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 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.
Delta State University has been quite the memorable experience for me. I got to meet people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures and communicating with them has helped me grow in my communication skills. The work has been challenging, but the opportunities and results have been rewarding. I was able to graduate the year I planned with very little delays. Things don't go as you planned, but there are many people and opportunities to help you get where you need to go and your goals will stay set if you take the time to communicate with people.
