Why Choose The Mountain Campus?
THe Mountain Campus Experience
There is at least one characteristic that all Dalton State faculty and staff share in common at the Mountain Campus – a palpable, unwavering sense of confidence in our students’ capacity to achieve. Sometimes, that enduring confidence sustains them even when they don’t believe in themselves. No matter the odds to overcome, we believe in them always, and they come to sense, trust and borrow that belief until it eventually becomes their own. This is the Mountain Campus Experience!
While we strive to make it easy to begin your Dalton State journey, the journey itself won’t be without its challenges. It should be challenging – any worthwhile educational endeavor is. We want to push our students precisely because we’re so confident they can not only handle it, but they can thrive in the challenge. When our students graduate, they’ll walk across the stage with a powerful and deserved sense of accomplishment.
Educational Pathways Unique to the Region
Our new Associate of Arts pathways in Ecotourism and Entrepreneurship offer degree paths that are rooted in the region. Gilmer County and the adjoining mountain areas are home to a robust and growing tourism industry, and the two new pathways will help you begin, manage, and grow your current or future entrepreneurial ventures. In addition, the Associate of Arts pathways in Ecotourism and Entrepreneurship easily transition to one of Dalton State College’s popular bachelor’s degrees in arts and sciences or business when you are ready.
Student Support Services
Along with the care and support of our professors, we offer a robust set of student services to help you succeed academically, including one-on-one and group tutoring, and even academic and personal counseling. Everything you need to succeed is here.
Small Class Sizes
At some schools it’s easy to fly under the radar. Not at Dalton State. With a small student-to-faculty ratio, you’ll learn from professors who know you, care about you, and measure their success by whether you achieve your goals in the classroom and beyond.
In alignment with our quality academics, we are proud to offer our Mountain Campus students a robust experience in our science lab. This will allow students to gain unique hands-on experience outside of the classroom.
At Dalton State Mountain Campus, students don’t just attend, they engage in their education, invited and guided by professors who are experts at reaching and motivating individual students to take an active role in their educational journey. Students will enjoy the family-like atmosphere with campus events such as our annual Week of Welcome as well as various other extracurricular events throughout the year.
