Overall the college offers a broad range of programs appealing to a diverse student population. Courses are available at multiple campuses and online making classes very accessible to students. Tuition is affordable and offers great value for the educational investment. I certainly haven't experienced any negatives with DMACC but there could almost be too many program choices! There is always something else a person can learn here! In addition, the college has lots of extracurricular programs, student groups, and a strong student activities council offering fun and interesting events for student involvement throughout the semester.
