1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Most Greeks are annoying, they are either men (Frats) who only let girls into their parties. Or girls who are not in touch with the world or plight of others. Not very much diversity either, come on UD!

3 College Sophomore

Weather: For the most part the weather is good but sometimes it's pretty bad with rain. About average however for this area sometimes unpredictable though.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It could be better, a lot of the places are expensive yet their actual quality is pretty low. Too many places were put together to look nice rather than to last.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants could be closer to campus but that's part of being off campus.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: The frat boys are very preppy and there are a lot of preppy people here especially in greek life. There at 16000 undergrads so basically theres a little bit of everything.

2 College Student

Parking: Parking is a hassle but having a car is completely not necessary. If you are living off campus though it will be nice to know someone with a car so they can take you grocery shopping otherwise it can be a bit of a hassle.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: Buildings are nice here. I love the renovated little bob (gym)

5 College Student

Campus Quality: Campus is very easy to feel like you are at home and there are no shortage of people walking around with you.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It was stressful trying to figure out where to live at first but once the lease was signed it was completely worth it.

4 College Student

Academics: Most of our professors have above a 3.0 on rate my professor and it is pretty easy to get good professors if you pay attention when registering for classes.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I honestly love my experience at UD and almost everyone I know here loves it just as much as I do. We have an awesome study abroad program and are just the best in general.

3 College Student

Campus Food: The dining halls aren't terrible for freshman year but I was so happy to be done with the dining halls when I moved off campus. Trabant and Perkins are pretty convenient. The POD is overpriced.

5 College Student

Majors: I am happy with my program and the way my experience has worked out has reinforced my decision to attend UD.

5 College Student

Majors: Political Science isn't a competitive major so as long as you have above a 2.0 gpa you can just switch your major online.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Don't order DP dough because its gross. Most places on main street will deliver until 2 am which is pretty cool. There is not shortage of delivery options.

4 College Student

Weather: Weather changes no matter where you live. the summer starts two weeks earlier here than in long island which is nice.

3 College Student

Scholarships: Delaware doesn't give many scholarships unless you really need them. I received 9000 a year need based and that is more than I here from most of my friends.

5 College Student

Party Scene: Bars on main street are the best. Frat parties are fun for freshman year but by sophomore year you would rather just go to smaller parties with people you actually know rather than sit in a sweaty frat basement while you watch strongers make out against a wall.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: Its pretty easy to avoid taking drugs if you want to. It also is pretty easy to find a drug if you ask around a little bit. Marijuana is a lot more prevalent then any other sort of drug. You could probably find Adderall if you ask around your residence hall floor.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is good for your freshman and sophomore year. You want east campus as a freshman and laird as a sophomore. Most students move off campus after their second year.

4 College Student

Administration: Our campus isn't very strict. If you are over 21 you are allowed to have alcohol in your dorm room. Having visitors is super easy, there isn't any sign in process or anything.

3 College Student

Athletics: Everyone attends at least one football game while at UD but its mainly just the freshman who go. If you come here I suggest you attend at least one basketball game. I went to an overtime game where we beat Drexel and it was the most fun I've had at UD sober.

4 College Student

Majors: The political science major is good. They offer a variety of different concentrations and there is also a legal studies minor that is helpful for anyone who is thinking about attending law school.

4 College Student

Majors: The political science program does a pretty good job at letting you know when there are internships that are suitable for you. Blue hen careers is also a really good resource.

4 College Student

Academics: Academics are pretty great here at UD. Classes aren't ridiculously hard but you do learn a lot. Our professors are all pretty awesome as well.

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.
