottery or masonry. and they just built a whole new theater building for a lot more new classes and better materials to teach it with.
Clubs and Activities
auto club, i love to go and work on the classics that everyone drives to meetings. they also have a vast variety of others for more education.
Campus Safety
safety is top notch at this campus. there are always police on patrol and the station is right in the middle of all the facilities.

Oxnard college is a very convient school in the area, and is considered very affordable. The environment is well up kept, and easy to get around. Lastly, the peers and professors are easy going, few may be stern, but that there job and they are good at what they do.
Tips for prospective students
One of the best tips is know what you are doing before taking classes. There are many cases of students taking classes they don't need and cant graduate.

Although Oxnard may not be an University, it still has the many education resources as one.
Dorm Life
I do not live on campus so I can not comment on the following.
Food and Dining
The food and cafeteria area is very convenient, the prices are fair and the chooses are healthy.
What to do for fun
As a student I don't have much time for fun but there are many clubs and classes that are considered as fun, from dance, performing arts, or even a sport.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
We have a new library on campus, but for some reason I still favor the other one, maybe its where its located or it may be the essence of it being new.
Campus Safety
Of course if your a student you may want to cruise around campus on bike or longboard, these are fine as long as you wear your general helmet.

Did learn a lot
I originally had planned on transferring straight in to a 4 year University, glad I came here first. I learned some much here and feel more assured of my choice of major.
Did enjoy being here
Small and fun classes, was able to get to know my instructors one on one!
Bang for the buck
Saved me anywhere from $50,000-70,000, of what I would have spent at UC or Cal State if I had transferred straight out of high school and was able to explore many academic departments without wasting money.
Tips for prospective students
Treat the classes as if you did spend a lot of money on them, so that you have a better appreciation and work harder at getting good grades.
Great for these types of students
Students who are on a budget or unsure of what to study.
