Review Dalton State College
Courses should not vary so much in content, requirements, and challenge based only on your professor. If I take Math 1101, it should not be easy (open book tests, group work, easy A, covers a few chapters) in one class and in the same course be so hard you're at math lab everytime the doors open to get extra help because the professor basically puts it out there, gives an assignment and you learn on your own, cover the entire book front to back, and take huge weighted tests, not knowing if you're doing it correctly til the test is graded and over. Surely there are curriculum standards and set requirements to go by? Why aren't they collaboratively planning this course? Same thing with English 11102, one easy A the other well you work you're self to death for a D. How can you compare gpa or course pass:fail rates? This way you can't it is not the same! Honors grads might mean I took all the easy professors and rode on others coat tails where as a C student with no HOPE money solely due to the professor or lack of, who is smarter, worked harder but when compared in an interview is not getting the job in the end...it needs to be the same! It's unfair and unethical!
It's a very challenging school unlike most affordable colleges. Studying is a must, but that is a wonderful thing. It means we're learning! The buildings are very clean and presentable. They have many events for students and extra-curricular activities. The Biology major has a lot of options at Dalton State College.
The school is hard and yes I have had troubles in some of the basic classes. It is fair though you get out what you put in. I came in to college after graduating without having to study or put forth much effort so I thought that because everyone said it was a bad college and people did not look upon it highly it would be easy... That was probably the biggest mistake I have ever made. I feel that the professors really care now that I have entered the education program professors are more like friends that truly want us to succeed. As far as my diploma not being looked at highly Dalton State had one of the best education programs in Georgia just a two years ago they were rated as the second best. That to me says something very positive about the school. The only complaint that I honestly have is that yes the parking is absolutely horrible, so get to class early!
