occ looks like a fantastic place to continue a person's studies. the spiritual side of things is also great, with chapel etc. the staff, students, and professors are all very kind and friendly.
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.
Academic Rigor
lots of papers that you'll have to write, but there is a lot of good that comes from it.
Dorm Life
the dorms are all super friendly, and everyone is friends with everyone else.

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.
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.
Academic Rigor
The classes are challenging, but you learn so much in class and out of class from the professors..
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.
Food and Dining
The food is pretty good for college. There are some repetitive meals, but some of them are worth the reptition.
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.
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.
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
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.
Campus Safety
We have a top notch security guard whose heart is for the safety of the students and their professors.

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