Renitta Server, a nursing major from Oklahoma City has been pleased with how OCCC has worked to fit classes into her “life schedule.”

I appreciate being able to fit my classes into my life schedule and meeting new students going through the same experiences.
What’s your favorite class?
My favorite class over all so far was my President’s Leadership Class that I was accepted into during the fall of 2011.
If you have declared a major and are in program – what do you like best about the program?
My major is nursing and I will be applying to the OCCC nursing program next fall. I have heard from other nursing students that the program is great. I’m up for the challenge.

I am currently the president of the Black Student Association. I also participate in many community service activities, and have participated in activities through Student Life on campus.

What are your plans following graduation?
After getting my associate degree in nursing from OCCC, I plan to enroll at a four year university and continue my education.

Yes, I would recommend OCCC to friends or anyone who wants to go back to school because it’s flexible, affordable, and it’s a good way to meet new friends.
What advice would you offer to friends who are planning to enroll at OCCC?
Enroll, because it’s worth every penny and you can get all the education you need there in no time.
What else can you share about your academic experience?
The Trio Program helped me be very successful. They tutored me in courses where I had weaknesses.
What are some of your hobbies outside the classroom?
My hobbies are dancing, hanging out with friends and my family.
