3 College Junior

Scholarships: UD caters to out of state kids, while in state students barely get any money for aid or scholarships. Even though, some students are paying for college out of their own pockets.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: University of Delaware has both old and new housing so it is difficult to answer generally about each of the campus dorms. Overall they are pretty nice, close to classes, and clean.

Transportation: Public transportation is okay for venturing off campus the cost is average, the shuttles are very convenient and fast

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There lots of amazing places to live off campus, The Retreat is beautiful.

Transportation: The bus schedule app isn't always accurate, but usually if you wait at any of the bus stops (of which there is a pretty good number) you'll find yourself on a bus within about twenty minutes at the most.

Weather: I never would have thought that such a flat state would be so windy! But when the sun's out it's absolutely gorgeous.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love Independence and the other Laird campus dorms. They're big, they have air-conditioning, and they're relatively new. I wish we could open the windows but that's really my only complaint.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I personally have no problem with the Greeks. They do their own thing, they do mine. They do plenty of fundraising events so they do good for the community and they aren't overly obnoxious or anything like that. Most of them are quite nice.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The library was a large number of computers with up-to-date software, however the printing prices are a bit high.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A lot of students on campus do drugs. On holiday weekends main street becomes crowded with drunk college students, though they're usually pretty harmless.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: UD is a great school community; the campus is beautiful and there's a great diversity of both academics and student organizations.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of it is just fast food, with very few healthy options. A lot of the restaurants offer the same foods, even though they are pretty good quality.

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.
