I will only be a freshman this fall but I already know that the next four years of my life attending this school will be the best years of my life! The staff is extremely friendly, and very helpful. The campus is gorgeous, and the buildings are clean. This is definitely my dream campus! The professors are there for the benefit of the students, and are definitely dedicated to their job. I have had nothing but positive interactions with the entire campus, and I cant wait to call myself an Aggie!

DelVal is a great school for anyone interested in agriculture, animals, or the environment. The professors are all extremely experienced and knowledgeable. The campus is beautiful, with our own farm with horses, pigs, sheep, and beef and dairy cattle. There are also two smal animal labs for pre-veterinary practice and learning. DelVal provides the most hands-on experience out of all the other colleges and universities. I visited before choosing my school. I love it there even though the dorms are below average and the food isn't too great. Everything outweighs the few negatives.
Based on the quality of the education and the excellence of the professors here at DelVal, it is the best school for me! I am very happy to be here and many of the professors have really helped me find who I am and what I want from college and life. The hardest part about attending this school is the hefty pricetag that comes with it. That was the only reason I considered transferring out of DelVal to another school. But for me, the culture this campus has and the experience I have and gain from DelVal is definitely worth the price.
