Central Oregon Community College was a great college to start at. The faculty members were all very helpful with whatever needs or accommodations my schedule needed. The teachers were willing to work one on one with the students and that was a huge help in being able to understand the material. Before I started at Central Oregon Community College I would have like to know that it is much easier and less stressful to get around at the Redmond campus than the Bend campus. I also would have liked to know that the class sizes are much smaller in Redmond than Bend.

I love all the professors here at the college; they are professional and enthusiastic at what they teach. I love listening to professors lecture. This is an excellent community college campus. If you have trouble walking up stairs (COCC contains a lot of stairs), the campus contains buses that run through the college campus.
