I may not know too much about DBU but from what I know, students will prosper after graduating from this school. The school offers many job opportunities which helps the students experience real life jobs. The student career prospects seem very secure and leading to advancement. The value of a degree from this school is very beneficial because students learn quickly and excel in their subjects. The alumni at DBU are able to share great testimonies which I believe will change the lives of others who are experiencing similar hardships. The employers are very lenient when it comes to recruiting. The employers are always open to new recruitment. The quality of the career center and services are great! The staff is so helpful, not only with careers, but also supportive with signing up for classes. I am so blessed to have been able to get accepted into this school.

I love living on campus! If I didn't, it'd be hard to have much of a social life. The dorms aren't the best, but they're also not the worst. The closets are super spacious which makes up for less than spacious rooms. The apartments are great! They've got an awesome kitchen with everything you could want in it - although they are a little small. There are two bathrooms which is nice though. And we have access to swimming pools and the gym, so that's grand. Townhomes are the next level up - they've got more space for more people. And the Brownstones are just plain beautiful. They're the most expensive because they're the nicest.

There are a few dorms at DBU. They aren't co-ed, so there are 2 guy dorms and 2 girl dorms. Spence would probably be the nicest girl dorm. The rooms are newer and you get your own bathroom that you share with suitemates. There are also apartments, townhomes and brownstones on campus as well. This housing is for upperclassmen only. They are more spacious and a lot nicer than the dorms! There are a couple pools at the dorms and townhomes. Social atmosphere is good since you are living so close to people. If you put yourself out there, you definitely have the opportunity to meet lots of people. Sometimes your roommates/housemates will become your best friends. Cost is average. After doing the math, it can actually be a bit cheaper to move into upperclassmen housing after your freshman year rather than staying in the dorms. Meal plans are pretty expensive so when you take that out of the cost and replace it with a grocery budget, you save a ton of money. All upperclassman housing is at the bottom of the hill so you have to walk all the way up to class everyday which is a bummer. But it beats the dorms! Housing process is pretty easy as well. The have lease signing every semester and you can reserve rooms in the dorms once you're here for a semester.
