Scholarships: I received federal aid which I am now paying off. I mainly say "it's okay" because I wish I could afford to pay off more of my debt each month.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The campus is very reasonable when it comes to enforcing policies. I was a Resident Assistance while at UD and safety was my number one concern. It's college and students are going to drink. You can't stop that. However, the school does a very good job of making sure students are staying safe. Students trust RA's and other campus safety officers.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Sororities never grabbed much of my attention, but I remember a few of my floor mates going through the stressful rushing process! They were so excited it almost got me interested -- almost.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There are plenty of activities you can find on campus, but it's nice to have the mall fifteen minutes away when you feel like heading off campus for a little while!

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love my wildlife classes! My brain doesn't necessarily know how to work when it comes to molecules and chemistry, but I definitely enjoy the classes that have to do with my major specifically. The faculty are always willing to help, no matter if it's about academics, internships, job opportunities, etc.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Personally, I know people, both of age and underage, who drink alcohol quite frequently. However, I've only heard marijuana mentioned a handful of times.

5 College Freshman

Majors: For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to major in Wildlife Conservation. I definitely don't think I could have chosen a better place! The faculty are friendly, resourceful, and always willing to help. Though I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with my degree yet, I'm enjoying my time as a student.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Probably the most difficult part about getting into any program is the essay you're required to write. For me, I found it easy because I wrote my paper on Steve Irwin; the one person who inspired me more than anything to become a Wildlife Conservationist.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Though I prefer to walk our beautiful campus, the shuttle buses are more than convenient, especially on cold or rainy days!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: So far, I've only attended one Blue Hen basketball game, but the school spirit was definitely overwhelming.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Aside from a few people having clothes stolen from the laundry rooms, I haven't heard of any thefts or other types of crimes on campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't know much about the financial aid process and so I think I may have better luck my second time around. However, I think getting financial aid may be easier if you are doing well with your academics.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty popular around campus. They are always doing fundraisers and you will always see a lot of people sporting their chapters letters.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: You don't need it. Everything is basically walking distance and if you need to take a bus they come very quickly and they're free.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I think our academics are very good. the workload is decent but not extremely over whelming. There are very good professors, granted there are a few bad ones though.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is definitely drugs at college, you will find that anywhere. I have never noticed any hardcore or very dangerous drugs and you will not find or see any of it unless you partake in it yourself.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Rodney which is very old and small, however I'm pretty sure they are tearing it down or renovating sometime soon. I know many people who live in the nicer dorm rooms which there are more of. Many of them look like hotel rooms they are so nice. Especially George Read, Reading, and Gilbert.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a decent amount of financial aid through FAFSA and loans and grants. It was not much of a difficult process as long as you fill out what you're supposed to.

Diversity: We have a lot of diversity on campus. There are tons of clubs for any race you could think of and many of them are very active.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The only thing that is extremely and annoyingly strict is the parking. Parking tickets are very common if you do not read the rules and regulations VERY carefully.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Currently I am living in a dorm but I have an apartment ready for me and my friends starting in June. Granted we had to camp out to make sure we got a really good one but I love where we will be living and it is close to campus and also right on Main Street.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is the same as what I am always used to, it is quite average. It rains, snows, is sunny, usually always decent.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Every one is always friendly and there is always some place to go! Even if you are underage and do not drink or do not wish to attend a frat or sports party, the university offers tons of alternate options that do not involve drinking that are still exciting.

4 College Freshman

Technology: There are many great computers at our University. This includes the library and many labs. However some labs have some outdated computers but they still work perfectly fine.

Majors: Advisors are always happy to help when deciding on a major. I personally have changed my major around 3 times and have had very good experiences talking to my advisor to definitely decide on what I want to do. I am in the process of switching over to Exercise Science but have to complete a chemistry and biology class first, that was the only problem I ever encounters revolving around my major.

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.
