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.

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.

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 Experience: I love this school. The professors are amazing and are very helpful. The class styles vary depending on which class you take. But there are a variety of classes to take, so your schedule will be full with interesting classes.

Overall Experience: The school prepares me for my career. The degree that I will earn will open up a variety of jobs for me. It may be a little hard to find them without a few internships here and there to give me some field experience, but I know my school will help me every step of the way.

Greek Life: Greeks and non-Greeks coexist quit nicely on campus. There are some stereotypes, but it doesn't matter whether you are apart of Greek life or not.

Athletics: The athletic teams are good, but not all of them. However, the school bounces with school spirit when it comes to athletics. All students and faculty are encouraged to go to games and cheer on the teams.

Overall Experience: I love this school. There are so many ways for students to get involved either in their field or in other diverse activities. I know in my college search, I was looking for the best program in my field. And I found that here. I also was looking for a marching band so I could continue spinning in color guard. By joining the band here, I found a second family. I wouldn't trade for the world. I would choose this school all over again if I could do it all over.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love the University of Delaware. As a biology major, I find my classes to be very challenging but doable all the same. The professors I have are passionate about what they teach. My dorm is very nice and clean and all the people on my floor became great friends. This school is great if you want to go out and party, but even if you don't want to go out it's easy to find a group of people willing to stay in.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love the University of Delaware! If you can get into the honors college, your freshman year will without a doubt be better than any of your friends. The honors housing is top notch. This campus has everything you would need within a 5 minute walk of your dorm. The food is great, the classes are a perfect size, and there is so much to do. If you like to go out, there are definitely plentiful parties. If not, there are so many other activities on the weekends to keep you entertained. I am a chemical engineering major, and the work is challenging but the professors encourage you to work with others and do not creative a competitive atmosphere at all. If you get into this school, you would be stupid not to come.

Overall Experience: My school it beautiful in general and has many great students. However some of the programs here are very ill taught for example mathematics. The teachers are not experienced enough and the course requirements are very rushed.

Overall Experience: My experience is great and I would choose the University of Delaware over again. The campus is beautiful and puts off a positive attitude. My freshman experience was amazing and it was all thanks to my RA. It was her first year as an RA but she was a great friend to everyone on the floor and did as many things as she could to make sure our first year at UD was as enjoyable as it could be. We take great pride in our Blue Hen fellowship and greatly support out sport teams.

Overall Experience: University of Delaware has so many amazing things to offer. It's very challenging academically, but has everything needed to stay involved and have an amazing time. The residence halls allow for meeting new people and making quality friendships. The campus is beautiful and allows for entertainment everywhere on site. The university's location is perfect since it's so close to the mall, Main Street centrally located and many other places to go are nearby.

Overall Experience: Not only is the University of Delaware academically advanced, but its social aspects help create a very well rounded campus that has events, clubs, and groups that will meet the interests of all types of students.

Overall Experience: School is very greek oriented and a basic college town. Although campus is beautiful, if you want a decent public schooling education its more worth your money to go somewhere way cheaper than I did, as an out of state student. I'm only a year and a half in and 60k in debt, which won't even guarantee me a job. If you're a rich white kid whose parents will pay and you think greek life in integral to college culture, go to UD. Needless to say I am transferring after this semester

Overall Experience: I thought I liked UD at first, but then the student life really got me down. Lots of people focus on greek life here which is annoying and some of the students can be real jerks. So basically: love the school, hate the people.

Overall Experience: Delaware is a great school and I love it here. Even though it is a larger school, I feel very integrated into the community here and it is easy to make friends. My only complaint is that their on-campus housing is somewhat of a rip-off.

Overall Experience: Going to Delaware was the best option for me. So far, I enjoy it very much; the classes are much harder, however i have much more focus and motivation. What makes my school unique is that in my major (pre-veternary medicine) i get a lot of hands on experience with the animals here. If i were to do it all over again i would most likely chose UD again. UD was not only the cheapest four year option for me but also the closest to home.

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.
