Before attending Del Mar College, I acquired mixed reviews about the college. Many would say that if I stayed and did my two years here at Del Mar, then I would stay and later attend TAMUCC. They compared the school to The University of Texas at Austin which is nationally ranked as a top university. I had my differences but I chose to apply and later got accepted to Del Mar and man it really changed my life. I was going through a financial crisis and still wanted to continue my education, and Del Mar College really made it work! Not only does Del Mar have a wide variety of majors and programs to choose from, their classes are all transferable to other colleges and also are some of the cheapest classes a college student in Texas could pay for. I recently met up with a couple of friends that actually attended the UT and TAMU and I was better off. Not only is their tuition substantially more expensive then mine, but academically, they were failing their classes and I maintained a 3.5 GPA at Del Mar College. Overall, Del Mar College has been a terrific experience with multiple oppourtunities to better your life and also helpful tutoring session across the campuses. I give the college an "A+."

When I first started College I attended a University and thought that, that was the place for me. However after 2 years I made the decision to attend a smaller college because it was closer to me, money got tight, and I was ready to move on with my life. I absolutely love the fact that Del Mar College is a lot smaller because I come from a small town so the class at Del Mar feel more at home I have small classes instead of being in classes of 300 people. When you are in a smaller college and smaller classes your professor actually care about you and treat you like an actually person not just a pay check. I would say that if you are trying to get your life going and are not in to the frat/sorority life and still acting like a high schooler then the best place to attend is Del Mar! You will be in class with people that have a family or working on starting a family that are no longer about the party life but about the real life. When it comes to Del Mar College I would have to say that we stand out because our school actually cares about us as people not just as a pay check. Del Mar has respect for us and is there to help with anything that you can possible think of . If I could go back from day one personally I would of never attended a university because I was at a different part in my life then the kids at the university were.

Some professors are rude and too tough on students. However, if you ask peers about which professors to take and look into it, you can pick some greta professors. I've had some absolutely wonderful professors that i know i will be choosing again. Registering for classes is great if you took the time to search and schedule them before hand. The workload is tough, but if you plan and sceldule your school around your daily life you can make time to get it done with no promlem. Make it a priority and you're good. Del Mar has a great online tutoring program for wnglish that has definitely helped me with my writing!
