WHAT I LIKED

It's a great school to attend for whatever your career goals may be. There is substantial school aid and the staff is very friendly.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you're thinking about transferring make sure you talk to multiple counselors to figure out your academic plan because just one counselor may accidentally lead you in the wrong direction.

WHAT I LIKED

It was an excellent experience at COD. I got help from counselors when I didn’t have a single clue on how to choose or pick my classes.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn’t like that there availability on calling is poor. Sometimes they’re rude, sound like we ask too many questions, or that they don’t know what we mean.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

The staff wants you to succeed & take your input about interest in certain classes, schedules, or teaching platforms at heart. They offer many resources that are vital to struggling college students including snack pantries, free books, and even child care.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is a very limited amount of classes available and they fill up quickly. You may need to take a class in a format you're not entirely comfortable in such as asynchronous courses where you are left to your own devices with just video lectures and online tests.
