I studied at this University and I can tell you my experience; I had great experiences with great professors that taught me great and real things. I see UDC as a great opportunity for getting my education in the United States at low cost and smart way. I met great professors at UDC and I'm glad to belong to this family. Now, what is the negative part? Well, they must improve their administrative management and customer service system, in this part, you must do 90% of follow-up in everything because they will do only 10%. I am sad to say this because I know there are new people trying to change this issue, but in my experience, even the "Gurus" were not 100% accurate. However, I believe the University is working hard for fixing their deficiencies and I know they will improve their quality and service for sure. I wish them good luck!
Review University of the District of Columbia
I like the fact that the school is diversity and that they take on the needs of all students. I felt appreciated and I felt like got a fair chance to experience higher education at this land grant university. I appreciate this school, staff, professors and administrative for supporting all students through their college experience. I would want them to have better technology in the classrooms and also financial aid process is slow.
Proudly of being, part of firebird which actually known as name of the university.
My experience still and always been wonderful, and the university provide such great programs with guaranteed repetition.
