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.
To be honest, when I made my first college choices, Dalton State was not a consideration. But after visiting, I fell in love, and never looked back. I will graduate in the Spring of 2019 with my B.A. in Communications, and honestly recommend it to anyone who would love to save some money, and still get a quality education. DSC is awesome!
