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.

3 College Student

Diversity: I mean the university of delaware is mainly middle class white kids but there is a decent population of asians and some other minorities if you look closely

3 College Student

Greek Life: Greek Life is prevalent at UD and those who a part of it seem to really love it. I am not a part of greek life and have no desire to be. For boys it can be a little difficult to get into frat parties which are most house parties. As a girl greek life seems unappealing.

5 College Student

Local Area: The townies can sometimes be a little creepy but other than that it is so awesome to go down main street and hit up the night life

Technology: UD wifi is really reliable and it covers all of campus so you can even be sitting outside on the green and still be able to connect

3 College Student

Transportation: The UD bus app is really helpful but sometimes the buses are annoying to deal with. North South express is a life saver though when going from laird campus to classes

4 College Student

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe on campus and am never really concerned about my well being. I am a girl so I don't particularly like to walk alone at night, but that is the same for anywhere.

2 College Junior

Weather: It rains very frequently here, especially in the spring. It makes it difficult to do work occasionally but it could be worse. We have bad weather and good weather like everywhere else. It's not something that can be changed, so the way you work around it has to be thought about

Academics: The workload is tough, but this is a great school where many great people have come from. Neighbors, family friends and potential future employers have told me that if they see UD on an application, that application automatically gets moved to the top of the pile because their programs produce such great graduates.

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.
