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.

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.

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.

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.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: As a nursing student, I'm pretty isolated from the rest of campus life; all of my classes are predominately in the same building, taught by mostly the same professors (all of which, being old lady nurses, are the sweetest people alive), with the same classmates, so my opinion of courses and professors doesn't really apply to the other 99% of the school's academics. The nursing school is great though; it's extremely challenging but worth the time commitment.

As far as athletics go, I'm a varsity athlete and think our athletic facilities are really great... if you don't run track. We have a great outdoor track and soccer field but our indoor track, the ONLY indoor track in the state of Delaware (where pretty much all high school meets were held and where we held home meets) was turfed over. If anything, they could have instituted a roll-out turf like what Navy has in their field house but WHATEVER NO ONE CARES ABOUT TRACK.

Anyway, my overall experience has been great; I feel prepared as a nurse and have gotten so much out of my experiences here.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The nursing school dedicates a lot of time to our future. My professors really care about us passing the NCLEX and getting jobs and we have two entire classes senior year dedicated to resumes, interviews, and NCLEX and we also have an alumni Q&A panel so we get an idea of what to expect after graduation. I also get several emails notifying me when hospitals such as Johns Hopkins or Christiana visit the school or when there's a medical symposium, etc. I've never gone to the career center but have uploaded my resume to the Blue Hen Careers site and got good feedback from it and have gone to my professors for help too. Because of one of my professors, I was able to get a great internship at a physical therapy clinic, that gave me experience in medicine but a little outside the nursing field.

Greek Life: Some sororities/frats are okay, others are annoying as hell.

Athletics: THEY TORE UP OUR INDOOR TRACK FOR A USELESS TURF. WE HAVE LIKE 500000 TURFS.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Only downside is the ridiculous out-of-state tuition.

Health & Safety: The safety is ok. There are reports of robberies around the campus that come in every now and then. But we have both campus and Newark police circling the campus along with campus security. I feel relatively safe on campus, unless it's a Friday or Saturday night. Then I would prefer not to go out.

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.
