What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?


The stereotype of students at DMACC is that we are a bunch of extra poor students who can't afford to go to a university. This stereotype is completely inaccurate. Most students who go to DMACC are simply there because they are choosing to be wise with their money, or lack thereof. In reality, unless your parents are paying your way through college, you are going to be a broke college student no matter what school you attend. However, by attending DMACC, you have the opportunity to have a great first two years of college for a fraction of the cost. This will help you later on in life if you are looking to not acquire debt.
