Kick off your college career at the mighty Owens Community College in Perrysburg, Ohio (in the Toledo area). This junior college is quite large, offering 130 areas of study, but is able to keep the small-class dynamic in most of its programs. If you’re working full-time or not able to make it to class, Owens has an online classroom option that will accommodate your personal and educational needs. There is no doubt that you will be saving tons of money on tuition while attending OCC. This is a great place lay down your foundation before you move onto a 4-year college and other big things!
Because it’s a commuter school, Owens does not provide on-campus housing, and many of its students are commuting to school from the nearby community. Although many OCC students may be sticking to their parents’ houses, how much more amazing would it be to have independence with your own apartment? Immerse yourself in the college experience by checking out our rental listings for Toledo and neighboring cities. These pretty brick buildings are beckoning for you to at least take a tour and consider them for your new home. Our guides have made the apartment search simpler, so you really have no excuse.
It’s important to join the many organizations and clubs on campus to bond with your fellow classmates and develop a more college-oriented community. Get involved in one of Owens’ most popular organizations, Owens Outlook, the school’s newspaper, join the intramural dodgeball team, or start your own club if you can’t find what you’re looking for. Perrysburg has many great restaurants, and Toledo is a big city that will provide hour and hours of entertainment outside of the classroom.
