Quote: "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever!"

Advice: College is a very exciting time of your life! It is a chance to learn and grow both within your specific academic interest and as a person. Attending Defiance College, I was able to get involved in a variety of organizations that taught me to live each day to the fullest, learn every day, and become engaged in classroom discussion and out-of-the-box thinking. Learning experiences come through classes, athletic events, and service learning experience. It is my advice to all students that they take advantage of all the opportunities and experiences put in front of them during college. It will really help you in understanding who you are and the impact you can make in the world.

Defiance College is a place to have great learning and growing opportunities! Defiance College's mission - to know, to understand, to lead, and to serve - assists in developing students into well-educated and global citizens! There are priceless experiences to be had at Defiance College, and I encourage you to come see what opportunities DC has to offer you! I challenge you to take the step to experience the best of both worlds at DC and find out what DC's "Small College experience - Big Opportunities" is all about!
