Advice: The college search process is no easy task. Take your time when deciding on criteria that you want in a school. Make sure to visit the schools you are interested in as most times you’ll be able to tell if you like the school by the atmosphere of being on campus. Also, there is nothing wrong with visiting a school more than one time, especially if you’re narrowing down on a final decision. A second visit can be a make or break it deciding factor.

Defiance College has a lot to offer potential students. Students here get small class sizes, hands on learning experiences, many clubs to get involved in to broaden their interests, and athletic opportunities. 

Some of the best things you can do as a student is to be involved, make friends with students/faculty/staff, and try new things to grow as a person!
