4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are four dining halls on campus and they typically have different food options every night. I'm a very picky eater but there is usually at least one thing on the menu that I can eat. The staff at Russell and Kent are SO sweet. I've eaten much worse food at other colleges, so I'm pleased with what we're offered at UD.

Campus Housing: Dorms are quite spacious compared to most. The old dorms (Rodney) are being knocked down and replaced with brand new dorms on Academy Street for freshman. Most buildings are new and have plenty of great amenities.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Lived in Dickinson, great social atmosphere but very old.

Campus Housing: dorms are spacious, dorm is not close to campus, housing process easy

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Retreat seemed like a really good option, but I don't like how far it is from campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Good mix of typical chain restaurants and restaurants that aren't so common, but no real diversity or cultural differences in food. Main Street's really easy to get to from virtually anywhere, though.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Mostly, if you're not blatantly breaking too many rules, administration will let you be. Just don't be stupid and show some respect for authority or the people around you, and you'll be fine.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: One of the main things that got me to attend this school was the merit scholarships that I received from them. You just have to make sure to keep advocating for yourself, and to keep pushing for aid until you get what you need.

Campus Food: dining hall has some quality food (i.e. chicken nugget day), but the food isn't very healthy and has way too many calories, with no real option to get anything better for you. the POD is nice, but is way too expensive and overpriced for what's in it. however, I really like the points system that allows us to eat in places other than the dining hall every once in a while.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: dorms vary, but mine is clean/spacious; not very social; housing process was fairly easy; expensive

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is a range of people, many preppy girls and fratty guys, jocks, honors students, etc.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports teams aren't great so not that many people typically attend the games. I would prefer sporting events to be bigger here and the university does try and talk them up but the performance is just not there.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is bigger than I would have expected here. I wish it wasn't as big because I do not want to or have the money to join a sorority

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The security and campus police do their jobs good but from what I've seen the thefts and robberies that have happened do not look like they get solved. I feel safe as a tall big male and I will protect and defend the student body if the situation ever arose.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I have not received any financial aid that is beneficial to my college career. I have applied and all I receive are loans that I do not want to use because then I have to pay them back at an additional fee. The finance office isn't very useful. As a full-time student with bills to pay and only one working parent its not easy to make the bills and so a little bit of help would be nice from the financial aid office to give the students with a real need to get some help.

3 College Senior

Administration: The school is very equal in their strictness on students. Most of the policies are pretty straightforward and easy to follow.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: As a student that does not live up there I do not know what the housing situation would be for on-campus students.

3 College Senior

Local Area: The city is very nice but as a student not living on campus I don't know much of what is available at or around the campus

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.
