DWU is an excellent school with dedicated staff and faculty. I that a small town vibe with lots of opportunities. I can honestly say I learned more at DWU than I did in graduate school. The winters can be bitter and the summers can be hot and windy, but if you can tolerate the weather this school will help you achieve your dreams.

Tell us about your college experience.

Not really a good fit for me. I was not a partier or a drinker so I did not fit in with the campus community. The classes were too easy for me.


Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

No, psychology is all common sense. The degree was just a piece of paper.


What advice can you offer other students?

Go for something you don't currently know, do something different.
