Dalton State is a nice hometown college. If you don't want to go far from home I would definitely recommend it. The teaching staff is phenomenal.
Meaghan from Cohutta, GA
The teachers are great and actually do one on one unlike other colleges I heard. My teachers always make jokes and know how to teach difficult things. Overall the staff and students are amazing.
Michelle from Dalton, GA
At first all the paperwork was very confusing when dealing with the office. However, after that the classes were amazing and the teachers were awesome. I recommend this college to anyone who is looking for a small town feel with small, personable class sizes
Andrew from Epworth, GA
DSC is a small yet growing college. It's a fun file activity college with great staff and teachers. If I had to give Dalton a rate from 0-10, I would give them an 8.
