Creating better ways for students to learn is important to us. That's why we created learning communities. You take two or more courses at the same time with the same group of students. Because of the course structure, you have more hands-on and group work that helps you learn. The best part, you get to know your classmates and creating lasting friendships.
Service learning is a big part of what we do at Delta. We incorporate it into many of our classes. Because, we believe how you learn is as impactful as what you learn. We get our students out of the classroom and into the community to learn hands-on while helping the communities we live in. It's a win-win.
Research shows that if you participate at your college in activities outside of the classroom that you're more likely to graduate.
