4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are many places to study whether by yourself or in groups. The library gives you a lot of resources. The college has a great feel.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It has been very convenient. Everyone will email back very quick. If I have any questions I can always go to their office for help.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The RN program is one of the hardest programs to get into here. There is over 100 that apply and they only pick 30. It would be better if they chose students into the program twice a year.

Career Services: The grad programs are difficult to get into. If you do get in then its a great choice for college.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: I am at school only for class. I am a returning student and a lot of the student body is right out of high school. The school has just started getting into sports so there is beginning to be school spirit.

5 College Sophomore

3 College Freshman

Facilities: There are ways to get involved. The campus just opened its first sorority chapter. I haven't really been involved enough to know how much is available.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Nursing is a very competitive area here. The program is not too big and they only accept people once every fall semester. The classes can be difficult but its understandable. To get in the program you have to meet certain grade guidelines and pass the entrance exam.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Registering for classes is really easy, usually just meet or email your professor about the classes you plan on taking and you can register yourself online. For the most part, I have been completely satisfied with the professors here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: They have a decent athletic center, the student center is okay, they have a small cafe, which isn't to great. The library is useful and has multiple study rooms. The campus usually has many little activities to offer.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: There are computers which are easily accessible in the student center, library, and writing lab. Printing is also pretty easy and very accessible

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: For the most part I have been able to schedule classes that work with my personal schedule. They have most classes offered multiple times a day. The higher level classes, however, have fewer options.

College Freshman

Career Services: I've heard of our career services and they sound pretty good. We are actually having a career day soon but I haven't personally taken advantage of these services.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience here so far has been awesome. Getting involved with sports and clubs has helped me gain new friends I never thought I would gain. I don't think I would choose to do it all over again because of the great people I've met here.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: There is a wide range of classes and times to choose from. The credits you earn hear can transfer to any other University System of Georgia college with ease.

5 College Freshman

Career Services: The Career services here are great and can help you with anything from job prospects, to career fairs, and to even helping you find out what you want to do if you're undecided in your major.

College Freshman

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses to date while attending Dalton State.

Dalton State has a nice campus and professors that seem fairly interested in their students, but most students feel that the classes are not as challenging as they should be. Students who took honors and AP classes in high school often feel overprepared when they come to DSC. However, those students who didn't take the higher-level classes usually find DSC to be fine. It all depends on the type of student.

The College is not as cliqueish as high school, but students generally don't feel universal love and a sense of welcoming from each other. The "local haunts" consist of a mall, Wal-Mart, Starbucks, and a campus volleyball court. College is supposed to be the place where you meet your best friends, fall in love, gain new insight into society, and prepare yourself for your contribution to it. Many students don't feel that DSC offers much of any of the above.
