Delta in the later years

EJ, Ernie, Rob, Dan and Eric,  are any of you reading this
list?   I have lots of fond memories of Delta, mostly as 
scattered anecdotes and various lessons I learned.  I 
don't remember too much of a chronology of events.

When did Delta stop supporting schools?  

I worked on Delphi (the career/job/training database
program formerly knowns as Choices/Changes) all
the way up until I graduated from UD in June 84.  At
some point, I had EJ's old office at 133 Willard Hall,
then moved into SOICC's office in Drum Hill Plaza
and moved with them to the Dept of Labor BLS
office at University Plaza.   We were using a VAX 11/780
somewhere.  Was it in the UD Computing Center
the whole time?  I don't remember.  Did we end up
moving the VAX from Project DIRECT?
