4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first semester of freshman year, I struggled a great amount with my classes. I was taking bio and chem at the same time which added a lot of stress as an incoming freshman. However, my professors were amazing and helped me very much as I often confronted them with any struggles I faced while taking the courses. Most of my classes were small, allowing me to feel closer with my classmates as well as my professors. As far as my larger classes went, I still felt that I was able to reach out to my professor during office hours whenever necessary. UD offers a huge variety of courses which I find amazing as I am given the opportunity to find the subject of my upmost interest. Although I did have some professors that I did not favor, I was able to put in the effort and work in order to succeed in the class. I felt that the styles of the classes differed on each of my courses which I liked as it added variety. Overall, I found the courses to be very interesting as the helped me further find my interests and meet new people along the process.

Overall Experience: As an incoming sophomore at UD, I do not have much experience with the career prospects offered. However, my advisor is already actively putting in effort to make sure I am on the right track to attending PA school after I graduate. I am already being informed of all of the clinical hours and potential schools that I will need to research more in order to successfully find a career within my major. I am excited to continue on my path as I soon learn the quality of other career services offered on campus.

Health & Safety: At UD, I have never had to worry about my safety. As I started my freshman year, many different advisors made sure to tell the freshman of all the different resources available in the case of danger. Additionally, if any danger does happen on campus, everyone is notified by "UDalert" in order to be informed of what is going on. There are well lit paths all along campus, and everyone is constantly encouraged to walk in groups at UD. Overall, I feel very safe on campus and I feel that the resources available are tremendous.

Campus Housing: My experience with the dorms was not as pleasant as I had hoped. Unfortunately, I lived in the oldest and smallest dorms on campus with no air conditioning which made it very hard for me to adjust. Luckily, I realized that its more about the people that I was around. I had an amazing group of people on my floor as well as a great roommate. UD encourages different ways to stay social on your floor and made sure that everyone was comfortable. The cost was reasonable, however I found it unfair that students with a better dorm paid the same amount as someone who simply got unlucky with a very old and small dorm. The housing process was pretty easy as previous students helped unload and bring heavy items up to my dorm. I also found the location very convenient as my dorm was very close to the classes I attended my first year.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As a member of greek life, I find it an amazing contribution to my time at school. Greek life adds spirit and enthusiasm to the school as more people are becoming involved and meeting friends through his or her journey. However, I do feel that often times the system of greek life is not fair as some people who may desire to be involved in greek life, are not able to.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: When I first started attending UD, I was surprised to see that not many people had attended the first football game. However, this has not stopped students from doing whatever they can to be involved. UD offers multiple intramural sports that a large amount of students have joined, including myself. Although there may not be a great amount of students attending the varsity sports, the spirit and excitement is still extraordinary as they show support and hope for their team. UD offers club sports as well that seems to be very popular for the students attending. Overall, I feel that the athletics at UD is amazing, but it can definitely be improved with time.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love this school so much and could not picture myself at a better university. There is a place for everyone on this campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most people that I have met on campus have found a job right after graduating

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have learned that most of the bad things that occur on campus are not reported through UD alerts, and when events are reported on UD alerts--it's normally a while after the event has occurred. However, I do feel safe walking around campus

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: With each year I believe campus housing is getting better and better

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life has made the campus seem so much smaller in the best way possible. I have made some of my life-long friends through Greek Life.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have all of the big stadiums and games for students to go to but they mostly go unattended

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.
