OTC is a fantastic community college. Student services staff is very knowledgeable. Instructors in a very large majority care and want you to succeed. Most are even willing to give you one on one help after hours if needed. To reply to "complaints" from other users, the "unseen" daycare is at the opposite side of the parking lot, financial aid problems are Higher One related, not OTC. Tutoring gets constant praises, especially for something no one can find. There is also a great student for disabilities staff as well as a veteran branch to help those who served for our freedom. Every vet at OTC will guarantee you that they get the respect they deserve. Phi Theta Kappa and the honors program do a lot of volunteering all year long and those money grabbing staff helped me when I was sleeping in my car when I first started class 3 years ago. I am graduating from this great school in less than two weeks and I am proud to be an Eagle.

I am a Student Ambassador here at OTC and I absolutely love working at this school! It has given me so many opportunities to help my future. When I first started attending OTC, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Though I am still trying to figure things out, I now have a good direction of where I want to go and what I want to do in life. This is definitely a great place to get started on your college career and it certainly doesn't hurt that it is for a fraction of the cost!

Every staff member, teacher, and student worker will go above and beyond to make sure you get to where you want to be. I started out in the after-hours GED program at OTC, took advantage of their AA transfer degree (and AS in Chemistry). The tutoring center helped me get through all my math and science classes, and the writing center assisted me in honing my writing abilities.Compared to my four-year college down the road. Pro: Small class sizes!!!, online tutoring, last night tutoring, easier access to student services such as financing, scholarship applications, superb (newer, in better shape) classroom & lab resources. Teachers are often are more accessible. Security has helped jump-start my car several times-very friendly and helpful! Diversity of class times: hybrid classes and late night classes. Often homework is online, with staggered due dates (great for someone working several jobs plus being a student). Cost $$$ was a third of another college and credits transfer anywhere!, Adviser took the time to tell me which classes transferred which way even went as far as introducing me to others for networking. Job/Resume career center was awesome. Cons: Campus/library/resources are closed over on Sunday, and overnight. weekend, all the lights off in the builds despite being open-feels creepy. Shared Cons from OTC & MSU: Teacher do not handout items to saves paper, blackboard has bogged down times/days, parking in the beginning of the semester is rough, food/drink prices on campus, government funding/waiting issues for paperwork.
