You've been accepted to DeSales—congratulations! Now what? Here are some guidelines to help bring everything full-circle.

There are so many reasons to love DeSales! Our students share some of their favorites. We can't wait for you to become a part of our big DeSales Family.
00:00:10,150 --> 00:00:13,930
My favorite thing about DeSales is that
the faculty and staff really care about

00:00:13,930 --> 00:00:17,710
your success. There's 40 majors to choose from and I'm so happy to sales helped me

00:00:17,710 --> 00:00:20,470
pick one that I love. There's so many
opportunities to travel, I'm actually

00:00:20,470 --> 00:00:23,320
going to be studying abroad in Europe
this semester. DeSales has so many

00:00:23,320 --> 00:00:26,080
different sports and clubs and
organizations you can get involved in.

00:00:26,080 --> 00:00:30,520
Everyone here is so welcoming. The thing
I love most about DeSales is that I

00:00:30,520 --> 00:00:34,059
have been able to grow in my Catholic
faith and that I am becoming the best

00:00:34,059 --> 00:00:37,540
version of myself. There's so many cool
things to explore around campus and

00:00:37,540 --> 00:00:41,620
honestly just feels like home. And campus
is super close to New York and Philly so

00:00:41,620 --> 00:00:44,589
you can drive to the city whenever you
want with your friends. Everyone's just

00:00:44,589 --> 00:00:47,920
super laid back and really friendly and
you can tell that the whole campus top

00:00:47,920 --> 00:00:51,339
to bottom really cares about you. The
thing I love most about to sales is that

00:00:51,339 --> 00:00:54,760
they let you get involved with a little
bit of everything even if it's not your

00:00:54,760 --> 00:00:58,449
major. Because it's my home and I love
being a Bulldog.

00:00:58,449 --> 00:01:02,050
My professors are willing to help me and I know they want me to succeed.

00:01:02,050 --> 00:01:05,379
I'm a pre-med student and I even had the chance to study abroad in Rome.

00:01:05,379 --> 00:01:08,920
Everybody's so nice here at DeSales that you could go an entire day without
touching a door because everybody's just

00:01:08,920 --> 00:01:12,040
holding the door for you.  My favorite
thing about DeSales is the super

00:01:12,040 --> 00:01:15,010
interactive labs and there's so many
research opportunities.

00:01:15,010 --> 00:01:16,020
Because it's a home away from home.

00:01:16,020 --> 00:01:19,000
Because they offer so many service trips and I got to go to Nicaragua.

00:01:19,000 --> 00:01:22,390
DeSales is great because you
have small classes that allow you to get to know your professors better.

00:01:22,390 --> 00:01:28,720
The thing I love most about DeSales is how beautiful our campus is and you'll
definitely have to check out the sunset.

00:01:28,720 --> 00:01:32,950
Because there's so many fun things to do
in the Lehigh Valley.

00:01:32,950 --> 00:01:35,830
I love DeSales because it gave me the opportunity to explore the world and I got to go to Spain!

00:01:35,830 --> 00:01:38,440
I love it here at DeSales.

00:01:38,440 --> 00:01:39,610
I can't wait to meet you you're gonna love being a bulldog.

00:01:39,610 --> 00:01:46,920
I love it here at DeSales University and I'm sure you're gonna love it here, too. I can't wait for you to be a part of the big DeSales Family
