The on-campus tour gave me a behind-the-scenes look at the DSU campus and student life. Being from out of state, I wanted to feel comfortable with my college decision, and I instantly felt at home here.Robbie EvansClass of 2024
Being able to have the opportunity to come on a visit here allowed me to experience the campus culture and get a feel for how special Delta State is. It made me fall in love with the school and the environment right away!Tucker SchroerClass of 2023
As a person who travels five hours away from her parents to attend Delta State, I can say that both the virtual and on campus tour were what made the decision for me and my parents. Being a child of Caribbean parents, they needed to ensure that I would further my education in a safe and productive environment, and all it took was one sunny November day on this campus for my parents to feel comfortable with me attending the beautiful university and for me to feel at home!Daina ProutClass of 2024
