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.
UDC has a unique campus housing situation. Students are afforded the opportunity to live in one the most expensive parts of DC at a reasonable rate. The units are pretty close to the campus. There are underground grocery shopping options, swimming pools, tennis courts, grill areas and much more. The most unfortunate part is that the last year that the university will offer it to students is the 2015-2016 academic year.
