4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: As far as working with my schedule, it couldn't possibly be easier to get things done around my time. Whenever I schedule classes I'm able to tell my adviser my schedule and she fits classes around it.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: I ABSOLUTELY love our online courses! I enjoy being able to easily work at my own pace fit to my own schedule. And most professors are very available if you do need help with something.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Every professor I've come across has been a delight. All professors appear to be there for their students more than the money. Class size is great and the school is constantly trying to add new courses and degrees.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The program I plan on entering has a very high turnover rate. I believe it is 97% within 6 months of graduating. That's reassuring.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The programs are designed to tailor your specific major and you don't have to waste a lot of time with pre-course work.

Overall Experience: I feel like Dalton State has made the transfer from high school to college easy. It has a very comfortable atmosphere and I really enjoy it.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: It is all easy! I looked everything up myself. I told my adviser what classes I wanted to take, I gave them all the information and they signed me up right away!

Depending on the Professor, you might have a light or heavy workload. Most of the time though it's light.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love how my college is small. If you need a one on one with the professor? No problem! It's easy to get into study groups as well. The people are kind and generally care about you here.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a small college, so it doesn't have super specific degrees. I have not really heard anything about alumni from my college, I think that has to do with our 17% graduation rate. Most people I know transfer colleges before they graduate.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The college is good, but you don't really get into the swing of things until after your first year. After that is when you learn all the "Ins and Outs". It would be nice to have someone to guide you in the beginning.

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Classes are small which is a double edge sword:

Easy access to learning and the professor, which is awesome but then there is the issue of offerings.

Easier professors courses fill up too fast and you have no other options but to take the bad one and fail or pull a D then loose your hope money.

3 College Student

Online Courses: I prefer an actual class

3 College Student

Overall Experience: There should be a guide for students that let them know which professors are concidered easy A, less work required or which are definitely on your own to learn. This would help new students the most!

3 College Student

Overall Experience: They really don't help you try to get jobs or a career through internships as much as necessary.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: See last comment on unfairness

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Courses should not vary so much in content, requirements, and challenge based only on your professor. If I take Math 1101, it should not be easy (open book tests, group work, easy A, covers a few chapters) in one class and in the same course be so hard you're at math lab everytime the doors open to get extra help because the professor basically puts it out there, gives an assignment and you learn on your own, cover the entire book front to back, and take huge weighted tests, not knowing if you're doing it correctly til the test is graded and over. Surely there are curriculum standards and set requirements to go by? Why aren't they collaboratively planning this course? Same thing with English 11102, one easy A the other well you work you're self to death for a D. How can you compare gpa or course pass:fail rates? This way you can't it is not the same! Honors grads might mean I took all the easy professors and rode on others coat tails where as a C student with no HOPE money solely due to the professor or lack of, who is smarter, worked harder but when compared in an interview is not getting the job in the end...it needs to be the same! It's unfair and unethical!

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My job allows me to work either morning or nights so I can take morning or night classes. However when you get to upper level classes it seems you have to be on campus every day. I think it could be nice that upper level classes are only offered two days a week. That way for those of use who have to travel some can save a little gas for their car and time traveling for just one class that wasn't offer on the other two days.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Sometimes you run into having two tests on the same day and if you don't do some type of group study it can get hard. I love group study. You get a new look from so many people that it makes studying fun. And you remember a lot. And can pass classes with ease.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Most everyone I know that has gone here has gotten a job within six months to a year. And I mean a job they love in their field of study.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Like I said I'm coming back. And they are always getting new programs of study.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Once you're part of the Roadrunner Nations you're always a part of it.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: They have new programs being added each year for anyone.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm returning to Dalton State for my second degree. I love this place! It's small enough that you don't have to run from class to class. They have a lot to offer or everyone as long as you get involved.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I love the LPN program I am excited to be going into a field that I love and want to work. The best is yet to come.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I had one online class I am more of a hands on person so it wasn't all that to me.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
