Advice: Although beginning your college career may seem daunting, it is important to remember that these next four years will be filled with new adventures and experiences that will ultimately shape your future. It is such an exciting opportunity to become involved in a new community that you can call home and carry with you – even after you graduate.
Defiance College provides incredible opportunities to be part of that “home” community
- from playing sports and joining organizations, to participating in service projects
and attending campus events. The tools and resources to excel academically, athletically,
and socially are readily available here at DC and
will allow students to make life-long connections with their peers, professors, and coaches. I recommend students to become active members of their new college community and to take full advantage of those resources provided in order to achieve success.
