This is a great school and is affordable. I went here for my AS degree and really enjoyed it. The campuses were easily navigated and the staff was always helpful. Every semester I went and met with academic advising to ensure I was on the proper path for graduation. I would recommend this college.

AUGUST - 01/28/2021

I think Daytona State is a good option. It's not the biggest campus and there aren't any dorms but the education is on par with bigger universities and it's also extremely affordable. The majority of the professors are helpful and care about their student's success.

  4. Describe the students at your school.

    The diversity at Daytona State College is absolutely phenomenal. I am often in a class with students as young as dual enrolling fifteen years old high school students to seventy-five year old adult education students. Even in most working environments, this age diversity is not existent. I find it quit amazing to see this broad age range striving for the same goal, their degree. Daytona State College motivates their students to do their best in school; it is very obvious their message has gotten through by looking at so many ambitious students.

  7. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    Daytona Beach Community College is no longer a community college, but a state college. The most frustrating thing about my school is there are not a lot of sports teams, or school spirit like there is at big universities, and I have always wanted to experience that part of college. The students dread going to school because it is just like high school for them. The teachers treat us like we are high-schoolers and I wish they treated us like actual college students even if it is not a bigger university.

    What is most unique about Dayona State College is that the instructors are willing to dedicate there time to you in a small classroom setting. The classes offered at DSC are always small. I have never been in a class with more than thirty people,which is about the size of a high school class. Not only do you recieve more individual attention at D.S.C., but there are computer labs available for intermediate math and english classes. This provides some extra help students that are in need.

  14. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    This school, like any school, is what you make of it. There are great teachers and even better programs. This is a great place to start your academic life and to push you on to greatness. It's a relatively small school, but it has a lot of spirit The thing I really love about Daytona State College is the atmosphere of ambition. The school's main passion is to assist students realize their dreams and chase after them. The faculty realizes that most students are going back to school or are on their way to another school, so they do their best to send them on with as much know-how as possible. The thing about any community college is that there are lots of negative or derogatory remarks made. But, like I first said, any educational experience is what you make of it.

  15. What are the academics like at your school?

    Academics are okay. This is a community college whose student body is made up of people trying to get back into school or trying to get to a different school. But there are several excellent teachers who have a passion for their subject. To get a truly great academic experience look for challenging classes, but if you're looking for easy A's you'll find them.
