4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone is encouraged to go to football games and get involved with sports. It is a great way to get free stuff. I am personally not a sports person, but I have gone to football games and it was great. The school also has a great gym which is available to all students. It is new too, so all the equipment is up to date and fully functional.

Overall Experience: I really love Delaware. Everyone is friendly and there is a great sense of community. The school gives you plenty of options of fun activities to do, and the party scene is great. The food is also A+ (we have fresh food delivered the morning it is made, and meal plan is swipe style - so basically one swipe to get into the dinning hall and then you have free reign to get all the food you want). The town is great and within walking distance even from the furthest dorm. So it is easy to get off campus dining and apartments. Teachers are great and most are very concerned with your success. They will stay and reteach material in office hours if you really need. The health center is open 24 hours. The communication between you and the school is great, too. If you need information, someone will get back to you within the day on average, as long as it's during work hours. The campus is beautiful and there is a lot of history with it (Delaware being the first state and all). You will definitely find the right group for you and there are plenty of clubs and organizations for you to get involved with. Also, gym membership is free, so it encourages you to avoid the freshman 15. Overall, I really love my school.

Athletics: If you are looking for a big time sports school Delaware is not it. Our athletics aren't the best and no one attends the games. Homecoming weekend isn't even pumped up for the football team, but instead for the dages that happen. If anything our club sports are better than varsity sports.

Overall Experience: Delaware has everything to offer. It has so many clubs you can join and if you can't find one you like you can start your own! During the week you walk across a beautiful campus and are surrounded by classic brick buildings. When the weekend rolls around you can guarantee that you will find a party or an event on campus to attend.

Health & Safety: Health and Safety is pretty good.

Health & Safety: The campus does a wonderful job at making sure the students feel safe. There are multiple help buttons spread out throughout campus that students can go to if they feel as though they are in a dangerous situation.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great experience. Some of your closest friends can very well be the people who only live a couple doors down. All the freshman doors on East Campus are at a pretty good distance from the classes as well as the dining halls. The only downside of some of the dorms is the lack of air conditioning. The first couple of weeks were very uncomfortable for the heat was extremely high.

Greek Life: It is very competitive for guys to join fraternities but it is not as bad for girls who wish to join sororities.

Athletics: Sporting events are great and fun to go to but as a whole there is not a huge amount of school spirit at said events. The athletic facilities are great very large and has something for everyone.

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.
