We are excited to welcome our newest Statesmen to our DSU family during our New Student Orientation program. New Student Orientation is a one-day experience designed to help familiarize entering freshmen and transfer students with all things Delta State—from traditions and student life, to academic programs and majors. But perhaps the most exciting part is registering for classes and meeting the faculty, staff and students who will play a vital role in your success.

This summer, we are offering both in-person and virtual options to attend our New Student Orientation program.  New students and transfers can register to attend one of our in-person sessions scheduled for June 8, June 22, June 29 and July 27, or our virtual orientation session available June 15.

New students and transfers who have already completed the early registration process are still encouraged to join us for orientation. Students who have not registered for classes will need to ensure unofficial transcripts are provided to the Office of Admissions at in order for an academic advisor to assist with registration for fall classes. Move-in Day for the Fall 2021 semester will begin on Aug. 15, and classes will start Aug. 17.

Our 2021 Orientation Leaders are excited to welcome you and your family to our campus during New Student Orientation and we look forward to meeting you soon!

Student Testimonials

I toured Delta State University in the fall of my senior year of high school. Right after the visit, my new favorite color was definitely green! I fell in love with the campus. I immediately felt this sense of family—of home. As I reminisce on that day, my mind is blown at what all Delta State has given me. I am now a sophomore majoring in Elementary Education with endorsements in multiple subjects. I am a member of Phi Mu Fraternity, a Delta Diplomat, a member of the Student Alumni Association, as well as a member of several other organizations. This university has opened a plethora of doors for me and has given me opportunity after opportunity to be a part of things much bigger than myself. I have had the privilege of meeting some of the most incredible people, not only students but faculty members as well. The relationships I have formed are incomparable to any others. I’m not just another number here. This is by far one of the best decisions I ever made. This is my home—one of my absolute favorite places. This is Delta State, and I am proud to be a fighting Okra!

Class of 2023

I am a Louisiana native and now proud to be part of the Green and White Nation! As a senior at Delta State University, I will be graduating this coming May 2021. My major is education (special education and physical education).  I am a football player and plan to coach and teach at a local high school. The reason I chose to go into education was because I have a love for passing my gained knowledge to youth and helping others shape their future. I had teachers that devoted themselves to me and taught me the right way to study and how to get the most out of my education. I always wanted to be an educator and never hesitated when choosing my major.

I view myself as a role model because I am an African American male, collegiate athlete, and an honor student. I want to be a positive role model for youth because they so desperately need one. I want to show them that hard work and fun can go hand in hand. I always want to help students achieve their goals that they thought they could not achieve. I want to bring the best out of each student and help them realize his/her true potential in the classroom.
