Delgado Community College is an excellent school for anyone to attend. They have countless programs of study and very engaging professors. My experience at Delgado has been great so far and I only see it getting better as I finish out my degree program. The over all atmosphere of the school is inviting and joyful. There is always some kind of activity going on to get students involved. There are also clubs and student affiliations associated with every program of study, to help students network and make connections with real world businesses in their field. Delgado is, over all a wonderful community college and I'd recommend it anyone looking for a place of learning.

Delgado is a very good school... Its super easy to get admitted, great teachers who really care about the students. They academic courses needed in this country and the credits from them are extremely transferable to other colleges. Their well recognized worldwide and great reputation especially for the Nursing program because they have a lot of hands on experience in their clinical groups. The government is wonderful in regards federal loans to students and different programs to seek . If your looking for a school that has all the best tools available , come to Delgado !
For the nursing program lectures are inconsistent with the (very expensive) textbooks that are given. The tests are inconsistent with the lectures and the textbooks in Level 3. There's about a 50% chance of moving on from one level to the next depending on how you study, but don't expect your study habits that worked in one level to work in the next level because testing is also inconsistent across levels. It's difficult to study and it takes many many hours before you even begin to understand the material.

Some professors are very nice and will help outside of class as much as they can, going so far as to stay past their office hours to give students a leg up. It does very little good in the long run, though, and students just have to muddle through every semester until they figure out how to study for the tests in that level.
