    I thought I was going to be bored and not having any fun, but was I so wrong about that. Dillard has some of the best on campus parties and activities for students, the school wants it to feel like home a little bit.

    Many people say Dillard is boring. Well, my freshman year at Dillard was not boring at all. I joined the California Club (Chaplain), Vision Quest Mime Ministry, and was apart of the DU Diamonds(official dance team of Dillard.) If you sit around in your dorm all day of course its going to be boring. Being involved helped me to enjoy my Dillard experience.

    I thoroughly enjoy being here!! Dillard University has this atmosphere about the campus that just causes you to open up, loosen up and have an all-round better day. The students, faculty members , and professors do their best to make you feel more comfortable here , they do all that they can to help you and more. Dillard University is a small close-knit campus and we all here a family and connected in one way or the other. I have made more genuine friends here than i know i would have any where else. I LOVE IT SO MUCH HERE!! and I couldn't have made a better choice.
