History

Delaware Tech was founded by Dr. Paul K. Weatherly, who served as president from 1967-1980. The Southern Campus was the first to open in September 1967 with 350 students, and renamed as the Jack F. Owens campus in May 1995. The Northern Campus was the second to open in a temporary location in 1968. The Northern Campus was then replaced by the Stanton Campus in the fall of 1973 and the Wilmington Campus in the spring of 1974. The Terry Campus in Dover was opened in 1972. The Presidents Office is situated adjacent to the Terry Campus. The president also keeps an office on the Wilmington campus.[4]

Their teams are known as the Spirit, and their colors are green and white. In the early 1990s, a golf team was created for a local high-level amateur golfer, Tom Borsello, who had won the state amateur title on multiple occasions, and who was taking adult courses, to compete on the college level.

Delaware Tech's Terry Campus, located in Dover, is home to the fighting Hawks. Various athletic programs are available there, including men & women's soccer programs, lacrosse, and women's softball.
