"OCC is beautiful!! Professors at OCC are very knowledgeable and kind.  I major in Accounting and plan to transfer to a 4-year university when I complete my program.  As an international student coming to America, OCC has taught me a lot about being a good student and learning the educational system.  I am a member of Chinese Student Association and have found many new friends."

"I decided to come to the U.S. to see the rest of the world and study communications at OCC because of the support system, location, and its transfer rate.  OCC is known for great athletic programs and reputable coaches.  I am sure OCC will equip me with the athletic and academic skills necessary to enter and excel at a University of California (UC) school. If you are thinking of studying abroad, go for it!"

"Studying outside Vietnam is a great opportunity for me to experience new things and the United States was my number once choice when I decided to study abroad.  The OCC campus is enormously beautiful; it gives you a comfortable environment when you are far away from your home and I love the staff.  they are always willing to help, always happy to answer questions and assist me.  The best thing is that they are nice and make you feel like they are your second family."
