"I have been at Daymar for almost two years now. The staff, administrators, and instructors have shown me that I can do it and that they are behind me 100%. I regret that I waited 10 years to go to college, but I am happy I am a student at Daymar College.
The staff and teachers are great because they are always available when you need it or if you need someone to talk to. They are there for you in your time of need. There were times I just wanted to give up and quit because I was not reaching my potential, but the staff and teachers were there to help me as much as they could and never turned me away.
… Daymar College is a great school and I have recommended various people looking for a college to go to Daymar. Daymar College will always be in my heart along with the staff, teachers, and my fellow students."
"With the amazing help of my teachers I passed all my classes and had a HUGE support system.
… I have had so many amazing people at school who have given me so much support. The teachers, the administrative staff, the students we have all become a second family. We encourage each other when things get bad and we are ready to give up.
… We have begun as strangers and somewhere between the beginning and now we have become family. Staff and students alike have made a bond with each other on different levels.
It’s staff like this that makes it to where we actually WANT to be at school. It’s the staff that makes the environment more welcoming. I never in my life liked school and even with the tragedy, the depression, the sadness, and the heartache of my daily life I often can’t wait to get to school. I can’t wait because everyone from the teachers, the secretaries, financial advisors, the administrative staff all have such welcoming personalities and create the most enjoyable atmosphere for everyone.
