It’s a great local college. It’s a more Economic choice with the tutiton being far less than any state university in the area. The professors are usually very nice and try to help you succeed. There are always plenty of events going on be it the theatre, art clubs, or athletics.

Kari - 06/13/2018

Danville Area Community College is a great value for the quality of learning available there. Professors make themselves very accessible after class as well as during office hours. There are also a lot of services for students with disabilities, low income, veterans, etc. The classes are small and the tuition is affordable. I highly recommend this college.

Mary - 05/31/2018

I believe Danville Area Community College is the first school I've been to that felt like a second home. I love the views on campus and I'm allowed to stay long until night to work on essays and other school work that I wouldn't normally be able to do at home. The staff is friendly and is always looking out for the students. The teachers always make an effort to assist the students to the best of their abilities and try to provide the most in a certain subject. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a nice campus to affordably further their education, especially high school seniors looking to have a place to prepare them for a four-year institution.

Alex - 02/11/2018

It's affordable, close-knit classes but you have to walk or drive sometimes, but you really have to be on top of everything from checking your email to making sure you check up on your guidance counselor every now and then. DACC is very diverse and offers a good Nursing Program

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would tell myself to study harder, and to think seriously about my future. Most high school students, myself included do not realize the impact that their education and daily choices has on the rest of their lives. If I had known them what I know now, I would have went to college when I was young and single, instead of doing when I am 28, divorsed, and have 2 children. It is hard at such a young age to think of your life in 10 or 20 years. I would tell myself that to get anywhere in life you have to have an education, and that by not going to college, and taking my education more seriously when I was younger, I was hurting my future children. I would tell myself that if you want your children to realize that hard work is the only way to make it in this world, then you have to work hard yourself. If you want your children to know that women can support themselves, then you have to show them by example. If I could go back in time I would make different, better choices.

Danville Area Community College also helps students transition to a bigger university, especially if students come from a small high school like I did.

    I wish I had realized the importance of going to lectures and how different a college learning environment is when compared to a high school one.

But I realize that these wishes cannot come true, and I must make the best of my future, whatever it may bring.
