WHAT I LIKED

When deciding to choose a University to attend, you have to consider everything that the University has offered. For me, Delaware state being an HBCU on the northeast coast gave me a chance to be close to my community but also not be too far away from my family. On top of it, being a highly accredited university meant the world to me.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The main thing that I don’t like about Delaware state is that financially can be very difficult to understand and work with but I think that comes with college in general.
