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.
Review Your College
Delta State University is a place where anybody can become somebody. I've had family members who have attended and during their stay, I did a lot of reacting with them on and off the campus. From the games to a few parties, Delta State University was a great experience. I got the honor to attend Delta State University my senior year of high school for students who excel in certain subjects. During that time, I really enjoyed the different teaching techniques. I found that high school teaching level is almost elementary level to college teaching. That gave me a heads up then on what I need to expect going into a university for the first time.
Living in the dorms definitely helps on those mornings when you are running late and trying to get to class on time. Its only a short walk away. However, depending on the dorms, the atmosphere is not the best. Whereas you could live in foundation and have a wonderful atmosphere with clean hallways and a hotel like atmosphere, you could of easily lived in Brumby but had a suite style room. Its all in what you prefer. Cheaper is better for some people while quality is better for others. It helps you stay involved with multiple campus events. The Resident Assistants are very helpful to enforce the rules of the University and visitation to a more ordered system.
