4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Dean has a great atmosphere, it makes me smile as I walk through the campus especially when it is a nice day out. The dance program is also unlike most dance programs because it not only has ballet and modern but also jazz, tap, hip hop and contemporary. Dean also gives us master classes where choreographers from all over the world come and teach. Dean is just a happy place to be and is helping me grow as a person and dancer.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Dean College is definitely the right choice for me. I have not only gotten better as a dancer but I have made some friendships I will keep forever. One great memory from Dean was last year my roommate won a contest as Dean and we got to go to the So You Think You Can Dance tour, it was amazing and we had great seats.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Dean has two gyms which are highly equipped. The students who work there are helpful and they also give free granola bars away sometimes to promote healthy eating. The library is great too because it has an area where students can relax and do work. The campus also always has an event every weekend bring the college together, whether it be a dance, a band performing or a casino night, there is always something to do!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are lots of computer labs which is helpful because they are located right near the class rooms which is helpful for when I am in a hurry to print a paper and get to class. The technical support is helpful and can fix almost any problem students or teachers have. The wi-fi is through the whole campus although, sometimes like any connection can be slow.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body is very diverse here at Dean, there's a lot of different kinds of people here. I have friends from China and New Hampshire, friends who go to church every week and a friend who is an atheist and I have have straight and gay friends. The great part of all of these different people is meeting them and the fact that we all can be friends.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I haven't personally taken any online classes but some of my friends have and they told me that the teachers outlined the course so they were able to keep on track and know what was coming next. They were also able to make connections and get others opinions through online forums which I heard were helpful.

4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Dean is very expensive and I do not receive much financial aid but I do love Dean which is why I want to stay and why scholarships will help me so much.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Dean has programs online and in person group meetings for students looking for networking skills, resume builders and job markets. There is a Leadership and Success program that helps you narrow down choices for a job and is very helpful. Dean faculty help us to prepare for whats next whether it be more school or a job.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I say my dance program is the best because it offers technique classes for modern, ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and contemporary which a lot of other programs do not. The teachers are amazing and they help me to become better, they know my name and tell me what I need to work on to improve. We have great facilities that we can use outside of class time. There are internships every semester and in the summer and dancers can work in the dance building for a work study. The workload is helpful to me as a dancer because I get challenged yet I feel comfortable and successful in class which will help me in the future as a dancer.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are many options academics at Dean and there are honors classes offered that give more work if wanted. The teachers are understanding and set a standard that we should have for ourselves as students. This keeps me prepared for class and aware of what is happening. My adviser is very organized and helpful so registering for classes does not stress me out. Dean also offers study aboard opportunities for most majors.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have taken one online course. It was very convenient, and not too much of a workload.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Although I love it here and I definitely am getting a good education, I think I am paying much more than I should be. The dance training is amazing, however the academic classes are not the best. The quality of the dining center is also poor. My family is in a bad financial state, and we are not getting the amount of financial aid that we should be getting.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I have not really looked into the post-grad services.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love how small the campus is, because you form better relationships with your peers and your faculty. The faculty actually cares deeply about us and our growth as students.

Career Services: the grading system is helpful each teacher is required to post grades 4 different times with in a semester so a student can see what he or she has to work on for each class.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: my classes are very flexible after the first semester a student gets to pick and choose what classes to take and when to take them as long as we get what we need to get done.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: dean offers many activities to do during the weekend and some times during the week they have, dances at lest once a month, something called dean after dark at lest once a month, I became involve with volley ball with a group of friends and participate in zumba classes once a week.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I don't necessarily take classes on line but I have to do home work and some quizzes on line. it has its ups and downs but it gets my over all grade higher in the class.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My major is arts and entertainment management (AMGT) at first I wasn't sure if I liked it, but I became to fall in love with it. Because of the facility members and the hands on activates. I can do so much with my major in all aspects of the arts including, dance, theater, circus, museums, and much more because AMGT is so involve with the arts there is a lot of opportunities for internship (witch is required before graduation). because I'm only in my first year in the major of AMGT I am learning the very basics and I will grow with it as I get further in to the major.
