Your ultimate goal for attending college is to earn the degree and experience necessary to allow you to pursue a career in the field of your choice. That’s where the Center for Student Professional Development comes in. The Center helps you decide on your path in life and guides you to utilize the skills you’ve learned over the past few years to figure out what your next steps will be.

Henry Schmieder Arboretum of Delaware Valley University
The Henry Schmieder Arboretum of Delaware Valley University encompasses 40 acres of the main campus. The magnificent gardens existed when the institution was founded in 1896 and reflect DelVal’s mission by providing a living collection of plants. The arboretum also embodies the faculty’s teaching requirements and serves as a green resource for the community and an open-air classroom for many classes. 

Currently, the arboretum is under a transformation as it evolves into The Learning Gardens, where it will be dedicated to education and learning.
