Funding your college education, and emerging from the college experience fully prepared for the 21st century STEM workplace, is, by far, one of the most difficult challenges you will face. There are many decisions to make that will potentially impact your future, in a very short amount of time.

You already know that getting good grades is important, but what else does it take to be "competitive" in the current economic climate? What more should you be doing to better position yourself to further your education? What should you be doing to develop professionally, in your field? What scholarships, awards and internships should you actively pursue?
At Delaware State University, your advisor, along with the faculty and staff of the CMNST, are part of a TEAM that is ready and willing to advise and help guide you in what the best possible path is for YOU.
