    Dalton State boasts about being one of the most affordable schools in the country. They offer a lot of degree programs and classes for a very nominal tuition. This is a very convenient option for many students that choose to transfer out later to a school with a more prestigious name or for one whose major isn't offered here.

    Dalton State College is known for being one of the cheapest colleges in the country. You are offered financial aid which makes it even more affordable. I feel like I am getting the best bank for the buck. I am involved in a great school that is getting me well prepared for my career for a very cheap price! What more can a broke college student ask for?

    Dalton State College seems to be a pretty good college other than the little things and a good place for myself to get and have a education. Dalton State should do better with housing. You fill out a form, on likes and dislikes and your age. If your a certain age, then you should have a roommate with someone around your age.
