I have had nothing but amazing experiences at Dean College. Everyone is extremely helpful. I recommend the academic coaching at least for your first semester, just to get you organized and get through any anxieties you may be having. Get involved! Dean has great clubs, and is partnered with the Kraft Organization, and so many opportunities are available.

Not worth the money. It's a school mainly for people who aren't serious about their education. They will literally take anyone (they will pay you to come here!) The food is dull and the dorms are worse. Social life isn't great since most people just stay in their rooms. Don't expect Greek Life or parties, instead expect obnoxious students and a miserable college experience.
Arts & Entertainment Business Management is an amazing Major! It is so interesting and fun to learn. My concentration is in Dance, so I also get to do my passion in some of my classes. There is so many opportunities to interact with the Theatre concentration students. The main professor Joel Thayer is amazing!
