University of the District of Columbia Reviews

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!

As a new comer to the college scene, I expected the college life to be as everyone keeps saying it would. I imaged living on campus, with freedom to party and sleep late because classes don't start till 1:30 pm, but no. My major is computer science and I had to start on the community college which wasn't what I expected either. Classes reminded me of high school, egger students ready to go home or to work, playful classmates. Overall even though UDC's rating from me is low, I still enjoyed myself and now am changing my major to Digital Media and moving to the main campus and yes, living on campus.
6 months ago i moved to America for college. I expected to feel lonely and homesick but University of the district of Colombia took me in their family and made me feel comfortable and at home. The school is amazing, has amazing staff and students and if you fail a class it's not because of any professor, it is because of you because they help you and try their best for everything at get a A or B. The school is very diverse, the campus is small but in a urban area. The campus is very safe , the campus police are very protective but friendly and there are fun activities for everyone
