Alumnus - Grad Year 2012

Overall Rating

I could not have done as well as I had (graduating Summa Cum Laude) without the faculty and staff of OTC. An institution that honestly has it's student's best interest in mind and they certainly have their work cut out for them. Each semester that I attended OTC, the student attendance increased by quite a bit causing OTC to scramble to meet the demands of parking, classrooms, and class availability. Overall, I highly recommend OTC and strongly suggest accepting an invitation into Phi Theta Kappa. (By the way, OTC's chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, Alpha Psi Tau, has been number one in the region two years running and in the top ten and twenty out of over 1200 chapters the last two years).
