What Makes us Unique

The campaign to locate Delta State in Cleveland began several years before the doors opened for the first summer session in 1925. In 1928, the first graduating class consisted of thirteen students. A tradition was established that the first degree was to be awarded on the basis of scholarship. Since then, we have created MANY traditions.
