4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is high at UD. Fans get deked out in blue and gold for games and proudly sing the fight song.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful. Walking to class, no matter what time, is like walking through a park. It is relaxing and a great stress reliever

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think Delaware is kind of a sketchy state to begin with, but when I'm walking alone on campus I feel generally safe. There are cameras and emergency buttons all over campus which makes me feel better. But off campus I probably wouldn't walk alone at night.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Having a degree from UD is a pretty big deal in the working world. When an employer sees that they'll definitely be impressed. Student Career Services posts many job/internship opportunities and all you have to do is upload your resume and apply right on the site.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Ratemyprofessor.com is a god send when you're scheduling your classes, because some classes have different professors and depending on which one you get could make or break your experience in the course. I enjoy the wide variety of classes that UD has to offer. My major is a larger one so my classes are usually 100 people or less.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most of the new buildings are very nice with spacious rooms, private bathrooms, and AC/heat. If you live in an older building you may be sharing a bathroom with your floor and also not have AC. My campus housing experiences have been fantastic.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My RA and floormates are the absolute best. we always hang out together and do all kinds of things to have fun

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know much about it other than some groups are very very party orientated where as others are actually for student benefit.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Since being a freshman in 2013, I definitely feel like Greek life is a much larger part of UD. I am not in Greek life and I still have friends and a social life, so I'm not complaining. The Greek life people make their fraternity or sorority a part of their life and I feel like they don't really have friends outside of their group. The only thing they're really good for is the parties.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our teams are better than average and are often attended by many students. Also there is a huge gym for everyone to enjoy

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All of my teachers so far have been very involved with the success of their students and I find that to be absolutely incredible.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports at UD aren't a huge part of the campus life, maybe that's just because our teams aren't that great. Many non-varsity athletes participate in intramural teams and it's a great way to make new friends or bond with your dorm.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UD is considered a big school, but I feel like I know everyone and we're all connected together by other people. But that doesn't mean I don't meet new people every day, because I do! This school is great for getting involved and finding what you're passionate about, the possibilities are endless.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are blue light stations located all over campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You definitely need to research your professors before picking them.

Overall Experience: UD is the best school in Delaware. A degree goes a long way.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most on-campus options require a meal plan, unfortunately.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Non-Greek students tend to view Greek life as party life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The football games are a key part of student life on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being so close to home makes it a convenient school to attend.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The Associates in the Arts program has many perks! you get the meet many new people with the same goals as you. Class sizes are typically small to medium, and i love it! I love when the professor knows who I am instead of just being a name on the list.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Job internships, I feel, should be advertised more. I feel like the career center should have career fairs

4 College Student

Athletics: The school offers a wide range of sports for everyone! And every team is prepared with proper equipment and areas to play.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: So far, the school is great! The professors help you as much as needed, you just need to ask for help. I was accepted into a brand- new partnership and it is FANTASTIC! I would totally recommend this route to anyone.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I don't know how it compares to other college campuses, but crime is a problem. We have blue call lights that you can push if you ever feel unsafe, and the police will come get you. However, we still get UDPD emails every week notifying of attempted or actual assaults. I never feel completely safe at night.

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.
