University of the District of Columbia Reviews
I am an international student transferring in this university to finish my Bachelor Degree, and I really like it. The teacher are engaged in their work and helpful to make you success in your field. The university is open to diversity and understand well the challenge to study abroad!
The University of the District of Columbia has an intimate setting affording students the opportunity to be familiar with their classmates and professors. It provides quality education at a reasonable cost. The course work and training that I am receiving at UDC would cost enormous sums at other universities. I like to call it education without sacrificing my financial future. The course work has been very challenging to prepare students for the work place. Our employment center is excellent and supports undergraduates, graduates and alumni. Our professors and president are relatable and are often seen intermingling with the student body.
This school is extremely low quality. I enrolled in order to avoid paying for a dorm since I live about 12 minutes away from campus. The financial aid office constantly messed up students' money and scholarships, including mine. I had several professors that taught poorly and refused to listen to simple criticism. There is a building on campus that does not have heat and keeps all stairwells locked, which is a safety hazard in case of a fire. This school receives PLENTY of money but instead of investing it into maintaining/upgrading student life, it goes into the pockets of the higher up employees. Once I began school here, my health suffered. I got constant migraines and sharp pains from stress. You would be better off not attending college than coming here. Save yourself while you can. The scenery outside the campus is very nice though.
