DCC is the ability…to boldly ask what if, to wonder why not…to be, above all, unabashedly passionate.Zuri Zhao, Epsilon Class, Electrical Engineering Major
When people ask me, “What is DCC?” I often find it difficult to come up with a succinct answer because, at least to me, DCC is just so many things. DCC is the ability to innovate, to think across disciplines, to bridge across ideas, to boldly ask what if, to wonder why not, to be intellectually curious, to try things just for the sake of seeing what might happen, to be a little quirky and a little weird and, above all, unabashedly passionate … and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. These are now facets that have become a part of my own identity, and ones that I will carry on for a lifetime.
DCC is a smorgasbord of multidisciplinary majors.Beena Raghavendran, Beta Class, Journalism and Government & Politics double major
DCC is a smorgasbord of multidisciplinary majors. It works because it integrates each major's strengths to form strong collaborative projects and thinking beyond the realm of just a major or discipline of study. I picked DCC to understand the intersections of technology with journalism, and it has helped me understand the potential of digital impact on the media world. Bringing together such a diversity of majors and backgrounds, DCC becomes a family of support, always helpful and always interested to further our understanding of the digital world.
DCC is a diverse program that fundamentally challenges the modern definition of technology.Bryant O'Brien, Beta Class, Information Systems major
DCC is a diverse program that fundamentally challenges the modern definition of technology. DCC looks to stretch your mental confinements on the uses of technology and social media by introducing foreign projects and assignments with technology. For example, creating grids of surveillance cameras, developing and tweeting with a certain hashtag for educational/classroom purposes. For current and future students, enjoy your time around some of the most creative and imaginative faculty, students, and curriculum on campus. It is very different from the majority of other programs on campus.
I strengthened my Economics major in away that no other program could have done.Lilybelle Davis, Beta Class, Economics Major
Through this program, the curriculum doesn't end as you walk outside the classroom. The talent within DCC's students encourages constant learning and brainstorming. I became so close with my peers in the Beta class because we not only learned together, but we also grew together. DCC really breaks down the barriers associated with tech and allows anyone to learn and develop useful digital skills. In DCC, I challenged myself to work with the CS majors, learn Photoshop and HTML. By doing that, I strengthened my Economics major in away that no other program could have done.
If there is anything you’ve always wanted to do — DO IT. DCC provides the resources and support to make that happen.Alexis Anthony, Beta Class, Public Relations Major
DCC is unlike most other honors programs. We have open-ended projects wherein we can take any idea we have and develop it. Thanks to DCC and some of my classes the past few years, I have developed an interest in multimedia production. I like taking and editing photos, as well as producing short videos and audio clips. I've even gotten into website design and development. For current and potential DCC students, my advice is to be creative. Take a leap. If there is anything you've always wanted to do -- DO IT. DCC provides the resources and support to make that happen.
