Hello my wonderful blog readers! It has been a while since the last time I posted something, man! (Okay only like a week, but still…long time for me!) Our fall musical, Oklahoma! is opening THIS Wednesday, and almost all of the shows are sold out…surely not a show to be missed! If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, there are literally only a few left, so hop on it! So anyway, that’s the reason why I haven’t been as attentive to the wonderful Dean College Blog…I apologize!
So, as a Student Ambassador for Dean College, I get a lot of questions while I give my weekly tour (10 am on Fridays…if you wanted to take a tour with me!) about Dean…”Do you like the food?” (by the way, the answer is YES)…”What’s the weekend life here?” (one word…fun!)…but most importantly, I get “Why did you decide to come to Dean?”
Well my friends, YOU’RE IN LUCK. Because this whole blog post is about why I decided to go to Dean!
First and foremost, Dean is a really special school. I know that almost every ambassador from every school will say that, but I truly, 100% believe that Dean is special. Dean is special because it was designed for students who are the different learners, the different student…basically, Dean treats you as a person and not just a student.
When I was in high school, I wasn’t the best student until junior year, and I definitely needed help. I needed a lot of hands-on practice (for instance, I would have to write out the math problems instead of just taking the notes. Or I would need to write out the sentences in English class to understand proper grammar; I couldn’t just sit and look at the notes and understand the material). Dean helps people like me grow as a student because they understand that everyone learns differently, so they cater to that. And that’s awesome! And really helpful.
Dean College is almost very much a family atmosphere. Not only because it’s a small school, but also because the professors, faculty, and staff care about you as a person, and really want to see you succeed. And when you know that someone wants you to succeed, then that will just help you that much more.
So yes, the food is tasty, the dances are fun, our mascot is a cute bulldog, and our campus is pretty; but Dean is much more than that. Those things are just bonuses – really good bonuses, at that! – but Dean is a great place to be in general. From our classes to our professors, Dean will help you grow in all aspects of your life. And that, to me, is pretty sweet!!
Until next time, folks!
