Delgado Community College- Recent Activity

TODAY! At Delgado's fine campus in city park, from 6 – 8 p.m., a free Final Cut Pro X demonstration will be taught in the DMEC computer lab.
With schools located throughout Louisiana, the 90 year old Delgado Community College is a shining example of the potential and impact a community college can have on a student’s life. Its student body is increasing rapidly as students realize the importance this two year educational institution can make.
The college offers a tour of the city of New Orleans, which provides information about the rich and deep history of the city. The tour guides must be licensed which is not mandated by every tour. Seven years ago the school established a Quality Enhancement Plan to improve the performance of their students. Seven years later, the QEP is working well and enhancing the lives and education of Louisiana.
For this upcoming fall semester 2012, the University of New Orleans has helped relieve the over populated Delgado of their crowding by setting aside five classrooms on their location.
Delgado, unlike other schools, has a chancellor instead of a president. A new chancellor was recently named and met with the schools' students.
In news regarding professors, Mrs. Susan Hague received the Fulbright grant to teach in a foreign country. She will be leaving her job as a speech professor to educate children in India.
Another professor making an impact on the local community is Fine Arts and Music Philosopher and Professor is Mr. Peter Cho, who was interviewed on his stance on music and racial harmony especially through jazz. Mr. Cho focused and added to the life and legend of jazz musician Luis Armstrong.
Delgado graduates can expect a joyful career. Alumni have made impacts on local and surrounding communities and have gone so far as to make the states' board of governors.
According to our research, Delgado's top three most popular degrees are in Business Administration, Liberal Arts, and Nursing.
In response to rapid expansion, Delgado is also adding to their curriculum including one of their newer programs: Service Learning. Service Learning gives back to the community while at the same time students earn a grade and college credit. It is this abstract and creative approach to learning that makes their students so successful. The school has also added a Digital Media Education Center or, DMEC, which teaches students of all abilities ranging from beginner to expert.
The schools baseball field, Kirsch-Rooney Stadium, is 55 years old and isn't named after the Delgado Dolphins. Instead it was dedicated to Cyril Kirsch and Robert Rooney, residents of the surrounding Lakeview Louisiana area. Another interesting aspect of Delgado, is their kindness and help for the disabled which is seen in their rehabilitation center which has been helping the handicapped for decades.

  2. This makes me wish I went there instead of the college I went to. I always heard nice things about Delgado, but did not know half of this. This is one of the rare schools that seems to be more about their students and the quality of the education they are paying for.
