4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is usually a party going on friday or saturday. It does get crowded, but they are fun for a bit to just relax and unwind from stress.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My mom had to practically beg for financial aid, but it did come through. I received merit and financial based scholarships.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are good days and bad when it comes to the dining hall. I will say there is not a good enough healthy option for food. The food is really overpriced as well.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms aren't too big. The walls are paper thin, I can literally hear a pin drop from upstairs. The building is not air conditioned, but there is heat. I am fairly close to class and important buildings.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Student Health and Safety is not something that the university seems to care at all about

Greek Life: I hate greek life here. Its a very annoying culture.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Great athletics, but sometimes it feels as if UD only cares about their reputation and the football team.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They will penalize you for something EXTREMELY trivial and stupid, but when it comes to the things that really matter, like campus security and rape-culture, they don't seem to care.

Party Scene: If you like to party, UD is the place for you.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was denied any type of help when forced to withdraw from classes due to a family emergency. I had to fight tooth and nail to receive the smallest portion possible of a rebate.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is no variety, and not enough availability. It is overpriced as well.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing program completely ruined my freshman year, and did not even care about my well being.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing has many options and really allows you to live with your best friends. It is what most people do by Junior year. A lot more freedom and much better than living in small dorm rooms.

Administration: The administration is good at doing what they are hired to do. They are usually very nice and good at their jobs. I have run into some that seem completely incompetent though.

Party Scene: The parties on campus are great! They are so fun, especially on warm and sunny Saturdays! Frat parties are fun, but they get very old fast. Bars are fun, but they are very packed and hard to get into.

Scholarships: They don't give out many scholarships unless you are a different race or amazing at academics. It is very hard to get any aid at all. I got some, but not enough that I needed to avoid loans.

Campus Food: Main street is the best. The dining halls have some great options but a lot of it never fills me up. It isn't simple enough sometimes too. I want normal buttered noodles, and it has to have a million different things with it too. The PODS are amazing, definitely the best idea they had on campus. A lot of options. A lot is overpriced though.

Campus Housing: Living on east campus and north campus is fantastic. It is very well kept and very nice. A/C on east campus is hard to come by unless in the new dorms on east campus. Rodney and Dickinson are not good dorms. But they are being torn down. Dorms are close to campus. Very friendly people work with them. Housing is stressful because finding people to live with and getting where you want is a lot to do.

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.
