Overall Experience: My love for this place is too great to put into words.

Party Scene: The nightlife here is insane. Not much to do in DE so all the effort is put into partying your a** off during the weekend. Also, the day drink scene is one of the best in the country. Extremely underrated.

Party Scene: You could probably party every day of the week if you wanted to. Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays take the bulk of nightlife. However, you will find a Mimosa Monday, Tequila Tuesday, or Wine Wednesday every once in awhile. Personally I've met some of my best friends through parties. If you're about the scene, the party life brings so many positives to the table.

Academics: For a state school, fantastic academics. The business program is very underrated to a lot of people outside of Delaware.

Diversity: Haven't heard of anything bad yet. Mostly white kids here but that doesn't mean they're not accepting.

Health & Safety: It's a big school and there are a lot people out and about so you'll never be completely alone. I could see some more cops out at night.

Overall Experience: The class will vary depending on the class (ie Intro to Psych or Philosophy) but everyone is engaged in learning. The professors are knowledgable on the topic they are teaching.

Overall Experience: So far, I've had an amazing time with the Career Services here at UD. If you want something, they have it. They also have many events that you could go to and benefit from.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great option. The best dorms to live at are Caesar Rodney, Gilbert, and Redding Hall. These resident halls are all for freshman though. The social atmosphere is amazing and the floors do a lot of special activities with their RAs and friends. North Campus kind of a far walk from classes.

Greek Life: Everyone that joins Greek life love it. I personally my self have went to social events where you get to meet the Greeks. A ton of people show up every time an event is held. There are lettered Greek houses on campus and many non-Greeks are indifferent about the Greeks.

Athletics: It's great that we're a D1 school, but I believe fan support and school spirit will boost tremendously if we started to win a lot of games. The intramurals are an awesome part of the athletics and so many students are involved. Once my school starts winning a lot of its Varsity games then UD will be my dream school! I would pick it 100% of the time.

Overall Experience: The atmosphere at the University of Delaware is unparalleled to any of the other schools I've visited. As soon you walk out the doors of Memorial Hall you experience the beautiful scenery of The Green. With so many students eager to get to class and learn, it really encourages you to do your best because you're here to learn. The fact that there are sooo many clubs and events on campus makes coming to this school completely worth it. Professional networking and friends are just two amazing things of what the University of Delaware has to offer. I would definitely choose this school again.

Drug Safety: Honestly, you will not feel the need to partake if you don't want to. A lot of people do though.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Besides the fact that a guy who killed a kid just for taking his speakers is still a student and not in jail, safety is really top notch here.

Campus Housing: I would give it a 5 star review about two years ago but not anymore for one reason, not enough options. They did have enough before but last year, Delaware had its largest grade total in the history of the school. And without adding in more housing options, they decided to break that record again. Currently, there was multiple buildings being built so the housing situation should blow over in a short while.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Just because I gave it a 5/5 doesn't mean that it compares to the schools down south. However, I do believe that the contributions our greek community does to give back brings them up from the 4/5 zone (for parties, looks, and greek life importance) up to the 5/5 spot. Unfortunately, the administration here has a vendetta against greek life and have been suspending many chapters over the past 5 years. If they can loosen their grip a little (and give fraternities the right to put there letters on houses so everyone can see), this greek life scene could soar higher than it is now. And it's already known as a great party school.

Athletics: For the size my school is, you would've thought a "Rah-Rah" school spirit would be built in. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Years ago, the school took away tailgating, and ever since then, It was gone further downhill. Some of the tailgates of old were huge and brought in a large number of people to the games.

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.
