This university has opened a plethora of doors for me and has given me opportunity after opportunity to be a part of things much bigger than myself. I have had the privilege of meeting some of the most incredible people, not only students but faculty members as well. The relationships I have formed are incomparable to any others. I’m not just another number here. This is by far one of the best decisions I ever made. This is my home—one of my absolute favorite places. This is Delta State, and I am proud to be a fighting Okra!Cole HollisClass of 2023
I'm excited to use my education degree in the areas of special education and physical education. During my time at Delta State, I was a football player, which guided my career to education and coaching. The reason I chose to go into education was because I have a love for passing my gained knowledge to youth and helping others shape their future. I had teachers that devoted themselves to me and taught me the right way to study and how to get the most out of my education. I always wanted to be an educator and never hesitated when choosing my major.Dante WilliamsClass of 2021
I am very thankful for the opportunities that Delta State has given me to help me grow as a student, an athlete, and as a person. The staff will do whatever it takes to help you to be successful. There are also many opportunities across campus for students if they are looking to get involved. I have had the privilege to hold leadership positions across campus, including being a part of numerous honor societies, an academic tutor, the SGA Director of International Affairs, and the SGA Vice-President. Delta State has given me the opportunity to grow and have the University grow with me. I would not change my experience at Delta State for anything. Thank you Delta State and as always… GO DSU!Madison (Maddy) LavoieClass of 2022
