If you've seen someone for 5 months or so and they are serious about getting engaged while you are still in college, does it mean they are being delusional?

Young and passionate love as I see it. I'd say the wise choice is to wait. You two aren't going anywhere and that ring is not going to bind you two together. If you have a great relationship then keep it going and enjoy each other's company. There's no need to rush into marriage.
Younger people tend to fall in love more easily (and unfortunately also out of love rather easily). The danger of that is that they're falling in love more with a fantasy of you than the real you. You two haven't had enough experiences together for him to adjust and evolve that fantasy to better match who you are as a person.
We all fall in love with a fantasy. I'm in love with a fantasy of my wife, an image and dream of her I built in my mind. Yet my fantasy is fairly close to how she is in person since we've been together for years, have lived together, been through hard times together. I think you two could do with some more time before you start considering marriage.0

Everyone is different, but then again everyone also thinks they're the great exception. It takes an average of 3-5 years to fully get to know someone. I doubt you've seen him angry or distressed or fired from a job. These things change people. 5 months? Shit, you shouldn't even consider it a serious relationship. You're still in the cupcake, honeymoon, whatever you want to call it phase.0
