Dalton State College Reviews
Dalton State College is a great college. One thing amazing about Dalton State is the student life. The school always has events happening around campus anyone can attend. The food on campus is also great. Peeples hall offers a Starbucks, there are vending machines all around campus, and then there is the cafe that offers different food everyday. The school is also very diverse. They have a high amount of latinos enrolled at the college, which is great because they are involving a minority to makeup a large amount of the school, unlike most colleges. Dalton State is also extremely affordable. The school itself offers many scholarships that any student can apply to once they are accepted. With HOPE, PALE, or both you can end up having a free education at a school that is apart of the university system. The public safety department is great and will help any student get from class to class.
I love Dalton State college! The atmosphere is fun and accepting. It is very diverse and the professors really care about their students education. Dalton State provides many resources including, counseling, lgbt support, bird feeders, and many more!
As an entering freshman, the Dalton State College campus opens the door to several opportunities for not only me but to the other students that also attend the school that look forward to success in their lives later on. The academics provided at the school are at a precise and excellent level with a very reasonable price compared to other colleges and universities. When you roam the halls of DSC, you are met with individuals of many different races and ethnicities who are accepting and loving to your own. The campus size is perfect for an individual who prefers a small area of residence as well as the location which resides on well-maintained mountains. Dalton State College is an excellent choice in pursuing your education with reasonable prices, guaranteed safety around the campus, and no discrimination among peers or professors.
