Being in Delval is great for any undergrade that want real world experience first with professors that care. The University has a very rigorous Biology program that teach's students the ins and outs of the subject with an emphasis on internships and field experience. The University's growing psychology and Business fields also stresses real world experience, along with the stable farming curriculum that lets future growers get hands-on with livestock and other farming tech. The professors are very accommodating and want to see their students succeed, but still pushs them to do the best they can with challenging projects that require good comprehension and execution of the lessons learned in class. Delval is a University for doers, the people that shall shape the world for the better.

I recently transferred from Rutgers to Delaware Valley and I can honestly say it was the best decision of my life. Everyone is genuinely kind and friendly, professors are willing to help and are eager to teach, and students enjoy the smaller class setting compared to larger schools. Everyone at DelVal is willing to help you move in the right direction for your career. I only wish I came here sooner!
Great teachers that really care about your future. Small intimate campus. Farm life makes things fun and interesting. BUT kind of boring, and PARKING SUCKS. Very good school for animal and plant sciences or sports/ business / criminal justice. Art and med student prospects should look elsewhere!
