About Delta State University
Delta State University, also known as DSU, is a regional public university located in Cleveland, Mississippi, in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. DSU is one of eight publicly funded universities in the state.

Delta State Teachers College was established in 1924 by an act of the Mississippi Legislature, through Senate Bill 236, introduced by Senator William Beauregard Roberts and Senator Arthur Marshall, and signed by Governor Henry L. Whitfield. It first opened its doors to students on June 7, 1925, for a summer session, then began its first fall session on September 15. James Broom was appointed the president of the college, but died only fourteen months after the appointment, being succeeded by William Marion Kethley on July 15, 1926. Soon after, the college built an elementary education laboratory school called the Hill Demonstration School, in which student teachers taught children between the first and sixth grade. The Hill Dem. School functioned until 1957. In 1930, Delta State was granted full membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Over the next few years, the school continued to grow, creating the Delta Singers in 1934, graduating about 50 students per year, and building several facilities with assistance from the Works Progress Administration. In 1935, the Delta Chamber of Commerce (now the Delta Council) was organized, naming Kethley as its president. The college eventually received permission to offer the Bachelor's of Arts and the Bachelor's of Science degrees in 1943.

World War II greatly affected the college. Anticipating the war in 1941, the college created a civilian pilot training program, which evolved into the current Commercial Aviation Department. When the war began, 254 Delta State students joined the armed forces. When the war ended, student enrollment at Delta State increased from 185 to 483.

During the 1947 session of the Delta Council, Dean Acheson (Under-Secretary of State in Truman's administration) delivered a speech on campus that unveiled the Marshall Plan, detailing postwar relief for Europe
