Hornet Days

What Are Hornet Days?

Hornet Days are designed to give high school seniors & transfer students the opportunity to see what it’s like to be a student at Delaware State University. You will have a chance to spend the day (in person for DE, DMV, NJ, NY, and PA Freshmen only and virtually for East Coast, Midwest, South and West Coast Freshmen and all Transfer Students) with DSU students visiting classes, touring the campus, meeting faculty and student leaders, seeing the members of our Greek Organizations stroll, and much more.

Most importantly, you will have a chance to meet admissions counselors who will inform you of our admissions procedures, scholarship and financial aid opportunities, and maybe even accept you on the spot if you do the following:
