Delta State University Reviews
Great! The classes are challenging, but very educational. There have been and continue to be a lot of work being done to the campus. There is something for everyone here; sports, fraternities, sororities, academic clubs, band, cheer, dancing... something for EVERYONE! The campus is well maintained and is always making improvements. I feel like I will definitely leave here knowing what I need to know (and more) when I go to my graduate program.
Delta State University is a public institution providing a comprehensive undergraduate and graduate curriculum to approximately 3,500 students representing all of the states and 50 different countries. Dozens of degree programs on the undergraduate level provide educational opportunities in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Education and in the Robert E. Smith School of Nursing. Graduate programs on the master’s, educational specialist, and doctoral levels provide advanced training in a broad range of disciplines.
I enjoyed my time at Delta State. It is a small, quiet campus. Everyone here is very friendly. Greek life is very diverse and all come together to help make that experience on campus incredibly enjoyable. Majority of the teachers are always willing to help out the student, the best way they can. The community, in which the university is located, has a lot of fine eateries and attraction, and is overall a safe, and welcoming environment. Coming to Delta State was one of the best decisions I ever made, but don’t just take my word for it, come see for yourself.
