With a self-contained campus that feels like a small town unto itself, DSU sits on a historic plot of Delaware land that has grown with the times. What began as a 100-acre campus is now a picturesque 400-acre campus abuzz with growth that still takes pride in its older buildings such as Loockerman Hall, a restored national historic landmark from the 1700s. Indeed, DSU is a unique mixture of the past, present and future. One can still unearth time capsules from nearly a century ago below buildings around campus. The Approaching Storm Marching Band belts out some of the latest popular tunes at sold-out football games in Alumni Stadium each fall. And some of the country̠s most skilled researchers are discovering new innovations at DSU that have far-reaching future uses in the fields of medicine, military defense, agriculture and much more.
