5 College Freshman

Majors: For my degree, it was not difficult to get into at all. I just had to fill out an online form and wait for it to be approved by the registrar and other advisers. To get into this school in general, it is necessary to take rigorous classes in high school and prove that you can handle your academic load as well as extracurricular activities. They are looking for well rounded students.

Campus Housing: My dorm may be one of the oldest and the smallest, but it is definitely the most social. I have made many new friends this year, just on my floor! I am excited for years to come, when I will live in dorms that may be a little newer and closer to everything! Living on campus at the University of Delaware is one of the best college decisions I have made thus far.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I do not have many tips, other than to tell the truth. At the University of Delaware, not much financial aid is given. I am a first generation college student who is trying to put herself through college, and I hardly received any money at all.

5 College Freshman

Technology: Never had any problems with using internet or finding a computer to use.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I haven't met any people who have very radical or very conservative beliefs. Everyone is moderate.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation on main campus is decent. For some of the other campuses, the transportation is terrible.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: To print, we have to swipe our UD I.D. cards. It can be pretty difficult to print an important document when you have to worry about how much money you have on your flex account. In my opinion, printing should be free; it will be more convenient for us college students.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: In my opinion, there are some great off campus housing that provide quality rooms and are a decent distance from campus. However, the downside to off campus housing is the security. I always hear about robbery, break-ins, etc in the off campus housing areas.

Athletics: The students and faculty on the University of Delaware campus are very involved with our sports teams. At the games, there are also plenty of people there supporting the teams.

Weather: When it rains, getting to and from buildings across campus is a challenge. By the time I get to class, I am completely soaked and it takes the whole class period for my clothes to dry off. In addition, it is very easy to get splashed by puddles of water when you're walking on the sidewalk when a car drives by.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: As a minority on campus, I realize how little diversity there is on the University of Delaware campus. In a classroom, chances are I can count all the number or minorities on one hand (African Americans, Blacks, Hispanics, etc.) Minorities definitely stand out on the campus because there are so few of us. This needs to change.

Administration: The campus security is strict when it comes to things such as parking but I do not feel like they are strict at all when it comes to underage drinking. It is guaranteed that if you go to any party, at least 70% of the people drinking are under the age of 21. Not good.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I haven't begun taking classes with the actual coursework for my major, however, I feel like these next few years will be very interesting. Medical Laboratory Science will definitely be a challenge but I am looking forward to fighting through it.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Everyone drinks all the time

Local Area: Newark is a nice town with plenty to do if you are 21. It is also close to philly and NYC or even washington DC.

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.
