Happy New Year

President LaForge can’t wait for 2019 to begin here at Delta State—because the new year promises to be an exciting one on campus. Here are just some of the many highlights that will take place in the spring semester.

Our 6th annual Winning the Race conference is scheduled for March 25 and 26. The theme for this year’s conference is “Millennials in Motion: Channeling the Winner Within.”

The Bologna Performing Arts Center’s wide-ranging lineup includes the iconic rock band The Beach Boys on Jan. 24; Kinky Boots the musical on Feb. 5; The Wizard of Oz, another musical, on Feb. 26; Ronald K. Brown’s Evidence dance troupe on March 21; and country singer Trace Adkins on April 4.

Delta State’s Office of Admissions will host several events for prospective first-year and transfer students.

  • The third annual Statesmen Scholarship Day occurs in January. Students are selected to attend based on ACT scores, high school GPA, academic leadership, and service demonstration.
  • To introduce prospective students to DSU, each college and/or school will be showcased during an Academic Day. Admitted students will be invited to take part in an academic preview of their specified department, speak with professors, meet future classmates, participate in hands-on activities, and eat lunch on campus.
  • The 6th annual “Go Green Weekend and Spring Preview Day” is scheduled for April. Participants tour campus, preview academic programs, engage with current students, attend sporting events, and more.

If you are a prospective student or parent of one, just call. We will set up a tailor-made tour for you.

We invite you to join us on campus for all of our spring events, and we look forward to another great semester for the Green and White Nation!
