3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is greek life and it is cliquey as in any other universities. We do have one big philantrophic event from all greek lifes but also open to anyone else which plays a great role in contributing to the communities and people have cancer specifically. A lot of fund is collected which is used for a good cause.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It can be tough sometimes to manage when you have 2 majors and 1 minor with volunteering, extra-curricular activities and leadership roles. With time management however it is definitely duable.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had any internships yet however I plan to have one soon. It could be hard to find one however there are some great internships for one's major and outside majors too. Just have to work hard to get them, should've taken ccertain higher level courses for some, other requirements should be fulfilled and need to have certain skills to achieve them.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing can be really expensive and hard to find. It takes forever to sign the lease and it's really competitive for places which are close to campus. It can take up to 6 months for you to even get the place sometimes so file it quickly and know you are definitely going to live there if you sign the lease because even that is not an easy process.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It can get pretty hectic to be a bio major and another major with a minor. As University of Delaware is a public Ivy it's a pretty competitive curriculum. Internships are competitive and require hardwork. There are definitely Job opportunities for people who need work study but they are first come first serve based. Other Jobs are also available but they are competitive and first come first sever. One might think since it's Delaware there aren't that many program but that is wrong. There are a lot of Career programs, internship programs, class programs UDEL has with other colleges and Universities. Some are direct and some are not but there are definitely connections. Facilities at University of Delaware are okay!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are some of the most experienced and highly educated. Curriculum is pretty straight-forward and easy to pick up/ drop minors and majors. Registration Process can be really frustrating sometimes though. University Of Delaware has some really great courses and majors however it can be frustrating getting into those courses. Some courses are only reserved for certain majors and some courses are only taught in spring/ fall while some are full (despite having that class belongs to your major) and some courses only have 1 class taught per semester. That could be a problem sometimes as first two year of undergrad years it's not easy to enroll in all the courses you want/ designed your schedule around. Workload is not bad if kept up with and taken seriously. However it depends on the major. ANy science major workload or all 400 level course classes could get pretty hectic. There are special study options and study abroad areas are wonderful. Since University of Delaware was the first University to come up with a study abroad there are so many opportunities. There are study abroad places in mostly every continent. As UDEL has a winter break for 2 months there are opportunities for study abroad all around the year and special opportunities of volunteer abroad for even 7-10 days through various clubs/organizations.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports events are big. First games are huge deal and usually it's hard to find seats in every game. You have to come 1 and half early to find good seats or sit closer to the field. Intramurals are next important and club events are given the least importance as they are just for fun.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Rules (especially no underage drinking, no drug use, Honor codes and parking spot rules) are taken pretty seriously which is a great thing.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is definitely diversity and clubs and organizations related to them. However not a lot of students in them as the college is medium sized student body! But, one good thing is religious beliefs and all cultures are accepted.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There aren't many activities or attractions near by. Few places such as bowling, movie theaters and a mall near 10-15 miinutes. However there are buses that go to NY, Philly, Boston, NC, and other cities for pretty cheap.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of food places right near University of Delaware on Main Street. From various types of Pizzas, to several types of Mexican food places, other variation in Italian food besides Pizza, Chinese, Indian, Thai places, Starbcuks, IHOP, bakeries, Dunkin Donuts, Froyo, Icecream places and few other restaurants, late night places and several others. It is great- convenient and opens up a lot of options.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: So many majors to choose from! UD also has a supportive program for students who haven't decided their majors.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The most important thing is that you try your hardest. UD won't do the work for you, but they sure will help you if you try!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Newark is a small town, but there's usually something to do.

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's been the best year of my life so far!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus and UD!

3 College Senior

Greek Life: You will always see someone in wearing letters on campus, however, you don't have to be a part of Greek life in order to be someone in college, in my opinion.

5 College Senior

Diversity: There are many diverse people on campus and everyone is pretty accepting of everyone, regardless of race, sexual orientation, etc.

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.
