3 College Freshman

Weather: It's temperate climate. Expect the seasonal weather changes. Beware of the pollen. Delaware is infamous for its pollen level.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in a frat, so my experience is nonexistent. But there is no hazing, so that's good.

4 College Freshman

Technology: As long as you're on campus, you'll have good wi-fi (it even rivals my home wi-fi). Computers are a must for classes, each class I had required a project or computer based assignment. The library is a great resource to use if you don't have a computer because you can borrow laptops and iPads, a lot technological equipment. But try to buy your own, if you can.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-Housing is very competitive. People usually start the fall semester of the previous year to get a house or apartment. It's really competitive from what I've heard.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Make sure to apply for scholarship consideration. UD gives great scholarships and financial aid to those who apply.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Facilities here at UD are great. They're updating the campus and a lot of the academic building experienced renovations in the early 2000s, so everything is updated very well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There's a lot to do on campus. The green is my favorite part on campus to relax and read a book.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus police are a great resource for students. They can be a bit overbearing at times, but from what I've heard, they understand that we are college students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's not the best here at UD, but maybe because I'm a native Delawarean. I often wonder if I made the right choice going here, and not some of the other schools I got into because the main reason I got here was the cost. However, my OOS friends are having the time of their lives here, and I honestly think college is what you make of it.

Off-Campus Dining: Main Street is littered with great places to eat no matter the dietary restrictions one may have. I try to eat there at least once a week; it's a nice break from the dining halls.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It's just like any other school.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Being a chemistry major here at UD is great! There are many opportunities for research and assistance from the faculty, but the courses can be challenging and a lot of the introductory courses are taught by cumbersome professors.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the newest residence hall, and it's great. But I've been to the other older residence halls and it's definitely going to be a step down for me next year. The not as updated residence halls do have the best social atmosphere, though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It gets boring after a while. The menu is repetitive and there aren't many options in the specific hall.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There's a lot to do if you look for it.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school administration is attempting to diversify its student body. But as a minority here, I often feel out of place and uncomfortable in situations around school. I didn't think I would have a problem regarding my ethnicity/sexual orientation here, but I do.

Overall Experience: I love my school and I am so happy that I chose to go here.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not always the best housing options and you have to complete the process fairly quick or you wont be able to find anything.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is no peer pressure and you dont have to do anything that you dont want to do.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: some of the food doesnt always taste good (aka- has no taste) and it isnt always hot.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The Equestrian team is the best team on campus and anyone and everyone should join!!!!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Dont know much about it, but from what I've heard it seems pretty awesome.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Lots of sporting events, clubs, and great places to go and hangout.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Very nice facilities, constantly under construction looking to improve all their technology.

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.
