In much the same way that passports allow free travel to and from destinations around the world, DSU offers its students a “passport to life.” This passport will enable students to become contributing and productive members of society while gaining the confidence needed to take hold of opportunity, earn respect and build on their success. It all starts here, at DSU. With a self-contained campus that feels like a small town unto itself, DSU sits on a historic plot of Delaware land that has grown with the times. What began as a 100-acre campus is now a picturesque 400-acre campus abuzz with growth that still takes pride in its older buildings such as Loockerman Hall, a restored national historic landmark from the 1700s.
