Guys & Girls: The student body here is a very attractive one on the whole. The party scene and social life is thriving and pretty important to many. However, a large part of the students (male and female) are very driven academically, with clear career goals.

Majors: The process of applying for this program was seamless with very few challenges. While transcript and grades were important, relevant work and research experience and other involvement seemed to play a primary role in the evaluation of applicants.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a chemistry major. UD has one of the best programs. I am so proud to be apart of it. The Fauclty is filled with some the brightest most caring people. The workload is steady but doable. Everyone is rooting for you and youearn things you wouldn't learn anywhere else. If you are thinking a out chemistry consider UD.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Some subjects are better than others. Undeniable science programs especially chemsitry. I haven't run across a bad prof. This is a gem of a school. I couldnt be happier.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Finicial aid was ease to apply for. It is all setup on your account on UDSIS. Schlorships that are available or that you are eligible for are laid out in an easy straight forward manner.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: UD has main st. It is a strip of restarants. There is also shopping,movies, and bowling. It is a fantastic atmosphere.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are a lot of Greek houses but they are in the background. I hear initiation is like a cattle call. Most of the Greeks I hear of are all about the comradarery not the parties so much.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: People are extremely nice. It is diverse on campus. If you are into something there is definetly a group of people on campus that are into the same thing and would love to meet you. Extremely friendly and accepting.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshmen housing was easy to navigate. You described what you wanted with a click survey and almost everybody received the type of room they wanted. RAs were more than helpful. Some of the rooms are older but in the next couple years freshmen will be in all newly built dorms. Spacious and ease acres to campus. After freshmen year get to pick exact room you want. Good system. Unique rooms that are perfect for a college student.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Needs to be improved and more funds should be given to people in need.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe. There is definitely help available 24/7 you just have to take the initiative to call and ask for help. However if you are in trouble most people will help you and help save a life. Though outside campus there are pretty serious problems sometimes that needs to be taken under concern. Thefts and robberies are normal on campus and that area needs to be improved it. Since UDEL is an open campus that is another concern. It should be made a closed one and they are also working in prohibiting cigarette smoking in public which is a positive move.

Overall Experience: Favorite experiences of my school contains of all the extra curricular activities they organize which vary from free- at a very cheap cost. For example we have had big celebrities and famous personalities for concerts and shows such as Ed Sheeran, Jcole, Aziz Ansari, Sonia Sotomayor, ofcourse our Alumni Vice-President Joe Biden so many times and many more popular figures in the past when I was not even enrolled at the University of Delaware. Joe Biden was just present at the University of Delaware's graduating class's commencement and gave an excellent speech. What makes my School unique is that even though Delaware is small living on campus in Newark feels like living in a city but also isolated from the rest of the state noise. So it's best of both worlds because everything is easily accessible and going everywhere else is so much closer too. For instance, Philadelphia is just right around the corner about 40 minutes away. Maryland is 25 mins away and New York is close too. So one can definitely go out of state in round about an hour or so with car or if one does not have car we have the service of mega bus which is so cheap and works best for college students. Whats sad is they might be shutting this mega bus service but there are definitely other ways to go around town and out with trains which are only about few dollars with a full day pass to Philadelphia, New York and other places. There are also other bus services! I would definitely choose my school again because it is only 20 mins away from home and I live on campus so I have both experiences of living close to home, going home on weekends if I want to but to also enjoy and explore campus.

Greek Life: Greek Life is greek life and it is cliquey as in any other universities. We do have one big philantrophic event from all greek lifes but also open to anyone else which plays a great role in contributing to the communities and people have cancer specifically. A lot of fund is collected which is used for a good cause.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It can be tough sometimes to manage when you have 2 majors and 1 minor with volunteering, extra-curricular activities and leadership roles. With time management however it is definitely duable.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had any internships yet however I plan to have one soon. It could be hard to find one however there are some great internships for one's major and outside majors too. Just have to work hard to get them, should've taken ccertain higher level courses for some, other requirements should be fulfilled and need to have certain skills to achieve them.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing can be really expensive and hard to find. It takes forever to sign the lease and it's really competitive for places which are close to campus. It can take up to 6 months for you to even get the place sometimes so file it quickly and know you are definitely going to live there if you sign the lease because even that is not an easy process.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It can get pretty hectic to be a bio major and another major with a minor. As University of Delaware is a public Ivy it's a pretty competitive curriculum. Internships are competitive and require hardwork. There are definitely Job opportunities for people who need work study but they are first come first serve based. Other Jobs are also available but they are competitive and first come first sever. One might think since it's Delaware there aren't that many program but that is wrong. There are a lot of Career programs, internship programs, class programs UDEL has with other colleges and Universities. Some are direct and some are not but there are definitely connections. Facilities at University of Delaware are okay!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are some of the most experienced and highly educated. Curriculum is pretty straight-forward and easy to pick up/ drop minors and majors. Registration Process can be really frustrating sometimes though. University Of Delaware has some really great courses and majors however it can be frustrating getting into those courses. Some courses are only reserved for certain majors and some courses are only taught in spring/ fall while some are full (despite having that class belongs to your major) and some courses only have 1 class taught per semester. That could be a problem sometimes as first two year of undergrad years it's not easy to enroll in all the courses you want/ designed your schedule around. Workload is not bad if kept up with and taken seriously. However it depends on the major. ANy science major workload or all 400 level course classes could get pretty hectic. There are special study options and study abroad areas are wonderful. Since University of Delaware was the first University to come up with a study abroad there are so many opportunities. There are study abroad places in mostly every continent. As UDEL has a winter break for 2 months there are opportunities for study abroad all around the year and special opportunities of volunteer abroad for even 7-10 days through various clubs/organizations.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports events are big. First games are huge deal and usually it's hard to find seats in every game. You have to come 1 and half early to find good seats or sit closer to the field. Intramurals are next important and club events are given the least importance as they are just for fun.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Rules (especially no underage drinking, no drug use, Honor codes and parking spot rules) are taken pretty seriously which is a great thing.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is definitely diversity and clubs and organizations related to them. However not a lot of students in them as the college is medium sized student body! But, one good thing is religious beliefs and all cultures are accepted.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There aren't many activities or attractions near by. Few places such as bowling, movie theaters and a mall near 10-15 miinutes. However there are buses that go to NY, Philly, Boston, NC, and other cities for pretty cheap.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of food places right near University of Delaware on Main Street. From various types of Pizzas, to several types of Mexican food places, other variation in Italian food besides Pizza, Chinese, Indian, Thai places, Starbcuks, IHOP, bakeries, Dunkin Donuts, Froyo, Icecream places and few other restaurants, late night places and several others. It is great- convenient and opens up a lot of options.

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.
