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.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The workload all depends on how much you want to take on and handle. With hard work and dedication you will do well in the program of study.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I use ratemyprofessor.com to find out about some professors for future classes and ask around about who I should take for certain course. Class registration is super easy to do.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: I joined my schools international club and never realized how diverse the campus was until then. There are students of every kind of background you just have to go out and get involved to find them!

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The Student center needs a modern touch to it. It's slowly growing in to a top rate campus but the campus can be dead after classes

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: If you live in the apartments on campus you might want your own computer and printer so as to not rely on the schools computers. Wifi is slower in the apartments than on campus. But overall plenty of computers and printers for you to use.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's a cheap school but a great education and part of the University System of Georgia so your credits will transfer over to other USG schools no problem.

College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am not really in the upper levels of my degree yet, so I can't really say.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors, curriculum, class registration process, workload, etc. are all fine.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, I'm enjoying attending this school. The professors, for the most part, have been quite helpful when I need them.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The student center is okay. I like how large it is. I feel like I can have my own space away from everyone and focus on my studies. There really isn't much to do there, though. There are two pool tables and two ping-pong tables, both of which are always occupied by the same people every time I pass by. There should be more things like this available.

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I don't really have any experience with this, and can not review it.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I don't really have any experience with this, so I can not review it.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: So far, I've only been able to take classes at night, and so far I've been accommodated nicely.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Dalton State is a pretty low-cost school. The online courses are a bit pricey, but otherwise, I'm quite pleased with the tuition.

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.
