Reason # 9 It’s more convenient We have 3 locations to serve you Dyersburg, Gibson Co. Center & Tipton Co. Center in Covington. This translates into even more savings in regards to travel and living expenses! $
Reason # 8 Smaller IS Better Put off for two years the daunting prospect of being a little fish suddenly thrust into a BIG POND! UT Knoxville (1 in 30,000) UT Martin (1 in 6,000) …Use our small, DSCC pond to discover where it is your heading before swimming off into the BIG LEAGUES
Reason # 7 Though we’re small, we’re better! In an independent 2000 Yahoo “Most Wired” national survey of 2 year colleges measuring modern technology accessibility in the classroom, DSCC ranked 40 th in the nation, and number ONE in Tennessee!!!!

Reason # 3 No Hazing! …rites of passage, mandatory binging or other heathenistic initiation tortures you might have to endure if you attend one of those other schools with those silly fraternity and sorority clubs (except we DO have PTK Honor Society for our high-achieving students….and athletics, and theatre, and music, etc., etc.
Reason # 2 You don’t have to be a DSCC graduate to belong to the DSCC Alumni Society, Just have completed 24 hours of coursework while a student here. But while you’re here, why not pick up an Associates degree before transferring or entering the workforce?
