I have had nothing but amazing experiences at Dean College. Everyone is extremely helpful. I recommend the academic coaching at least for your first semester, just to get you organized and get through any anxieties you may be having. Get involved! Dean has great clubs, and is partnered with the Kraft Organization, and so many opportunities are available.

Arts & Entertainment Business Management is an amazing Major! It is so interesting and fun to learn. My concentration is in Dance, so I also get to do my passion in some of my classes. There is so many opportunities to interact with the Theatre concentration students. The main professor Joel Thayer is amazing!

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!
