It's a horrible school,Everything is falling apart.Quite Bright
It's a horrible school,Everything is falling apart. The town,school, and people are all stuck in the 1960's. the Cafe is horrible,and serve the same thing every week.If some how the school can squeeze a dollar out of you they will. The Fraternity "Houses" are literally falling apart and if Your in a Fraternity prepare to work three times harder than anyone else at the school because the teachers do not like "frat boys". Also they will try and cheat you out of scholarships. They do have small classes but if you miss more than 3 the teachers will start taking 10-30 points off your final grade. Its a very small school, if it wasnt for avation or nursing i dont think it would still be there.

Question
Cafeteria had many optionsBright
Cafeteria had many options and the food was good. The classes are usually 15-30 people. Instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful. A great small town atmosphere and friendly community.

Question
My overall experience at DSU was a pleasantCriminal
My overall experience at DSU was a pleasant one. The instructors and professors were very friendly and helpful. The positives were the small class sizes which gave you more one on one time with your teachers. It had a family type feel to it. Another positive was the price. It was reasonably priced as compared to the larger universities in the state. The campus is safe and you are able to walk to your classes with no problem. The do have frats and sororities and other activies on campus. They have football, baseball and basketball which was also fun to watch. There are teaching and nursing programs at DSU so the female to male ratio was very good.

The only negative I can think of is if you are a young person who wants to party a lot this may not be the school for you. DSU is in a small delta town so the nightlife is lacking. There was one club in town that most students went to and the big party night was Thursday night. On the weekends the campus was mostly vacant. So, if you are wanting a small college, with small classes, individual attention from instructors and a reasonable student loan bill after 4 yeats this is your place. If you want to drink and party like a drunken frat boy this may not be your place.
