5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The RAs made the first few days after moving in better and helped with floor bonding. Each class I went to was engaging and interesting, the professors made me want to do well in those classes.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I could do it over again, I would come back and be more focused during my freshman year. It's a great school, and I really feel like I'm being prepared for my future. However, the diversity is lacking, and that is one thing that I wish I had been more involved in changing. It's my junior year and I haven't tried to do much to help the diversity issue.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Whenever a crime occurs (ex. robbery), students receive an alert by text message, email, and by phone call. Parents also receive alerts if something serious occurs. Police are always around patrolling, making campus seem safer.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors take their subjects very seriously. They are passionate about what they teach and want their students to succeed. The courses are well structured. Class sizes are generally smaller when it comes to courses for a specific major. Bigger class sizes are for general classes/pre-req. There are a variety of courses to take!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career Services is dedicated to helping students build strong resumes, take interviews, and search for strong internships and careers. Most Delaware students are highly looked at by companies. The Music Education BA degree has an extremely high placement rate in schools (most graduates leave with a job already lined up).

Campus Housing: Depending on which dorm you live in, you will have a different experience. The older dorms usually lack air conditioning, ample space, and overall building quality. Although, the quality isn't as nice as the newer dorms, the resident community and social atmosphere is outstanding, sometimes even better than the new dorms. Because of the smaller space in the actual rooms, residents come together in the common areas and build strong relationships. The new dorms are very clean, spacious, resembling a nice hotel. The housing on North Campus is very nice, but is farther away from classes, which can be inconvenient.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big. A vast majority of freshman try to be apart of Greek life. The process is difficult, but it doesn't stop people from wanting to join.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: UD has been promoting school spirit and fan support during the football season. There have been pep rallies, emails, cheerleaders in the dining halls, etc. The team performance isn't has strong as it should be for a D1 school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Delaware is an excellent school. Professors are always ready to help their students and the classes are interesting. The campus itself is beautiful, especially in the spring with the flowers and blooming trees.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Most of my professors were great. Only had a problem with a few and mostly the new ones that had just started teaching.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I got involved with a professor in research and it has proven very helpful in job hunting.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The police keep the campus well informed

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Some were better than others

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I never joined but they were everywhere and always doing something.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Loved my professors for my major and most of the ones for Gen Ed classes.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When you are walking at night, you can always see a blue light where you can press a button for services to come if you do not feel safe.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: A lot of crime but you have to be dumb to be walking down the sketchiest street in Newark at 3am on a Tuesday alone!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've been introduced to internships I never would have imagined getting/enjoying, and already have a job offer (along with many of my friends that are seniors as well) for when I graduate college, all because of my Senior Capstone class.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Some are good, others don't give a you know what because they've been doing it for so long.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: No matter the size of the class or the lecture, professors will offer some of their time for students to meet with them outside of the class hours to help the students understand better.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Receiving experience that applies to the career the student wants to take part in is important and has a large focus

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My floor is very close-knit and we all support each other.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Students show pride in their fraternity or sorority

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: New dorm options are like upscale hotels for freshman.. they're unreal

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Whether on the team or not, students take part in the wins or losses

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.
