The people that I have met and the culture surrounding being a part of an HBCU was the best part of this college experience for me. A con that I would say about this school is the financial aid process. This is probably like most schools, but it was really a lot of unnecessary run around just to get an answer to a simple question. Academics wise, there are a good amount of great teachers who care and are very helpful. There is also a small amount who are not the best. Either way, I do appreciate what I was able to get out of attending this HBCU.
I love this school. It is close to home and the sports aspect is very important to me. The campus is beautiful and widely spread out with a lot of things to do on campus. Not to mention the food, it is also great. I hope to come here one day and become a student-athlete like my peers.
Delaware State university is an awesome place to go to school for fellow African American students and other students. The sports and the environment is wonderful for young adults, DSU makes you feel like your home so you’ll never be home sick. As an HBCU school Delaware State is an great place to send your kids.
Personally, the student body is great we really are a family ! The only issue I would have to say is the fact admin ( meaning our university’s president) He ignores the constant out cries of numerous students. I feel he cares more about his political career than the safety, well-being and comfort of his students solely due to the lack of regard to many issues. Also, I have only slept in on campus housing for a day in new student orientation ( NSO ) * I stayed in Jenkins* and never went back lol. But best of luck & welcome New Hornets :)

I have learned countless lessons that I honestly feel that if I did not attend a higher institution of learning would have taken me years to learn and or experience. For instance I learned the true meaning of being independent. Like any other prospective college student this was what i was looking forward to the most being by myself with, no parental guidance and no one to dictate to me what it is I can and cannot do. However what I didn’t realize was that once I step on that campus I am officially on your own and I am now the dictator of my future that’s when it all becomes scary and surprisingly is when you will learn just what it is you want and need to do with your life. See while hear I was force to accept the fact that my parents could no longer hold my hand but, they could only assist from a far. However after about my first semester after all the tears were shed I knew how to do things on my own and I had a keen sense of who I was and destined to be.
nothing i love everything about my school
My classmates are always interesting and fun and make it easy to learn from one another.
I wish i would have known that it would get harder with my financial problems
The social atmosphere. There is always something to do on the week nights and weekends. There are educational programs as well as programs provided for entertainment value.
Delaware State University is a place where students can come to recieve an excellent education while learning about diversity and different cultures.
Delaware State University is best known for its aviation program, and celebrates its successes with that program yearly.
Everyone can attend this school because they have alot of diversity.
The campus is beautiful and we have a family atmosphere. There's also alot of school spirit.
I brag about the school being and HBCU and that it is a prettyfun campus if you get to know people. There doesn't alwys ave to be a party to have fun. I also brag about the Nursing program because I feel this school has a very good one.
The most frustrating thing about my school is sometimes they can be a bit unorganized. Sometimes, there isn't enough staff to assist the students.
Truly, anybody have the opportunity to attend any college of their choice our dream. I want to attend college because I want to help people, by making the future a better place for the next generation. I came to America in 2004 from Haiti. I have worked very hard to get the best education in high school even though I started with a limited English ability. I hope that going to college will challenge me to follow my dreams, because college provides an even higher education. I know that college is the place that will provide a greater level.
All of the classes are relatively small , so I kno my professors and they know me. This is great because they show a genuine interest in you . i think my department , Mass Communicaitons, is under funded , a lot of our equipment is out of date and that becomes annoying.
I think the best and worst thing is that the school has so much history. This is good because you can experience the history. This is bad because there has not been much renovation to the buildings. I feel like the school may be small but it is the perfect size for me. I think the one thing I hate about the school is that admissions and student accounts give you such a hassle around the purge dates, they are never helpful.
Most of the guys at the school smoke weed. The fraternity guys throw the best parties. No one really see's the jock's because they are too busy studying.
People are always doing something , it is a fun campus and that is why people start to fall off. Greek life is very important.
