“Our mission as the Graduate Student Association this year is to “Bridge the Gap” between our undergraduate, graduate, and alumni students. Our Hornet community has witnessed students succeed beyond measure and begin to make their mark on the world. After gaining this success, we should ask ourselves “How can I uplift my fellow community up with me?” This year we will strive to listen to our students concerns and build sustainable programs and resources for them to continue their higher education at Delaware State University. In today’s world a main part of higher education is networking. We must come together from past classes to the future classes and help each other succeed in all endeavors we may face.
