Quote: “What I do is based on powers we all have inside us; the ability to endure; the ability
to love, to carry on, to make the best of what we have – and you don't have to be
a ‘Superman’ to do it.”

I transferred to Defiance College in the 2007-2008 school year. Best decision of my life! I met wonderful people here at Defiance College and in the community. Throughout my three years at DC, I was engaged in many activities. I was part of the football team, played soccer, was manager of the basketball team, and was part of the service learning community. The best experience I would say was that I got to travel to Chile for two weeks. DC has a lot to offer. Just make sure that you take advantage of everything through many roles, whether as a service leader, McMaster Scholar, or being a part of an organization on campus.
I look forward to speaking with you to explore your higher education choice. Best of luck!
