4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: off campus dining is pretty good, main street has a ton of places to eat if you have the money to do so.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is pretty laid back. They know that this is college, and you're going to drink, party, etc. They just want you to do it safely

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Party scene is good. On any given night theres a party somewhere unless rush stuff is going on or its finals/midterm week. It's gets boring after a while though.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process itself wasn't terrible, but UD doesn't give out much money in the first place.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining hall food is decent, better than most colleges but not mouthwateringly good. Other places like perkins and trabant as good, but its super pricey.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is pretty good. There's a ton to do and the dorms are average. The housing process is kind of annoying and on campus housing is expensive.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many students and a limited number of houses.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is so much variety for off campus dining. Most are fairly good and well priced.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness is based on laws, no underage drinking, which is completely understandable. There are also noise rules because the walls are so thin and people are trying to sleep.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is usually a party going on friday or saturday. It does get crowded, but they are fun for a bit to just relax and unwind from stress.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My mom had to practically beg for financial aid, but it did come through. I received merit and financial based scholarships.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are good days and bad when it comes to the dining hall. I will say there is not a good enough healthy option for food. The food is really overpriced as well.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms aren't too big. The walls are paper thin, I can literally hear a pin drop from upstairs. The building is not air conditioned, but there is heat. I am fairly close to class and important buildings.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Student Health and Safety is not something that the university seems to care at all about

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I hate greek life here. Its a very annoying culture.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Great athletics, but sometimes it feels as if UD only cares about their reputation and the football team.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They will penalize you for something EXTREMELY trivial and stupid, but when it comes to the things that really matter, like campus security and rape-culture, they don't seem to care.

Party Scene: If you like to party, UD is the place for you.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was denied any type of help when forced to withdraw from classes due to a family emergency. I had to fight tooth and nail to receive the smallest portion possible of a rebate.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is no variety, and not enough availability. It is overpriced as well.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing program completely ruined my freshman year, and did not even care about my well being.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing has many options and really allows you to live with your best friends. It is what most people do by Junior year. A lot more freedom and much better than living in small dorm rooms.

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus food options are much better and more preferred compared to the on campus dining.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is good at doing what they are hired to do. They are usually very nice and good at their jobs. I have run into some that seem completely incompetent though.

Party Scene: The parties on campus are great! They are so fun, especially on warm and sunny Saturdays! Frat parties are fun, but they get very old fast. Bars are fun, but they are very packed and hard to get into.

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.
