It is a traditional Black College. If I could do it over, I would choose my school again for my growth.

I am just an incoming Freshmen. I have been on a college tour and orientation. I met some of my Professors and I was very excited about attending Delaware State University. They me if I had the passion to work hard I will do fine.
