My favorite college moment was learning that I was going to be an RA in the residence halls. I knew that I was connected with my university. One of many reasons to come to Dillard University is the ways you connect with the community-through classes, residence halls, organizations, sports and many others. You will forever be part of the vibrant New Orleans community and the Dillard family.

Working in the Admissions Office with incoming students is the best part of my Dillard Experience. It is a pleasure to guide and help prospective students through the admissions process. When I speak with a prospective student and they say thank you very much, you have made my day, it doesn’t get much better than that. From admission to graduation, that is my most rewarding Dillard experience.

Why  choose Dillard? The Family atmosphere at Dillard University makes it a perfect place for anyone who is a serious student. Because of the small class size the professors and staff really get to know you and care about you and your future. You will make lifelong friends in a city that has the most interesting culture and traditions. Dillard University , a small Liberal Arts HBCU with excellent academic programs gives you great  opportunities for a brighter future and can be the right fit for you if success is in your DNA.

 My favorite DU experience is building relationships with students. I get to watch them go through the process of being accepted to graduating! It is very rewarding to watch someone successfully start and complete a dream of theirs. I know that Dillard University's small and family oriented campus contributed to these experiences. 

A student should choose Dillard University because
it provides students with individualized attention due to its small class sizes. Professors and staff know you by your first name and genuinely care about you and your success.

My favorite college moment was meeting my life long friends on the c-block in Camphor Hall. We were all from different cities and to this day we are still very close friends.

I have so many favorite moments from my experience as a Dillard student, that it's almost impossible to choose just one. However meeting friends and professors that taught me the meaning of accountability for my own success is an experience that has proven to be invaluable. 

You should choose Dillard because there is no place in the world like it! Excellent academic programs, a campus experience customized by the students and great opportunities for internships, graduate programs and employment post graduation are just a few things that you should consider.

I believe students should attend Dillard University because it educates the whole student. It’s the type of family oriented University that allows the student to grow and become the man or woman they aspire to be. Dillard allows each student the opportunity to gain experience in their respective field to where by the time they graduate they will not only have a prestigious Dillard degree but they will have the job experience that will aid them to the next step in the workforce.
