Parentsmove-in day with mother and daughter

Whether you are the parent of a current DC student or a prospective student, I encourage you to take advantage of the information and resources available at the links on the left side of this page.

The Defiance College campus culture is strongly shaped by the characteristics of friendliness and mutual support. We really do think of ourselves as "one big family." We understand that as parents you entrust us with your most valued possession: your children. We take that responsibility very seriously, and we are proud of the supportive environment that we can foster on this small, residential, liberal arts campus. Parents are key partners for us as we strive to foster the learning and growth of students.

Do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you or your student in this great adventure we call "college." On behalf of our entire student life team and athletic department, let me extend our heartiest welcome to you and your student. Do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions or concerns.
