Meal plans are based within 7 days with 3 meals offered Monday thru Friday, and 2 meals on Saturday and Sunday - brunch (combination of both breakfast and lunch) and dinner. Flex dollars are added to a student's DSU ID card with each meal plan. Students living in traditional residence halls are required to sign up for a 19-meal plan, 15-meal plan, or 10-meal plan; students living in University Village Apartments must choose at least a 10-meal plan; and students living in University Courtyard Apartments are not required to sign up for a meal plan.   19-Meal Plan A 19-meal plan offers all 3 meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week (Sunday-Saturday). This is the largest meal plan that DSU offers.   15-Meal Plan A 15-meal plan offers 15 meals throughout a 7-day period (Sunday-Saturday), which means a student can eat any combination of breakfast, lunch or dinner which totals up to 15 meals during this period.   10-Meal Plan A 10-meal plan offers 10 meals throughout a 7-day period (Sunday-Saturday), which means a student can eat any combination of breakfast, lunch or dinner which totals up to 10 meals during this period.   Commuter Meal Plan DSU commuters can opt to have a commuter meal plan - which is 5 meals within a 7 day period (Sunday-Saturday). How Flex Dollars Work At the beginning of each semester, every student with a meal plan receives 100 flex dollars. These flex dollars are "loaded" onto a students DSU ID card, and can be used at all dining locations during all regular business hours. When items are purchased at the above locations, the student presents their DSU ID card and the cashier deducts the cost from their flex dollar account.  You may purchase additional flex dollars to be added to a student's account by calling the Cashier's Office at 302.857.6220.

Advisor's Page

Body: 
Welcome Advisors! Dear Student Organization Advisor, The Office of Student Leadership & Activities (OSLA) appreciates your commitment to serve as an advisor to a registered student organization at Delaware State University. The advisor plays an integral role in helping student leaders create an environment within their organizations that is productive, safe, enjoyable, and educational. To adjust to the changing dynamic of higher education, and to advance a proactive risk management strategy at Delaware State University, the OSLA believes it is important to provide clear guidance and support regarding the expected role you will play as a facilitator advisor. The OSLA is committed to ensuring you have all the resources and development opportunities to enrich the lives of the students you advise as well as your own. RESOURCES Student Organization and Advisor Handbook Organization Registration New Student Organization - completed by Advisor and members of all new student organizations Returning Student Organization - completed by Advisor and members of all returning student organizations to update status and organization information Business and Finance Office of Student Leadership and Activity Student Organization Budget Narrative Form This form should be used to provide a projected budget each year for active student organizations. The form should accompany the NEW ORGANIZATION or RETURNING STUDENT ORGANIZATION forms as a guide to determine expected expenditures for the entire academic year. Purchase Requisition This form should be filled out for Petty Cash requests, to pay out vendors, request items to purchase or for goods and services. Background on Guidelines for Solicitation The University also recognizes the importance of raising financial and in-kind support from outside sources to benefit the University, its students, departments, and activities. The Solicitation Agreement form guides the policies and procedures for selling goods or services on campus for the purpose of raising money for student organization programs and activities. Travel Authorization, Per Diem Distribution, and Student Travel Release Form These form should be filled out to request to travel for official school business, (i.e. conferences, events off campus that require transportation, meals and hotel accommodations). Please feel free to contact the OSLA for clarification on what event would require this form osla@desu.edu. STUDENT ORGANIZATION MONTHLY ASSESSMENT REPORT Student organizations at Delaware State University must establish strategic and systematic plans and processes to evaluate the viability of their programs, activities, and events.  Policies and procedures outline the internal and external accountability expectations with regard to student learning and guide how the organization can determine learning outcomes.  The STUDENT ORGANIZATION MONTHLY ASSESSMENT REPORT allows you to highlight how your club or organization is meeting the goals of your learning outcomes.  Please complete the form and submit it to OSLA monthly by the end of the month or during Student Leadership Institute. Questions may be directed to osla@desu.edu or 302-857-6392. STUDENT LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE Whether subtle or overt, behaviors demonstrated by student leaders are instrumental in conveying values, guiding strategy, and inspiring passion and interest in other students. When practiced, the effect is far more powerful than merely putting on a program or party. Actions consistently tell the story not only of who you are, but of the behaviors you value. Student Leadership Institute provides workshops and leadership sessions for students to learn strategies and practices that are honorable and can be easily adopted by all student groups. Students explore methods of leadership development, learn how accountability is needed, and is a core competency to developing them individually and corporately as a leader and a professional. Students learn to make proficient use of campus resources while adhering to safety and risk management policies and procedures with a focus on the well-being of campus and community constituents. Student Leadership Institute sessions complement the goals and objectives of DSU’s five core values, and systematically move students from paraprofessional behaviors to strategic leadership behaviors conducive of producing a preferred future. If you have any questions regarding attendance or general questions about the workshops, please contact the OSLA team at osla@desu.edu or 302-857-6390.
