Overall, I have enjoyed the professors I have had. I would not choose to attend this college again, however, if I were to do it all over. The students are not friendly and a large number of them are involved in athletics, so unless you are in a sport you can feel left out.

The school has cut too many programs without student interest.

Defiance College offers the students there every opportunity to succeed and it's up to the students to own their education. However, sometimes the student life department hinders the experience.
