4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Big lectures are impersonal but effective. Smaller major courses are personal. The classes are rigorous but rewarding.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being a big school, sometimes it feels easy to get lost in the shuffle.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt endangered or threatened on campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Study lounges in every building are very useful for students.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: You are either 100% against it or for it- no in-between.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Students are not really that into sporting events.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Academically, I have been challenged and have many opportunities open to me.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes are modern, and my teachers have been great. Very willing to help

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Had a good amount of space within the dorms. Will be as social as you make it

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Big influence on campus, but dont have to be in one.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Very nice facilities, and good teams

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, but the surrounding area is not the safest. I really enjoy running at night on campus and I have to be extra precautions of my surroundings. There are several UD alerts, but every school has those.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Every semester there is a career fair and a graduate fair where several different organizations set up tables to speak with. I also really enjoy going to career services to discuss future plans. They are always there to listen and give advice.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I was lucky enough to be randomly placed in the transfer dorm. This was a wonderful community for anyone in a transition stage. The RA's were very helpful also. The year after I lived on upper campus in the very nice dorms in a double with a shared bathroom. I decided to live off campus my senior year.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: UD has a 100% no hazing policy and this is a huge reason why I decided to rush for a sorority. I ended up joining a sorority only two weeks after I transferred. The greek life is a caring and welcoming community. Although one aspect is the parties I really enjoy the philanthropic part of greek life. Some people are judgmental about greek life because of what they hear in the media about it, but much of it is not realistic. Everyone no matter the "ranking" is proud to wear their letters around campus!

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I loved the overwhelming amount of school pride at the University of Delaware. UD might not have the best sports team but the pep and community is not lacking. Everyone gets dressed in blue and yellow and some people even paint their faces. The gym facilities are very nice and there are more than one based on area of campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have attended three different colleges during the past four years and the University of Delaware was by far my favorite. The experiences, friends and knowledge gained are unmeasurable. I have only been at UD for two and a half years, but I have fallen in love with the school. As I approach my last semester of college I know it will be a bittersweet ending. I highly recommend this school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The RA's dont do much, but the rooms i ended up with are nice. I think they should get rid of the ones without air conditioning because they are absolutely awful.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Again, I'm not really involved in greek life and do not know much about it. I think some of the people take it a little too seriously.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm really not involved at all in athletics so I don't know much about it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most kids there are really nice and welcoming. Teachers are hit or miss. Housing is great and the new dining hall is good.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People do drugs and no one really does anything about it

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a wide range of courses to choose from and it is very easy to get the classes you want! I absolutely love my schedule I don't have any class on Monday until after 1pm.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
