Delta State University Reviews
Delta State University is one of the most affordable colleges in the entire country. With the PTK scholarship, your full tuition is paid. That along with FASFA (Pell Grant) you really only need one loan. Our student body is small less than 3000 but very diverse as there is an exceptional number of foreign exchange students. It's a fun and fascinating experience to meet people from other countries and cultures! Small campus is easy to navigate and they recently repaved all the roads.
Delta State's student body is very diverse, which gives a great opportunity to meet new people from other countries and cultures! There is always something to do on campus, also many organizations to join. Although it is a small campus, everyone is friendly and we are all a family!
The college is a good school; the location is not the best. Truly you have to experience it to know if it is for you, the teaching school is amazing! The professors do an excellent job of helping students become wonderful teachers!
