"Words don't do justice for what it means to me to be a BLUE HAWK. It's a feeling. A feeling of PRIDE. There's a sense of COMMUNITY thatis welcoming and open. It feels like HOME.
It's where I was part of something BIGGER
than myself. I was part of a TEAM."

"Increasing the support of an athletic department, increases the number of kids that can be recruited on a yearly basis.This allows DSU to attract more top tier student-athletes who will improve the level of competition in the sports programs, but also enhances quality of life on campus."
