The University’s award-winning Experience360 Program gives students the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to real-world experiences individualized to their unique major and goals.

Del Val 2Whether they’re working internships at prestigious organizations, or in the Equine Center learning how to expertly handle horses, students learn by doing and apply their curriculum first-hand in their desired field.

As the episode introduces 10 students from a wide variety of majors and specializations, the show gives viewers an inside-look at DelVal’s beautiful campus, where students get their hands dirty and learn by experience.

Viewers get to see professional facilities on campus like the Equestrian Center Complex, which houses between 40 to 50 riding horses of several breeds and is home to a wide variety of classes and activities.
