"When I transferred to DBU, I was a little scared to transition from a community college to a university. I did know if I would be ready and how I would react to this transition. However, the faculty and staff at DBU helped me through the whole process. Everyone cared for me when I needed help and mentored me when I had questions. I am now a senior and the last three years have been a dream. I am so thankful for this university and the way the Lord uses it to extend His Kingdom."
“My time at DBU was a wonderful experience. My fear as a transfer student was that I would have a hard time making friends and getting involved on campus, as I had a later start than the traditional college student. The Lord quickly dispelled my fears as people warmly welcomed me and pursued me.”
