4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of places to eat and a lot deliver. Can't complain!

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics and sports teams make campus fun but they're not the sole focus. We definitely have school spirit but it pertains to all aspects and talents, not just the athletes.

Diversity: No one cares about your sexual preference here. You are free to be and act however you want. There is a large population of international students. There are also a wide range of religions throughout campus. Most people are accepting.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life here is kind of a big deal and you can't go anywhere without seeing at least five people wearing their letters. However no one will treat you any differently if you join or don't join.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Most of the professors are pretty great and depending on your major, most people's workload is fairly manageable. However there could be more chances to do better in courses and more major, minor, and graduate options.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Local atmosphere is pretty boring.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Not incredibly strict, not incredibly lenient. It's not bad, just okay.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The snow makes delays and occasional cancellations and the rain makes it hard to go to class but when it's nice out walking to class is very much tolerable.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Campus security really cares about cracking down on students doing drugs and underage drinking so at times it can be hard to party.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are many computers with up to date software and top of the line models but only in a certain area of the campus and the wireless network at our school can be poor at times.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nightlife is fun here, as long as youre a girl you can pretty much go anywhere at night.

3 College Freshman

Weather: the weather is very average, completely seasonal, nothing bad to say about it

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: depends on what view you have towards greek life. it definitely has a bigger role at the school than anyone wants to admit.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is all based on luck of the draw. you can either be placed in the worst living conditions or the best, and as a freshman you're paying the same regardless

5 College Freshman

Transportation: For me it's been pretty easy to commute to and from school. Not only is there an amtrak within a 15 minute walk of campus,but there is a megabus that is super cheap that will go to places such as nyc, baltimore, philly, and dc

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus isn't too strict, it's like most other colleges, there are limitations on what you cannot and can do but nothing that will really control how your time is spent

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love the food thats offered on main street. There are plenty of places to order from late at night, like your average munchy food as well as a variety of sit down restaurants

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I dont have much to say for this because ive never lived off campus

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I thought that the school spirit here would revolve more around the sports than they actually do. A lot of the school spirit simply comes from people being proud of being a blue hen. Not many people attend the sporting events, at least not regularly

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Newark DE is a fun college campus with the main street running through it, but that's about all there is. There's no big town or city to go to to do new and interesting things. Newark primarily revolves around the university.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I can't say much about the diversity from personal experience, but the campus isn't diverse enough (in my opinion) to make any generalized statements

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've gone through waves of liking and not liking this school. I haven't made up my mind yet, I think it has a lot to do with the type of person you are and the type of people you're surrounded by.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I don't think it's a very strict environment. Some of the RA's are chill and more lenient, I've heard of a few people getting written up for illegal activities in their rooms where the police have been involved. But overall, pretty lenient.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Main street has a bunch of interesting and yummy places to try, also a trip to the mall is a good place to eat.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I have never had a problem with wifi, and there are a few places you can go to print things if needed, but the printer I like to use has been broken for a couple weeks, so I found it convenient that a few people on my floor brought printers.

By the end of their years here, most students look back and are happy with their choice. They've received a good education and generally met some people with whom they will keep in touch for many years in "real" life. This love of the school comes about gradually for many students. While some students love it automatically and fit in easily with the relatively homogenous campus, others take longer to find their place and truly start to enjoy themselves.

While many students have a slow start here at Delaware, they all report that once they decided to give it a chance, they found their experience rewarding both academically and socially. This University tends to provide a nice balance between a social life and an academic one. There is always plenty of time to hang out and get your work done, so no matter what you are interested in, you have a chance to get it all done. This is the major benefit of attending the University of Delaware.
