I do not recommend Defiance College to anyone. The tuition went up $6,000 for next year and it was already expensive. A friend of mine was bullied on a sports team and the administration blamed the victim! The coach sided with the bully and was not honest with my teammate, her parents, or the administration. Another coach made inappropriate racial comments about another coach and is still there. The college is small and the small class sizes are good. The academics are decent and most of my professors were good. The food is terrible! I knew two people who got food poisoning from the cafe. I refused to eat there after my first semester but we still had to pay for a meal plan.
It's a great private college with plenty to offer in a decent sized community. Not too large while it still has plenty to offer, that being both the community and college. Can be considered as expensive. The education received is well worth the extra dollar paid.
I love this college. I have been here almost a year and I love everything this school has to offer. From the sports involvement to the academic achievement here. It has so many opportunities to learn, get involved, etc. It is like a family atmosphere. It's very diverse and very accepting of all races and ethnicity.
I absolutely love the energy and vibe of Defiance College. When i first stepped foot on campus i knew it was the one. Ive never felt so at home far away from home. The campus is filled with athletes that can each relate to academic achievements as well as what they do on the field. The coaches and professors ensure that your education is high priority as well as helping maintain a cooperative schedule.

When looking for the right college, don't settle. Find one that has your desired academic major, is of a comfortable size for you, has a good curriculum, and has a variety of extra-curricular activities that interest you. To make the most of your college experience, try your best. Study often and as much as you need to, but allow yourself to have a social life. Interact with other students to make friends. Don't fall into the habit of wasting the weekends away with parties and alcohol. Keep your goals, morals, and beliefs in mind; don't let anyone push you past your boundaries. Take this time to discover who you are and what you want out of life. Use the opportunity to experience being out on your own. Try to exercise regularly and eat healthy to avoid illness and depression. Don't isolate yourself. Be involved with your campus; attend school events and have fun. Have a sense of pride in who you are, and the school you attend. Having pride in your school will give you a more positive college experience. College is your time to experience life; enjoy it, don't waste it.
My classmates are very smart and dedicated, they are also inventive and strong willed.
The type of individual who should reconsider the decison to attend Defiance College is the person who feels as though he or she does not need to give effort to achieve a above average grade. Defiance College provides a wonderful faculty, excellent resources for studying, as well as helpful (and knowlagable) tutors to aid in achieving the student's desired grade. If a student does not wish to utilize these resources readily given, if needed, than this individual should reconsider his or her choice of college.

A person who wants to do good at college, but not expecting a lot of people and likes to lean new things. YOU MUST ENJOY VOLUNTEER WORK!
Through Defiance College I have been to Jamaica, New Orleans, Mexico, Detroit. I mentor as well as tutor. Also im involved in America Reads, the possibilities are endless for future students (All of the places listed above I was doing community service through a program i am in at school called Citizen Leader)
Defiance College faculty and students work together to create a friendly and diverse campus that is conducive to education in every way imaginable.
The Bonner Leadership Program is very interesting. I perform 200 hours of community service each year for a scholarship and am a memeber of the National Bonner Program.
I would have to give all of the credit to my professors as "the best thing about [my] school". Every professor gives his or her all in teaching; they make class interesting as well as exciting to attend. I am a single mother of a two year old so, I know first hand how hard it is sometimes to juggle being both a full-time student as well as being a full-time mother. The professors understand the difficulty and, without distracting from the material or coursework, they help me succeed within the classroom as well as in my degree.
I wish i would have known how much college was going to cost me so i could have saved more money and used it for my education.
I would have to say the most frustrating thing about my school is the cost to attend. The cost of tution is quite costly which causes me to be concerned financially. Also, it would be nice if the food in the cafeteria was healthy and somewhat appetizing. There is no variety either which is very disappointing.
the worst thing about my school is that meals are only offered at certain times because most students have classes during hte times that meals are offered so therfor they can not eat in the cafeteria and may not have the money to afford food from any where else.
The academics for the School of Business at Dean have been great. The technology, communication, managerial, and even (my least favorite) the math classes; have come together in a way that they really make sense and somehow in the end they always connect back together rienforcing the most important concepts. My classes have been small, and i have great personal and academic relationships with each of my professors, some who have impacted my life in a very influential way. I am very excited that I will be walking at Commencement in May, but I am also sad (a little bit) that I will be finished here, learning with the great faculty and classes that Dean has offered me for the past four years.
Asof right now I am a senior at Dean. The college has only continued to grow and from my opinion improve at an extremely rapid rate. I love the small clases and individualized attention that the students recieve at Dean. Right now I have noticed class sizes growing and this is because the college is hiring more faculty as fast as they can bt this process takes a little bit because I know that Dean is trying to hire the best professors that will fit for this school and it's students. This means that for a little while I might have to deal with a slightly greater than normal class size until the college hires more professors to adjust to the quickly growing student body.
At Dean, there are no real common stereo-types. Our sports "jocks" are very hardworking (and for the most part humble) students on campus. Sometimes the only time I see them is in class and then usually they are busy with games and practices. The other bigger group of people at Dean are all the students who are dancers or in the arts programs. They take many classes together and are also very busy students on campus, so they often tend to stick together. The great thing about Dean College is that we are a small campus and yet have a very diverse student body. We have an interesting community because we have students that come from many different walks of life, and this allows the students to learn about eachother and come to appreciate eachothers differences.
