3 College Freshman

Weather: the weather is very average, completely seasonal, nothing bad to say about it

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: depends on what view you have towards greek life. it definitely has a bigger role at the school than anyone wants to admit.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is all based on luck of the draw. you can either be placed in the worst living conditions or the best, and as a freshman you're paying the same regardless

5 College Freshman

Transportation: For me it's been pretty easy to commute to and from school. Not only is there an amtrak within a 15 minute walk of campus,but there is a megabus that is super cheap that will go to places such as nyc, baltimore, philly, and dc

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus isn't too strict, it's like most other colleges, there are limitations on what you cannot and can do but nothing that will really control how your time is spent

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love the food thats offered on main street. There are plenty of places to order from late at night, like your average munchy food as well as a variety of sit down restaurants

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I dont have much to say for this because ive never lived off campus

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I thought that the school spirit here would revolve more around the sports than they actually do. A lot of the school spirit simply comes from people being proud of being a blue hen. Not many people attend the sporting events, at least not regularly

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Newark DE is a fun college campus with the main street running through it, but that's about all there is. There's no big town or city to go to to do new and interesting things. Newark primarily revolves around the university.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I can't say much about the diversity from personal experience, but the campus isn't diverse enough (in my opinion) to make any generalized statements

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've gone through waves of liking and not liking this school. I haven't made up my mind yet, I think it has a lot to do with the type of person you are and the type of people you're surrounded by.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't think it's a very strict environment. Some of the RA's are chill and more lenient, I've heard of a few people getting written up for illegal activities in their rooms where the police have been involved. But overall, pretty lenient.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Main street has a bunch of interesting and yummy places to try, also a trip to the mall is a good place to eat.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I have never had a problem with wifi, and there are a few places you can go to print things if needed, but the printer I like to use has been broken for a couple weeks, so I found it convenient that a few people on my floor brought printers.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is average, we get snow and we get nice sunny days. I just think the weather was a little messed up this year, maybe global warming?

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am living in Dickinson this year and it is in my opinion the worst housing on campus. It is the farthest walk, and the building itself is awful and hideous. The rooms are tiny and there's no air conditioning so I could barely sleep for the first month of school. This building should be demolished.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is some diversity on campus, but it's not a very diverse school. Majority is white.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We get alerts to our phones whenever there is any trouble in the area, warning students to be careful. The police are always making rounds so it's easy to feel safe. Also, there is a blue light system just in case you don't feel comfortable at any time.

4 College Freshman

Majors: There are a lot of majors to choose from. I am very happy with my major, Spanish Education, and I look forward to the many study abroad opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I enrolled into the Business school when I first came to Delaware and after a semester I switched out and into Arts and Sciences. Switching was a bother, and it took several phone calls and a couple weeks of waiting to switch. This was something I had to figure out on my own.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love the classes I am taking right now, the teachers are great and the material is interesting. There is a large workload though, and I study about 3 hours every night. The advisors can be helpful in choosing classes and planning your college route, but I switched majors which was an annoying process where the advisors were helpless to me.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It would have been nice to get some financial aid, but I was awarded a scholarship for merit without even applying for it.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I guess it's really good, I didn't rush this semester therefore, I'm not in greek life but, everyone who is loves it.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I don't use the campus transportation because I would rather walk and I don't like waiting, or using the bus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Any given night of the week there is somewhere to go, you do have to know some people in order to get access, but that isn't very difficult, just ask around.

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.
