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.
Review Your College
I love the friendly faculty on campus. They do an excellent job making you feel like you are at home. The class sizes are nice if you prefer a High School style learning environment. The athletic events are a huge hit if you are a sports fan. So much to do around campus! The only down fall about this school is the food. It has its good and bad days. Overall, a great school!
I absolutely love my school and if I could do it all over I would not change a thing. The faculty that I have had the honor of working with are passionate about what they teach and about teaching it to students. I have had a great number of opportunities and halfway through my degree I already feel confident in what I have learned and about learning more in the future. There is work that they need to do. The facilities really need to be updated, and I have heard some unfavorable storied about professors who are not as passionate, kind, or approachable as mine have been. While I have met and worked with a great many hard-working and dedicated students, there is a noticeable amount of those that choose to live by the saying "D's get degrees" and only aim for just enough to get through, without much care for learning.
