Dontgotodelstate - 1/29/2020
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2020
"DO NOT GO HERE! The school does not care about the students and is very money hungry! First the office of financial aid is terrible, unorganized, And the workers are very lazy! Stay clear of Evelyn Wise and Ted Noble. At financial aid you have to go up in person multiple times in order to make sure that they actually process your financial aid and did their job with your paperwork. if not it won’t get done, they won’t press the button to submit it and you’ll just be stuck with a large balance. They’re always changing the cost of your tuition and if you want to be taken seriously you have to go to school with a parent for them to act like they care.Student accounts is even worse those workers there are the same as financial aid except they are liars and disrespectful. The DIRECTOR of student accounts Tasha Williams cares more about her phone then her job she refuses to give out business cards and she lies when she gets caught up. You have to wait for long periods of time to get seen and when you do get seen they send you back-and-forth to different departments giving you the run around, you’ll never get a straightforward answer. They waist your time until you're fed up so you can leave. The campus itself is pretty bad too. There’s no actual Wi-Fi And all the assignments are mostly based online. Theres a roach problem The food in Conrad Café is disgusting, The water in the dorms is sometimes green or brown and unsafe to use, janitors there barely clean and if you have any issues that need maintenance they take days to come. Dont bother calling DSU on the phone because they do not pick up! All they care about is your money the athletes and people with scholarships if you’re not in that category do not go to this school. Its not your best option and there’s definitely better HBCUs out there if that’s what you’re looking for. Any bad sign you see the first time you arrive there is just a peek into what you’re going to actually experience."

DESU is for You - 6/10/2019
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2021
"DESU is a great school with a cohort Ed.D. model, they have a great faculty with some of the best in the state of Delaware. Additionally, the classes are much more affordable than you would find for other institutions. While this is currently an in-person program, they are making strides in extending the program."

"Delaware State University is wonderful school. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this institution. When I first went to visit the school it felt like family. It was a close knit school community. It literally felt like everyone knew each other, and they were looking out for one another. It was amazing to see and feel this throughout the school atmosphere. I cannot imagine attending another school for undergrad. The school felt like home because it was home. I had the opportunity to meet so many different people. I was also involved in many different aspects of the campus. It is important to become involved in the school community in order to meet people and make connections that will last a lifetime. Delaware State University blessed me with relationships that I will have forever."

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2017
"Great school for students who are looking for a small community and building a bond with others. A lot of things are word of mouth and often will good unheard unless they are asked. Avoid the Admin building on the first few days of school because it will be packed. If you need questions answered the best time to go is during the Sumner."

Degree: Nursing

"Knowledgeable faculty and very supportive staff. Everyone is willing to do everything possible to make sure you do well. Classes were rigorous, giving you confidence that their preparing you for the work force. Although being a historical black university; the university strived to have a diverse student body of different races and ethnicities."

Caitlin Walls - 4/18/2017
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015
"Delaware State University was an experience I could not put a price on. Although the affordability is nice. The experience of attending an HBCU and being able to get a glimpse of what it is like to be a minority was something that I value highly. The quality of the education needs improvement, but it is steadily increasing. The college focused primarily on esthetics which was a little frustrating being that the classrooms needed repairs and the teachers were not always performing to the best of their ability. The department I was in had no heat so the classes routinely had to be canceled. Although this school has some things they could improve on overall I am happy with the education I received and I am proud to say that I graduated from such a wonderful HBCU."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014
"I love the program. I would have been great if it was more interactive. Doing mock crime scene and figuring out who did it or how to processes a scene. Or if there was an option to explore where in the field we actually wanted to go. And then to help focus that with classes."
