    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    THE SKINNY OF COLLEGE LIFE AT DBU

    Because of its low teacher to student ratio. I believe it is 18 students to 1 professor. Also, because of the financing available. The office of financial aid was very accommodating and was willing to work out a payment plan with me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum was challenging but very relevant to my needs. As a teacher now, DBU built capacity and adequately prepared me for the demands of the workforce. From technology courses to math and social sciences, all the curriculum used the latest editions of books.
