We do not recommend Defiance College to prospective students and parents. This college is an expensive, private college that has increased tuition by $6,000 for 2023. The administration is not responsive at all to parents or students. When issues arise, the president and vice president ignore the issues. Their main goal seems to be avoiding lawsuits. Our student had a positive experience with the Director of Residence Life and the Residence Assistants. The professors were very good and overall we thought the academics were good. However, we did notice classes are canceled often. Our student had 20 classes canceled in one semester alone. The residence halls are okay but fairly old. The two main dorms at least allow you to bring your own window A/C unit. Finally, the food was terrible. The dining hall and The Hive had several county Health Department violations when we checked. The dining hall should offer more fresh fruit options instead of canned fruit.
