The Heart of The Central Valley
The college district encompasses all of San Joaquin County and parts of Amador, Calaveras, Sacramento (Galt), and Solano (Rio Vista) counties. At 2300 square miles, the district today is larger than the entire states of Rhode Island or Delaware. Few college campuses have the luxury of being built at one time. Because it was, Delta has a striking campus...perhaps the most unified in the country. Five four-story instructional centers accommodate classroom needs. Each is distinctive, but all are built around open courtyards with fountains. Completing the campus are two-story buildings housing administration, student centers, a forum building for large classes and assemblies, and a library. The rooflines are reminiscent of the old mining buildings of the nearby Mother Lode areas an important part of the areas heritage. In more recent years, the college added the Child Development Center, a state-of-the-art Center for Microscopy and Allied Sciences (2003), and the Science and Math building (2014).
The seal of the school shows an old paddle wheel riverboat, like the ones that plied the Delta in the early days.... another part of the heritage.
The campus has a park-like feeling, with few old trees from the farm being disturbed in construction. On one classroom center, a plaza area was purposely planned so a huge oak tree could stay...completely surrounded by the building! All parking is on the periphery, and no vehicles come near the center of the campus...exotic tropical fish have the right of way in the signature koi pond.
When the college opened in 1934, just 73 students were enrolled. In 1948 there were 2,000 students. Student enrollment today is over 19,000. The main campus is in Stockton with centers in both Tracy and Manteca In addition to on-campus courses, Delta College offers over 100 courses online through the Internet – with over 10,000 students enrolled in this fast-growing and popular method of instruction.
Once a rural, agricultural community, Stockton has become one of the most diverse cities in the country. The student body reflects that change. In 2002, 60 percent of students enrolled were female, 55 percent of students were non-white, and 43 percent of students enrolled were 25 years of age or older.
