Small community. Pretty Good food. Not very much to do on campus or off. Lacks convenient shopping within walking distance. Students generally are relatively apathetic, and Disrespectful to Professors. The workload is pretty light. Education, at least in Freshman year, is of pretty low value. Decent amount of support for students. Students and faculty are friendly for the most part. Very Safe. Limited selection of courses and courses can be difficult to get into. In my opinion, not worth the cost.

What I love about Dean are the small classes and the ability to get involved in leadership positions in the various clubs and organizations. The teachers try their best to make sure that the students are involved and participating in discussions inside and outside of the classrooms. Due to the fact that Dean is a small school, anyone who wants to get more experience being part of a team or even leading a team has that opportunity to easily get involved and gain that experience. The advice I give to new students is that, you’re experience at Dean is what you make of it; get involved (it’s easier than you think), make new friends (your network of people start with the friends you make in college), and don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
Dean College is a great school, it is basically impossible to fail. Dean offers so many resources and free tutoring/help sessions. The food in the dining hall is delicious and offers lots of healthy options for everyone. (Vegans, Vegetarians, gluten free, meat eaters ect.)

There is NO Greek life on campus, not much of a party scene here unless you have friends who live in the condos or have a car. Dean has many study abroad options with access to over 50+ destinations a student can travel to. I wish Dean had a pool or foreign language classes (Spanish,french, german,latin)
