OAKLAND COUNTY, Michigan –OCC business student Robert Moffa presents like a seasoned CEO. When asked what advice he would give students he replies, “Work hard, focus and give 110%, and you will get nothing but great results.”
He appreciated this mantra working in occupational therapy as his first career out of college where he helped patients overcome their own obstacles. He refined it watching his father grow a successful commercial business in two states – Michigan and Florida.
Fast-forward more than a decade later when Moffa began picking up business classes to fill a void he was feeling in his career. It was then he became interested in switching things up for himself.
He credits the atmosphere at Oakland Community College as one of the most named reasons individuals choose to come to OCC.
“The faculty at OCC definitely came across to me as very upbeat, very outgoing, very willing to go to the next step or go to the next level on whatever it takes to accommodate you with anything that you may need for any of the programs or any of the classes that I may be taking,” Moffa said.
He also found every demographic represented on the college’s five campuses across Oakland County, adding to the experience of higher learning and juxtaposition to business.
“Even if students aren’t going in the business program it’s still a very business-like atmosphere with students of all different ages and cultures and backgrounds,” Moffa said. “It’s amazing. It’s an enjoyable environment to be in.”
More than just an amazing atmosphere, OCC has award-winning faculty that always go the extra mile to ensure our students achieve their academic goals.
What’s next for Moffa? Following in his father’s footsteps and succeeding with great results.
