My overall experience was a positive one. I made some life long friends and had some great professors. I know of at least three my professors that are no longer at College of the Ozarks. The on campus work experience was an interesting one, Everyone has to work 15 hours a week and 2 forty hours work weeks per year. These work hours help pay for your tuition so, the good thing is that I left school owing $2700. I know completely unheard of! I have been able to follow my dreams without hesitation. Once a person has a degree its up to them what they do with it. I am really tired of people blaming outside influences on their success or failure.
“While I do not feel four years couldBrightEducation
While I do not feel four years could adequately prepare anyone to go into a high poverty school and reach success immediately, College of the Ozarks paved the way for me. Not only did an administrator personally call to give me a job recommendation, but multiple members of the faculty and administration have continued to stay connected with me and have become a valuable resource. I would not be where I am today without College of the Ozarks. I am 28 years old, own my own home and have 0 debt. Not many people who go into education can say that.
