students at Delaware



day at Delaware!

Libby Johnson and David Powers, Associate of Arts majors, spend a little time outside before their class begins at the Delaware Campus on the first day of Autumn Quarter yesterday. Campus personnel report that everything went very well on the first day!

See more pictures from the first day at the Delaware Campus.

Join the Student Conduct Committee
Would you like to protect the integrity of our campus community and help struggling students succeed? Any interested staff members, faculty, or administrators are invited to join the Student Conduct Committee and participate on a panel with Student Ambassadors to hear allegations of violations of the Student Code of Conduct. 

The time commitment is minimal, but the reward in contributing to campus safety and student achievement is substantial. Please contact Kellie Brennan, Student Conduct Program Coordinator, at or ext. 2117 for more information. You can review our new Student Code of Conduct here.

Employee parking reminder
parking lotIf you arrive on campus and are unable to find a parking space in an employee lot, please look for parking in more remote lots, including the Ft. Hayes High School lot, which is available this quarter to students and employees. A link to all parking lots can be found here. Employees may park in both employee and student lots. 

Please be advised that parking outside of marked spaces may result in your car being ticketed and possibly towed. Vehicles that block fire lanes or emergency access to campus could be towed. Also, unauthorized parking in a handicap zone may result in a $250-$500 fine, as per state law. Parking is expected to be difficult for the first weeks of the quarter, so take extra time to get to campus and find a legal spot to park.
