Pastor Dane Aaker, Centerpoint Church, speaks about Oak Valley College and the vision of its founder in one of his sermons.

OVC is changing my future. I really didn’t think that college would be my thing. I was really, really nervous. This school has totally taken that anxiety away. Everyone is really helpful so it makes me feel like I can achieve my goals for the future.

Today, we explore the question of the best when it comes to the college rankings and more specifically, the undergraduate college experience. 

Most parents begin with the US News and World Reports, "Best Colleges" ranking system. Within that system, parents and students find various categories, which have been tweaked and refined over decades to come up with a score for colleges and universities. 

With Congress looking to reform the tax code and provide new tax breaks, student loans are, once again, part of the national conversation. The New York Times features an interesting article about the current debate.

How did we get here? Why has student loan deb become a major topic of debate? Where will we end up? 

Oak Valley College offers a debt-free Bachelor of Arts in Business. Some students ask about student loans. Thinking that is the only way they can pay for college. OVC does not have them (student loans), and you do not need them. Too many young people are thinking that the only way to earn a bachelor's degree is to go into debt, tens of thousands of dollars in debt. At OVC, you can pay your tuition with a part-time job.
