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.
I enjoy how hands on learning the teaching is. The learning environment is amazing. I wish the campus was located in a better part of the neighborhood, but it still is safe on campus. I like the online class varieties offered also.
