| While community college is a great way to save money while earning a degree, this college is just not worth it. I was switched around to three different Academic Advisers within the two years that I attended, and each one of them told me something completely different about which courses I needed to take to get my degree. I have all of the credits I need for the most general degree Owens offers - Associate of Arts - but the administration is telling me that I don't. Owens promises that they accept credits from almost every other college, but this is not true. I have nine credit hours from Tiffin University, which initially my advisers promised would transfer seamlessly, but now the college refuses to accept any of these credits. It's nearly impossible to talk to anyone that can help you. No one in the administration knows what they're doing. I have had problems with their administration from day one because they do not communicate with each other. Owens claims that really work with their students, but this is not true at all. I would not recommend this college to anyone. They're just out to make money. |

| Going to Owens great way to save money, but some of the teacher just too pushes blaming it on the school system. The school are mostly worrying about the stardard rather than student education the dropout rate is really high. The tutor center suck there not allow to help student much anymore really use less. Waste of Tax dollars Owens is a free ticket for Financial Aid for rent or a new car. The education is a joke. Alot of there policies do not much anysense as long they get money it fine. Same as the housing bubble. |

| I didn't know what exactly what I wanted to do when I graduated from high school in 2005. I went to Owens and got some classes done but did not take it as seriously as I should, don't get me wrong I went to class everyday but that's honestly about all. I worked a full time job for three years then went back to get my degree in Nursing. In my first semester it came out that the program lost one accredidation of many it had. The news medias blew it out of proportion and every single day for the two years I was in the nursing program asking me if the school was still accredited and if I would be able to get a job once I graduated. I have thick skin but it gets to you. |
Aside from that the faculty was about 50% good, 50% bad. You had your share of lazy teachers who clearly didn't want to be there, clinical instructors who cause you to loose opportunities because they wanted to take an extra long lunch or leave early, those who couldn't answer the questions that were on the tests THEY made, the ones who flip out on you at clinicals because they are fighting with their husband, the sexest one, and ones that were just plain rude ("don't call my personal cell phone for emergencies that happen on the weekend while your precepting, I have a life outside of Owens").
The clinical experiences were seriously lacking, it seemed like every week I got a patient with a hip replacement or we didn't have enough patients for everyone. I was once chewed out by a clinical instructor who told me my patient was looking for me while I was on another floor she assigned me to. Now after I have passed every class they will not allow me to graduate until the end of summer because they changed this end of program exam so you have to get a 97% on it to pass. If you don't pass you have to go through this online program called VATI and at the end of VATI you take an exam just like the first one...but you only have to get a 90% on it to pass. What sense does that make?Community colleges have there place (take some classes, save some money) but if you are young, looking at the nursing department and have the opportunity go somewhere else...I would! Take some gen ed classes there, save money, move on! I truly truly regret entering this program, if I could do it over again I would go to a real college!
