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.
Review Delta State University
I really love Delta State University as Cleveland is a really nice and beautiful town with great people. There is a lot of diversity in this school and everyone is really nice and the professors are great. They teach well and try to know you personally too which is really nice. One of my concerns is the student life. Most times, it gets boring and there are not really much activities during the spring semester. The fall semester is busy because of its football season but there are not a lot of things to do in Cleveland so it will be nice if we had things to do on campus. Also, the cafeteria food is not good. Sometimes it tastes good and they have a variety but other times its really not good. Dinner is always never enough and food starts to finish long before the closing time. This makes the students have to rely on the food court in the union until they run out of flex.
I am on the softball team and our fan support is awesome! Students and the community support all of our sports and the community is so good to all athletes. All of our facilities are very modern and safe. As an athlete, I am accountable to the Athletic Department and the University as a whole for my actions on and off the field. It is stressed that I am a representative of the university and this makes me proud to be a part of such a quality organization.
