This is my first year attending Delaware County Community College and I love it! DCCC provides many different opportunities for international students. The instructors are very professional and they are always willing to help students achieve their academic goals. The campus is clean and it also has different study areas for students. I usually stay on campus after classes to complete my homework, so that way I can ask a tutor for help. The students are nice and welcoming which made my first semester go by easily. I would definitely recommend DCCC to international students and to anyone who lives in the Delaware county district.

Delaware County Community College has been an important chapter in my higher education journey! I transferred from a private art school to DCCC because of its affordability and its convenient location to my house. At first I was nervous to attend because of the stigma surrounding community colleges, but I soon realized that DCCC students worked just as hard as anyone in a four-year. My professors and advisors definitely prepared me for taking my next steps! The arts faculty at DCCC is dedicated and always willing to support their students throughout their academic career. In addition, DCCC's graphic design program and leadership opportunities helped me land my dream internship this summer in Philadelphia!

The only downside to DCCC is that its strictly a commuter school since its a community college. However, its strong academics, supportive network of faculty and counselors, beautiful facilities, and leadership opportunities definitely make it worth the commute!
Delaware County Community College is a fantastic option for those not ready to financially or academically take on the responsibility of a 4-year school. The professors are always available to help and guide students through their courses. The counselor's office is also a great resource for any inquiries. My favorite resource available is the Learning Commons, where everything you could need to achieve academic success is right at your reach. Not only am I saving a lot of money by attending the college, but I'm making amazing relationships with students and teachers in my community that I never knew I'd make.
