I like the support team that Dacc trio staff members offers. Computer rooms are always readily and available. There is plenty of tutoring centers, with great tutors available to help you with problems or concerns. The campus is very easy to get around on. If you talk to the right person, you will be sure to get the help that you are needing or in search for. However, I dislike how only one or two blacks are accepted into DACC programs. I hear of some many people with good grades being denied entry into the Nursing program, many say it is all in who you know when it is comes to being accepted. Parking could be better, if your taking classes over at Mary Miller your screwed when its game season or career day because, you have to basically walk from another parking area and hope the security do not hassle you over parking, just to make it to class on time.

My experience at DACC has gone pretty well. Aside from our college being located on the "ghetto" side of town, the campus looks nothing like the surrounding area, it's nice, clean, and safe. The class sizes are also really nice, we have fairly small classes which allows for more one-on-one sessions with our professors. Speaking of professors, the ones I've had are very nice. They really help you when you need it, even if that means setting their own time aside to assist you and even give extensions on projects. As for what DACC could improve on, as silly as it is, we need a coffee shop, and I know that our student body would benefit from having a nice cup of coffee before class. The majors offered are nice, however, more students have to transfer because their major isn't offered, including myself. Thus far my experience at DACC has been very good, and I know it will continue to be that way as my time their comes to an end.
I feel that this school is like a second home to me. I spent many hours after classes working on homework and it was always a great contrast to my hectic home life. I feel as though my work got done faster at school as opposed to at home.

The staff was always supportive of my efforts to achieve my associates degree and transfer to my dream school. The services, especially the TRIO Student Support Services, had been extremely helpful in keeping me aware of how many credits I'll need to transfer. They suggested classes to help me reach that goal as well as kept in mind what my preferences are and what areas I could improve upon so that a compromise could be reached.

I would definitely recommend this school and hope future students find a second home here as I did.
