DCTC is a great school! My overall experience with DCTC has been awesome. DCTC is a unique school, since it really stands out and is well known among the community. I know some out of state students that are students here at DCTC.

I would definitely choose this school again because it's located in a nice quiet and calm location south of the metro. Just enjoying and minding your own business is relaxing. It's a different feeling.
Review Dakota County Technical College
The overall experience of DCTC, is wonderful. They will help you in any way that they can. The financial aid office, will help families with food, clothing as well as paying your bills to keep your lights and heat on. I would highly choose DCTC again, and I would tell others to come, my advisor is so wonderful, he will go out of his way to help you with what every help you need. You can also call him any time, he's their for you like clock work. Harold!
I appreciated the level of expertise the teacher shared. They were practicing architects or had been in the past so they could really interact well with the students and knew what we needed to know. After school they have been helpful with fitting into the industry and finding opportunities. During school they helped outside of class with different projects. They really focused on teaching practical skills that would serve us well once we graduated and entered the workforce.
