    "COD is a blessing in disguise. I'm working with great faculty members who all have incredible resumes. I was startled when I found out some of my professors' previous work histories. For me to be working with such talented people for as little as I pay in tuition shows the power COD has."

    ""The teachers and staff are amazing. Every teacher I've had so far has helped me learn so much already, and the rest of the staff is really friendly and helpful. COD is the perfect stair-step on my ascent to success, life satisfaction, and happiness for me, and I'm happy I have the opportunity to go here."

    "COD’s been helpful in every way, starting with little things, like letting me print my paper for free because I had forgotten my wallet and the paper was due in 10 minutes, all the way to huge things like giving me amazing friends, hiring me as a student worker, and opening up new professional and academic connections."
