4 College Freshman

Local Area: newark is a great college town with main street running right in the middle of campus and there are more than enough big cities around to make living there exciting

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: they gave out condoms and such in our freshman seminars along with a lot of little booklets that talked about sexual assault and helplines etc the student health center also offers a lot and its easy to get an appointment there walk home alone a lot because my dorm isn't on the main campus and i never feel unsafe they're is a lot of drinking on campus which concerns me because of date rape but i don't think most of it is truly malicious just like every one is drunk so who knows whether it was consensual or not

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They foster a lot of encouragement for varsity sports but we don't really have a lot of outstanding teams and the athletic center where all the games are, is so far from main campus

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health and safety on campus is good.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They enforce when they need to

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They're not a huge part of campus life. Sometimes students attend the games.

4 College Freshman

Majors: So far I like the Biology Department. The only concern is the integration with Biology and Chemistry for the first year. But from what it seems, most people enjoy their majors.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the school's off campus dining is on main street. There are a lot of restaurants and bars that you can attend. There is something for everyone.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Louis Redding Hall which is one of the newer and more spacious dorms. From what I have heard, some dorms can be very small and they are not the best places to live in.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are pretty frequent on campus. There is always some house party or frat party that you and your friends can attend. It is difficult for guys to get in to parties sometimes. Guys usually have to pay or come with a lot of girls or else they will probably not get in.

Local Area: I love the vibe the campus gives off. Walking down Main Street is always enjoyable and you can always find somewhere to go on there.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It is okay. I do not know much about it, as I am not a part of it nor do I intend to be.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a $9,000 yearly scholarship when I was accepted into the school. After enrolling, I had asked if there was any way I could get more money and the school ended up adding an additional $1,000 to my scholarship. We also received some financial aid with loans.

Campus Food: The food is pretty average, but the dining hall employees are super friendly, especially the staff at Russell Dining Hall.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The School of Education tries to get students experience right away, but many of the students are white, upper middle class girls who are not accepting of students who aren't similar to them. This makes it hard for the department to teach the best kind of educational practices.

2 College Freshman

Academics: Registering for classes was a nightmare for many students, and on at least one of the days the system crashed and people were unable to register at all.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most upperclassmen move off campus sophomore year, but leases are due in November so students don't have a lot of time to decide whether they want to move off campus for the next year or not. Also, some of the off campus housing is really far from main campus.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: There's not much to do off campus unless you have a car. In that case Newark is close to Philly and Baltimore, and the Christiana Mall. There is also a train station near South Campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: East Campus is decent because it's closest to many of the buildings, but most of the dorms don't have air conditioning. North Campus is nicer, but it is a far walk from main campus. West Campus is very social, but the dorms are run down and dirty. Overall, a lot of people got put into forced triples (including myself), and the honors students and athletes definitely got the best dorms.

Administration: It's pretty strict when it comes to attendance, since they use clickers in class. Also, the school's ban on tailgating has had a negative impact on athletics.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties aren't much to get excited about. I'm not a big partier to begin with, but the few times I've gone out I've been underwhelmed. The frat parties are pretty lame, and I've heard that the sports houses are okay. The best bet is to wait until you're an upperclassmen and can either go to the bars or smaller house parties, or even go to Baltimore or Philly since both of them are less than an hour away (or D.C. if you're up for a longer drive).

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.
