3 College Freshman

Weather: In the beginning of the year, it's very warm. Even in December, there are days where it is 50 or 60 degrees. Rain is the worst part about Delaware, and it's bound to torrentially downpour about once a week. Other than that, the weather is pretty bearable. Outside of the rain, it gets fairly windy, but it's nothing that is impossible to deal with.

Campus Housing: North (Laird Campus) has the nicest and newest dorms available to students. George Read North/South, James Smith, Thomas McKean, and Independence East/West are all very similar and nice. Rodney and Dickinson are two freshmen dorms where socializing is great, but the conditions are very inconvenient to live in.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties happen very often, almost too often. It's definitely a trap for incoming students, because you really need to balance the partying and your studies. However, if you're looking for a fun school with something to do 90% or more of the time, UD is the place to be. Both the guys and girls are attractive, and it's a great school for social life.

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many different types of restaurants, both local restaurants and chain restaurants that even the pickiest eater can find something good to eat on almost any given occasion.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus right now, but I was a lucky one. I got a really nice house for cheap. Most people pay lots of money for a mediocre house. And it is very hard to find.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not big into sports, and I don't see or hear a lot about them around campus. But the football games are a huge thing to go to on weekends.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I will mostly eat off campus. There is a ton of varieties and a lot of them are located on the main street of the University. And the cost isn't too bad for a college student

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The facilities around campus are very numerous. I enjoy finding out about all the cool new buildings and places to see. Everyday i can find a new place to go to.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The campus has many beautiful green spaces to relax or play sports. there are also many sports facilities such as football, or soccor, or even ice skating.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I really enjoy my major. It is a lot of kids who know that they need to work hard and are willing to do that, yet still have fun.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The UD shuttles are always driving around and they have an app you can get that tells you where each bus is and where its going.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: I hate the parking at UD. You can never find anywhere free to park, and even when you do find a spot that is free, you somehow end up with a parking ticket. I have had 5 tickets just in my fall semester.

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus yet, but I have been to many dorms and talked with many of my friends and what I can ell it is great.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics at UD are pretty difficult, but they work hard to make sure you learn. It's not a college where you can slack and do weel. Youi actually have to work to get your degree, and the teachers are always willing to give you extra help outside of class if you are struggling.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not involved in greek life, but lots of people tell me its great

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is not a wide variety of places to g to near the campus, and all of the options are located in the same area.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It can be expensive depending where you go, but generally it's worth the money wherever you go.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's a hustle and bustle area. Lots of restaurants and you can get everywhere by walking.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: At the meters, it's twenty-five cents for 12 minutes. The police officers will sit there and wait until the meter runs out to give you a ticket. WATCH OUT.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UD reminds me of home, which helps when I'm homesick. It's not too far from home but far enough. There's plenty of places to go if you don't want to be in your dorm. There are so many opportunities to get academic help and succeed.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not too strict. Don't be stupid and you'll be fine.

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.
