3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Football team isn't really the main selling point of athletics. It actually seems like Lacrosse is the big sport at Delaware. Not so many people attend the games unfortunately.

Transportation: All the transportation is free as long as you are a student and buses run frequently throughout the day and night making it easy for anyone to get to the other side of campus with out walking far.

Guys & Girls: Every other girl you see seems to be a strong 7 therefore the campus is full of attractive girls who have a lot of personality and are really fun. They tend to dress up nice for class also which is nice.

5 College Freshman

Academics: It is so much fun. Workload is decent Facilities are awesome. Everyone is trying to help you get an internship.

5 College Freshman

Academics: A lot of diverse topics to study and we are encouraged to pursue them.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am a vegetarian and all around campus there are a decent amount of vegetarian options. Its really about knowing where to go when.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of fun things to do around campus and on main street.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most the dorms are rather old and a lot of others are under construction and renovation. Almost all buildings are in the process of being renovated.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is mostly football support along with the intramurals.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm only a freshman so I do not know much about this either. I know its available and runs at pretty decent prices

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am under aged and cannot go to bars so I really do not know.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol is abundant on campus because a lot of students view this as a "party" school.

3 College Freshman

Technology: My main issue is the fixed allotment of money for printing at the library especially because I have a class that requires me to print out and bring multiple sheets every week.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The majority of preppy girls go out and party every weekend. Guys can't get into parties unless they are with girls so there are more girls going out than guys generally.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are always police, in cars as well as on bikes, patrolling around.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love all the opportunities I'm offered around campus, especially for my major.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It wasn't especially difficult just wish there were more opportunities.

5 College Freshman

Weather: t does not impact it at all.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: This school is party heavy. Greek life is pretty big here on campus. It has a great atmosphere and there are many chances to meet a lot of cool people. I wish sports were actually a big deal here though. No one really attends games or anything like that beyond freshman year.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The new gym is extremely nice! The dorms and on campus housing could use some work, but they are building a lot of new things.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my school, but I don't know if I would still choose it. This was not my first choice to begin with. I would probably choose another school. Since I decided to go to this school that's what got me into the program that got me so behind that I ended up not going with the major I have been wanting to be in for as long as I can remember.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I don't really go to the bar. I have only been to two places, which were fairly close to my dorm. One place was a sports bar but also a restaurant and it was easy to get into since it wasn't just a bar. The other place was a karaoke place and had live bands that played there. I didn't go tot he bar at neither place because I don't drink. My friends did and they got carded but there was no cover charge. I bet there may be parties throughout the week but it seems to be mostly on weekends, but I don't do the party thing.

Weather: Depending on when you are up here sometimes it either seems like it is too cold or too hot. Especially now with the winter coming. You don't see people outside as much, unless they are going to class. It affects you because some days you don't want to leave out of your room, even if it is just to go to the dining hall. Depending on when you want to take the bus at these times they are packed. For some when school starts right after Summer it is to hot to walk to class, and as it gets closer to Winter it is to cold to ride the bus.

4 College Senior

Academics: As of right now I am a English major with a concentration of creative writing. I enjoy the major there are a lot of fun classes you can take, and there are some internship opportunities. They have workshops you can take like short story, poetry, and script writing, which can help you develop even the more.

Academics: One thing I like about it is there are a wide variety of courses and Majors and minors. The workload is difficult at times, but that is expected. You can study abroad which I really love and one day hope to do. For the most part the professors I have had were nice, but serious when it comes to work, participating, and succeeding in the class. Registration is easy as long as you know what it is you need to take next for what you are studying.

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.
