Daytona State College Reviews
This is my second year at Daytona State and I have seen the great opportunities and amazing benefits that they offer. Their library is amazing the available research materials is life-saving. They just put in a student center which has been a great help for study groups and online school. However, the new updates to this year's admissions process was ridiculous! I got dropped out of my Fall semester class three times not because of lack of payment but because of the system's bugs. It took a lot of time and planning to be in my classes this semester. Not only that it is not easily accessible to students.
I love Daytona State College. It's affordable, and my professors are amazing! I'm able to connect with people who are like me, which makes for a great social atmosphere, and classes are smaller, which makes learning much easier as there is more time to ask questions. One of the things that I would like to see improved would be the schedule flexibility for the satellite campuses. Not all of the courses are offered at the satellite campuses, which is understandable, but I'd like to see more options.
Daytona State is great community college for those seeking higher education at any age or stage life. I've been back after a couple life events prevented me from finishing and the transition back into college life has always been smooth and easy. The lasses are challenging enough without being overwhelming and the facilities and services provided by the college are all very helpful. The online systems used to sign up for classes and search programs and courses could use some tweaking. I sometimes have trouble with pages or information loading or simply finding the information I need, resorting to just calling the school or showing up in person. Other than that it's a great, affordable school for people in all walks of life!
