The Office of Admissions recently held a DSU Family Dinner in Oxford for all local students admitted to Delta State for the fall of 2016. Over 30 students and family members attended the event, held at Old Taylor Grocery. Alumnus Josh West ‘05 spoke to the group about his experiences at Delta State. West lives in Tupelo and operates his business, Blue Delta Jeans, out of Oxford.
Current student Vic Rather also shared his Delta State experiences with the group. Derrick Bean, the admissions recruiter for the area, led the program. Each student received an exclusive T-shirt and was entered into a drawing for door prizes.
Similar events sponsored by the Officer of Admissions have been held throughout the state. According to Caitlyn Thompson, director of recruiting, the DSU Family Dinner series was created to support engagement with admitted students.
“Delta State boasts its family-like atmosphere, so to show our family love, we wanted to dine with our future students and give them a taste of the green and white experience,” said Thompson.
