Greek Life: A lot of Greek Life.

Overall Experience: It's becoming more expensive. Too much construction all the time.

Overall Experience: I have a strong relationship with my professors and really enjoy most of my classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Many people from Delaware go on to do great things, and they do that because Delaware gives them the resources provided.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Harrington and I love it. I wish it had air conditioning but it is located near a lot of my classes and good dining halls.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I cannot wait to rush next semester! I'm not sure what I want to rush yet but I have a few ideas... so excited to meet all of the girls though!

Athletics: I love going to football games and I really do wish it was more of an event to go to. Not as many people go to them, there's only one big one a year but I really wish it was more popular.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I grew up on the campus because my family lives right down the street so I've been destined to go to school here basically since birth, and I can't imagine being anywhere else.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was in honors housing and it was just plain fabulous. Meanwhile all the housing near me was horrible and had zero air conditioning so it paid to do well in high school.

Party Scene: It's huge, but frat parties are disgusting and their ratio requirements are ridiculous sometimes. The non-Greek smaller parties are much higher quality and a better social environment. The bar scene is pretty big, but there should be a few more bars around to spread it out better and create a safer environment for students rather than the binge drinking that happens at parties.

Party Scene: Most parties take place on Cleveland, it's just a row of trap houses.

Academics: UD academics are top-notch; their are so many different options to go into and it is very easy to pick up double majors and minors. There are a few stricter majors like engineering, but for the most part UD students have a plethora of options to finish their academic careers with. Professors are very friendly and love working with students. Study abroad began at this university and because of our Winter Sessions there are insane amounts of opportunities.

Diversity: Okay is the perfect word to describe diversity at UD. We're not too diverse, but the minority communities at UD are very strong; there are several different multicultural and religious students groups, social and academic, with memberships large and small. UD administration does recognize its diversity problem and there are many different initiatives going on to aid it, but it's the type of problem that can't be solved within a day. It's something that takes time and hopefully time will treat it well.

Drug Safety: We are a big drinking school; marijuana has it's own communities but we really aren't a stoner school. Study drugs are there if you're into that, but most students just actually study. Hard drugs really do not have a presence on campus.

Overall Experience: I love it here; I'm very happy with my decision and wouldn't change it. UD is a place for students who seek all types of opportunities, and I have really taken advantage of that.

Overall Experience: UD is on the radar for so many different groups. Our Career Services Center is great with bringing opportunities to students and vice versa. They actually decided to split the career fair into two days this year in order to better organize and create a more focuses and efficient career development event for students.

Health & Safety: Our school is looked over by several police departments including UDPD, so there's always someone looking out for students. Student Health and Student Wellness are great here because they provide so many types of services for students that other schools don't have. To my knowledge, sexual assault support on the campus is top-notch thanks to the SOS group, and the several other administrative efforts to assist victims; however I do not know the prevalence of such incidents happening on campus due to most sexual assault cases in general either not getting reported or being swept under the rug.

Campus Housing: The options range a lot; some residence halls are beautiful, others are in need of renovation/demolition (Lane and Thompson). For the most part ResLife does a great job with what they're doing.

Greek Life: If your'e in it you love it. Greek Life is very cliquey and elitist at UD; however they are only about 20% of the campus so they're not too overbearing.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't really believe that the value of a degree exists anymore. A college degree is more like a high school degree, and higher education seems to matter more than a Bachelors degree.

Health & Safety: It's a big school, things happen. For the size of the school both population and land-wise I think UD does a great job of keeping people safe.

Campus Housing: A dorm is a dorm is a dorm. It's not a fantastic living space, but it gets the job done. I don't think it's worth as much money as I'm paying.

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.
