What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
1. Make sure to schedule a visit as soon as possible, no one can experience DC well through a pamphlet or website.
2. Prepare for the weather: it is frequently windy year round, cold in the winter, and warm in August-September.
3. Talk to DC students, if you ask an admissions director for a student's e-mail or phone number they'll be happy to help.
4. Don't fret about freshman year.
Bryan from Defiance, OH
Find upperclassmen as soon as you get here and ask them about their old books. Most of the profs will use the same books for several years and you can buy books a whole lot cheaper from someone who has already taken the class.
Clairice from Smithville, OH
Study hard! You will need to study but there is The Learning Commons here and they will help you with homework, pre-reading a paper, and will also improve your note taking skills.
Melanie from Medina, OH
This is a great place to go, it really brings out a social side of you even if you are shy.
Daryl from Toledo, OH
Stay on task, do your work, go to class, don't be late, and participate in the College Activities that help us communicate with others.
Ashleigh-Beth from Urbana, OH
A tip for a prospective student would be to make sure all documents are filled out before his or her arrival. Also, to make a list of questions to ask.
Christopher from Fort Wayne, IN
I suggest getting involved in as many things as possible, many give you the opportunity for additional scholarship money, and it helps you meet new people.
Elena
Get involved and try to keep your business to yourself. The school is small, so it is easy to get involved and have friends but if you spread your business the school will get really small really quickly. If you love service and to succeed this is a great place!
RACHAEL from Berea, OH
Choose a school that you think is right for your major and always visit the school and request to go to one of the class to feel how is like.
