What our Spring 2012 Graduates had to say ... 


  Extremely pleased with what I have learned in my program. It was organized well_ (you did have to hassle to register_ otherwise the classes filled up_ but I never had a problem with it personally) and I feel that its structure was well thought out by Mr. Walley. It is wrapping up nicely and hopefully it will provide me everything I need to start a successful internship in my career. I was also really pleased with the honors program. I feel that I gained that little extra that was offered to enhance my learning experience for my general education requirements. It's been a pleasure_ Delgado.

I enjoyed my experience at Delgado.

My overall experience at Delgado was great and I have definitely recommended the school to others.

Delgado is awesome!



I am very proud of myself of what I have accomplished and feel very blessed to be receiving 2 degrees on graduation day. I have put forth a major effort and now I can look forward to seeing what I have actually worked really hard for. I have done all this for my three beautiful children. I really cannot wait to get up on stage and just hold onto those degrees. Hopefully the tears won't be pouring out! I am very excited! Only a few more weeks to go! WOW! I would also like to thank all my instructors who have helped me advance to this point where I will eventually be receiving my degrees. It was not easy_ but having the best instructors possible made learning fun and understanding. I could have not asked for better instructors! Thank you to all!

I really enjoyed my experience at Delgado through the good times and the bad I’m glad to have made it thus far to completion.

I really enjoyed going to school here. I found the teachers wonderful and very accommodating.

The Delgado communication teachers Hague_ Dunn_ Louis_ and Richardson are some of the finest teachers. They have been so willing and available to help me in the four years that I have been here. If it hadn't have been for them and my math teacher Mrs. Kaplan_ I doubt I would have made it this far. They really helped me to find myself!

Delgado is a necessity to changing lives in our community. Thank you and I love this school!!


Delgado City Park campus overall has a good learning environment.

I really enjoy my experience at Delgado. The instructors were really helpful and encouraging.

Delgado's staff help me to get back on my feet after being out of school for almost 5 years. Thank you with all of my heart. You all challenged me but you also gave what I needed to achieve one of my goals. I’m going on to Charity where I will continue to achieve. God bless all of you.

I loved my time at Delgado. I had fantastic_ caring instructors who helped me achieve 4.0 gpa status throughout my time here. Mr. Coulon was a great advisor who continually helped steer me toward my goals. I will miss everyone here as I move on in my education. I would love to come back and teach here someday.

I had a bunch of amazing learning experiences at Delgado. I am so happy that I am moving forward!

My overall experience was great. I had some great teachers and some bad. Overall I enjoyed my time here.

I want to thank Delgado faculty and staff for the time spent at the West Bank campus. Thank you instructors for sharing your gift of teaching_ administration for keeping all paper work current_ janitorial staff-- for keeping the campus immaculate_ and learning resource staff-- for assistance in subject matter. Thank you.

Even though Delgado is a community college I feel as though I received the BEST education here. I’m happy overall with the decision I made to attend this college_ and to start of my education here.

Being a student of Delgado Community College has been an exciting experience. Thank you all!

I am very happy with the education and skills I received while attending Delgado.

I feel that DCC has provided me with the skills necessary to succeed as a manager of a business in the future. I have enjoyed my time at Delgado and would definitely tell people to look at it as an option when deciding where to attend.

I really enjoyed being a student at Delgado Community College. All the teachers I had were very helpful to me and made time to see me. I am taking two classes for the summer after that I will continue my education at UNO. I will miss all the faculty and staff at Delgado and I will recommend everyone to attend Delgado for their education.

This has been a good but very challenging experience for me. I am looking forward to graduating and moving forward with my career. Thanks Delgado!!

My entire experience at Delgado was a roller-coaster. I’d like to recognize two teachers who are very dedicated to their job and caring of their students_ Mrs. Yarbrough and Mrs. Green they make this school a better place. Thankful of Dean Puneky.

Delgado was a great experience for me_ I enjoyed the times I've had here making new friends_ and gaining a degree in which I can pursue more into with. I feel like I've accomplished my goals and am ready for the next step in my future!

My overall experience at Delgado has been great_ however a few minor improvements could make this an excellent campus. I have enjoyed studying here. Thanks!!!!

My experience at Delgado was very positive. I had excellent instructors and will highly recommend Delgado in the future.

Delgado was a learning process and a wonderful opportunity for me. It was a challenge because of my 20 years of being out of a learning environment. The only thing that I have to comment on concerning Delgado's encouragement for new enrollment would to tell the new comers to stay on top of their own progress because Delgado can only do so much. They need to know that their success depends on their hard work in all levels from classwork to getting needed documents fill out. This is my opinion and a request for Delgado just to tell and keep reminding the new comers they need to stay on top of their own success even if they need to keep repeating the same process over and over again until it’s satisfied. That's all I really have to comment on but I will say I had a wonderful learning experience at Delgado I was afraid of not completing and dropping out but the instructors I was given for my first semester really put something on my mind and that was that you can do this just put your mind in it.

Delgado is a good school to start your college career at. My experience was good_ I took half of my classes online. Overall_ I am glad I chose Delgado as my starting point for my college career but I will be VERY happy to move on to UNO.

Instructors like Ms. Gonzales ( eco 202) _ Ms. Wood ( Geol101)_ Ms. Gatzke (Acct)_ Ms. Lasky ( Acct)_ Mr. Moe ( Marketing) are knowledgeable and I was able to see their interest in being there and their knowledge. Out of all my instructors during my 2 years at Delgado these are the ones that really are professors. Prepare_ ready_ never lose students work_ you can count with them.

I have had awesome teachers both in class and online. Notably Beth Lasky_ Mel Graziano_ Matthew Estrade_ and Dennis Worsham. These teachers rose above the standard in their commitment to ensuring their students not only knew the material but understood it and had the ability to apply it in their everyday life. These teachers motivated me to work hard_ study hard_ and succeed. Overall I loved my experience at Delgado. If I should decide to seek another degree_ there is a high probability that I will return to Delgado to do so.

I have truly enjoyed my time at Delgado Community College and once it’s done I will truly miss the teachers that I have come to know.


Delgado was a great stepping-stone to my career choice. The amount of activities_ including the job-fairs was very helpful for me_ and very much appreciated.

I've enjoyed my stay here. Just wish that it was a 4yr college.

The Art department is truly a great asset to Delgado and I could not speak more highly of their professionalism and dedication to my education.

I am a Practical Nursing student at the Jefferson technical site. Overall I was very satisfied with the instructors and the resources that were available to me.

Overall_ I had a great experience at Charity!

Overall my experience was great. Possibly continuing my education here at Delgado Community College School of Nursing RN program.

Thank you and goodbye!!!!!!!!

I am proud of my experience and education I have received here at Delgado. The faculty and staff are truly amazing and have impacted my life in a way that have inspired me to continue to set goals and strive to be a better person. I am so grateful to the community of Delgado for its enlightenment_ it makes me want to encourage others to share in the excitement as well. My only wish for Delgado is for it to be a four year institution so that I can get my bachelor's degree then I could extend my stay. Thank you Delgado, for an experience that shall last a lifetime!

I never graduated from high school_ so I have a GED. I never thought I would ever be able to say I walked across a stage for a graduation. I will be able to say that now_ and my family will be able to say it also. Everybody in my family and friends are proud of me. I'm proud of myself and enjoyed learning from my instructors at Delgado and I will continue to attend_ so I could walk that stage again.

It was a long journey to get this degree. I'm excited this journey is coming to an end. I am 40 and will have my degree. Thank you to all my teachers_ they were all very helpful.
