Bang for the buck
Attending Delaware State University is a smart movie for students living in the Delaware area because of cost of tuition and room and board.

They are not the most organized school but no matter what I take pride in my school. I think every student there will have something they don't like (but that's any where). Overall it's a great school not too big, not to small.
Tips for prospective students
If you will be attenting DSU come in with a positive attitude and open minded. Do not come into the school with what someone else told you because that will effect your outlook and potentially affect your four years there in a negative way (make it your own experience). Last but not least have fun enjoy your time there stay on top of your academics and learn to balance both.
Academic Rigor
It all depends on who you have. I can only speak for myself. I think the classes where okay, not the greatest.
Dorm Life
Again, it depends where you live. If it's traditional housing and your sharing everything with a hall full of people things can get loud and messy, but it's all apart of the experience.
Food and Dining
The food not so great. You will likely order out a lot.
What to do for fun
There are a lot of parties on and off campus. Make NEW friends around campus and hang out together, go to the mall across the street, get dressed up and go out to eat. You have to make your own fun, nothing will be handed to you. They hold lots of events on campus go to them!
Bang for the buck
Some people complain about the school but I love my school and I will forever be a HORNET! Whenever someone ask where should they further there education I always say DELAWARE STATE UNIVERSITY the best HBCU....VISIST THE CAMPUS AND YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE!

We have the best Greek life. At DSU we have the Divine 9, which means we have every sorority and fraternity.
Clubs and Activities
We have so many clubs you won't know what to chose from. We have dance, modle(2), men groups,women groups, latino grouos,ect.
Campus Safety
We have legit cops on campus so if you doing something illegal don't caught or your in some real trouble.

I loved my first year at DSU. The school is family friendly and fun. Campus life is amazing!
Tips for prospective students
When coming to DSU, come in prepared to learn. It is important to stay focused or your grades will drop. Just remember to work hard and play later!
Academic Rigor
Fall semester I earned a 3.53 GPA and Spring Semester a 3.8. The academics at DSU can be difficult if you are not focused. If you stay on top of your school work you will do fine.
Dorm Life
Dorm life can be ok depending on where you dorm and who you live with and around. Of course some dorms are cleaner and noiser than others. Dorm life was not the greatest, but it was not horrible either.
Food and Dining
I loved the food at DSU at first. Eventually I got tired of eating the same foods so I had to change it up a little. Sometimes I ate campus food and other times I went food shopping. As far as the dining areas, I would give DSU a perfect 10!
What to do for fun
There are many things to do at DSU for fun! We have an amazing gym where you can work out, play sports, or even take dance classes. You can get involved in extra activities, go to the game room, party, or simply just hang out with some friends to have a good time.
Bang for the buck
Overall, I think that Delaware State University is a great school! It is not perfect, but nothing in this world is. DSU is an amazing place filled with thousands of success stories!

Some times the Greeks have little events on the plots. The plots is one of the special locations on campus.
Great for these types of students
In my opinion, DSU is a school that is good for students who want to have a good time, but understands that their education comes first.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs and activities at DSU. There is a club for every major, dance clubs, and many other sports and student government clubs.
Greek Life
The Greek life is cool too. I am not a part of the Greek life, but I do know that they make campus life fun as well. They have shows and parties all of the time.
Campus Safety
Campus police are always around when you need them!

Am learning a lot
Learning is a fundamental thing at this school. Don't take your education for granted becuase the classroom size is small enough for you to ask as many questions when there is something not understood.
Am enjoying being here
I have alot of fun outside of classes. Going to various social events allows you to have fun while learning at the same time.
Tips for prospective students
Delaware State is a nice school. Expect to come here and learn alot and also get alot of one on one time with professors when needed. The school also offers tutoring sessions if you need extra help. There are alot of campus organizations and activities, which many of the students enjoy. The campus is right across the street from a mall, which has every possible store you may need to shop at from school supplies to groceries.

delaware state university is a credible hbcu. through the orientations, campus visits, and interest meetings, you can learn a lot about the university. our goal is making our mark on the world.
Tips for prospective students
if you are planning to attend delaware state university it is suggested to become familiar with the school and campus itself. think about what you're interested in and what you plan to major in, to predict how you can make your own mark on the world. it is also very important to stay on top on financial aid, and your personal understanding of paying for college.
Academic Rigor
this university has approximately a 12:1 faculty to student ratio. if you find your courses challenging, there are many resources to help you on campus, you just have to be willing to access and use them. some say college work is less rigorous than work assigned in high school, you just have to learn to manage time, social skills, and your priorities.
Dorm Life
there are coed, male, and female residents halls on delaware state's campus. depending on your choice upon enrollment is where you may. each hall is set up with two to a room (3 in some circumstances) and divided into wings. the residential halls are fairly similar, and you become eligible based on your credit hours. living in the dorms is a great way to meet new friends and learn to live outside of what you're used to back home.
Food and Dining
there are three main locations to get food on campus. one is the village cafe', which is located on the west side of the campus and is similar to a buffet. another is conrad, that is a building on campus which holds three different selections to choose to eat. here you are severed checkers restaurant, meat or veggie wraps, and even home-style chicken and potato wedges. the third location on campus to eat is the austin grill located in our student center which serves everything from cheeseburgers to burritos. most purchases can be made based upon your meal plans. and if you crave something else, the school is surrounded with eateries and restaurants that should satisfy your hunger.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
almost every thursday evening the campus sga hosts what is titled the 1200 lounge to give students a chance to relax, listen to music, play games, and participate in events to have fun! this event often helps take a load off of students shoulders, interact with peers and be introduced to upcoming events on campus.
Clubs and Activities
this campus contains clubs for people interested in arts to computers. each bulletin board you walk pass contains information that helps students be involved and know what is going on. if you feel as though nothing suits you, you can always begin your own club or start and activity!
Campus Safety
delaware state has their own public safety who are the campus police. they are here to protect every student and all faculty to make sure our environment is safe. if any incident was to occur, they would immediately contact the campus so everyone is aware. if a student has a problem or needs medical assisting, public safety will be contacted first.

Will learn a lot
Because I have attended the new student orientation, I can see that the staff and campus are well organized and caters to the needs of the students. The equipments and students facilities shows that the staff take their students opinions about their campus serious, due to the fact that they added a new gym, and cafe. I'm really excited to attend Delaware State.
Will enjoy being here
I will definitely enjoy being at Delaware State because it is a nice location near the Dover Mall, a Boys and Girls club is on campus, and the campus is closed and gated off to the rest of the community; therefore, it gives the students a sense of safety.
Bang for the buck
Delaware State University definitely gives their students the bang for the buck, because of the neat location, clean and comfortable campus, and plenty of activities to due on campus with its new and renovated cafe, gym (indoor, and outdoor), and pools.
Tips for prospective students
Some tips that I would give for prospective students would be to visit the campus to be sure the location is something that will best fit your needs as a student. I would also recommend visiting to speak with professors and current students to see what the class sizes are like, and what currents student like about their school. This could in many ways be a the make or break of a prospective students final decision when deciding on a college.
Great for these types of students
Delaware State University is a school that is great for students that look a for college that is small enough so that the students will be known as his or her name, and not a number. DSU has small classes which gives students the ability to know his or her professor not only in the class room but personally. In many large universities getting and staying in touch with teachers can be difficult; therefore, if you are looking for small class and campus DSU is good for you!

Am learning a lot
I definitely am learning a lot here I transferred from Long island University in Brooklyn NY, and I never had the opportunity to learn such variety of things. For example about black history, the most I knew about Black History was what they could squeeze in during Black History month but here I have the opportunity to get in touch with my past as well as others on this campus.
Am enjoying being here
I love being here it's not to far from home, and I just Love learning in General, Dover mall is right across the street and my cousin goes to Wesley college about 5 minutes away met Great fellow students, as well as professors and administration.
Bang for the buck
It definitely is worth coming here as well It is a bit expensive but it definitely is worth it. coming from Long Island University and comparing the prices I would recommend whomever too come here.
Tips for prospective students
For prospective students I would recommend coming here Just know who you are and what you come here to do and you will be fine.
Great for these types of students
I feel that's Its great for everyone. People mistaken HBCUs as all black colleges when all it is, is Historically Black. at the end of the day we are all here for the same reasons and that's to enhance our education, so if you play sports, love music, art, mass communications, nursing, social work, criminal justice and so many other things I would recommend you to come to Delaware State University

My schedule is intense but the professors are great.
Am enjoying being here
Small campus but has the family feel.
Bang for the buck
It all balances out.
Tips for prospective students
You must realize that college is NOT high school. Time management is the key to success. The freedom you will have is going to make you feel great but understand that with freedom comes responsibility.
Great for these types of students
If you don't want a large campus, this is the college for you; close to Washington, DC; Shopping mall across the street
