DCAD is a very interesting school. As i began my journey to this school, it was sunshine and rainbows. The Academic classes could be better if the Art history professors remained at this school. There is no productive activities that happen outside of classes besides RA activities which is a distraction from the mountain of homework you must complete. The campus life is dull including terrible housing, and a crime filled environment. Last year someone was actually shot next to my dorms. The food would've been poor but they stepped it up this year. Overall, i'll only recommend this school if you enjoy being in a dark room for the most of your day.

Personally, the experience I've had at this school is better than I could have ever expected. The class size is quite small, which makes it feel almost like highschool, but much more inspiring. It's a gorgeous 5-story building with great professors and small, personal classes. I feel as though I'm getting the best possible education for such a low tuition. My only gripe is the area it is located in and the lack of willingness to listen to student opinions and suggestions. However, I feel completely prepared for my future and at my next college for my bachelor's.
If I were to describe Delaware College Of Art And Design In 2 words it would be opportunity and success. Within the very short 6 months I have been at DCAD I have gotten better grades that I have never gotten in high school, I’ve even had the opportunity of getting an internship (of my dreams). I have nothing but good things to say about DCAD
