Majors: Nursing is a great major but very competitive. Clinicals are all of senior year which is easier because you already completed the class work.

Parking: There is no free parking anywhere on campus. If you live in off campus housing you do not qualify for campus parking permits. Any open lots are metered and garages are $1 per half hour. Parking for students who live on campus is expensive and if you live on campus you pay the same no matter whether there is room in the close lot for you or if you have to park all the way down by the field house, which is about 2miles from everything else.

Majors: I like the Health Behavior Science program. My peers are nice and helpful as well as the faculty. The only reason I would redo it would be to do it sooner, because I took time off and also transferred, causing me to graduate years behind my scheduled graduation date. I feel like now days you have to go to grad school for everything. This major is less stressful and a good start for any health related graduate program.

Majors: There are many internship opportunities. Not all internships are paid. I have to do an internship for my major to graduate, whether it is paid or not. There are both full time and part time internship opportunities. My internship will be health related since I am in a major involved with health.

Majors: I'm in the College of Sciences, Health Behavior Science. The are some thing I like and don't like. There are some classes I'm not sure why I need. I like most of the instructors, some more than others. Everyone teaches different, but I feel like everyone in the program should have similar philosophies. My major dislike is the way my classes are offered. The fact that only select classes are offered during special sessions is causing me to push my graduation date back.

Drug Safety: Most of the people who smoke probably only do it because of peer pressure. Weed is definitely noticeable but not too overwhelming on campus.

Administration: Academic dishonesty is definitely VERY strict, as it should be. Drinking underage however is not always strict.

Weather: It can get pretty cold and windy across campus in the winter but the spring and summer time weather is gorgeous at UD!

Guys & Girls: Guys and ladies dress comfortable. Some dress stylish, while others laid back and chilled. People dress according to their style, likes and comfort. No one downs anyone for wearing something, because dress is a representation of who a person is or wants to become. First week or two, the campus was quiet. Newcomers trying to figure out where their classes were. Some people know each other from previous semesters or from high school. Not everyone who is registered for classes have actually made it on campus due to transfers, summer interns, special assignments, etc. Now that I am a month into the semester, a lot more talk on campus. Lots of people go to class in pairs. Some with their boyfriend or girlfriend, but mostly with a friend. About half listen to their Ipods while riding bikes, skateboard and the other walk. No one is really rude, but not overly friendly either. Probably due to the fact that we are still breaking into the semester. Study groups and more social activity will probably form 3/4 into the semester, when everyone is going to be scrambling around trying to make sure they get coursework complete and studying in for exams.

Academics: I have not had any papers or assignments that have been due just quite yet let alone exams or mid-terms but they are just around the corner. I have heard great things about the professors, classes and class work. So I am excited to experience it for myself.

Parking: I got a Red lot parking permit which was about $165. I park there and ride UD's shuttle bus to the center of the campus. Buses run every 7-10 minutes and drop me off in a very convenient location in the central spot known as "The Green" for classes. There are several other parking lots, garages, and parking meters. I am happy with the security officers that patrol the area to ensure no break-ins and /or accidents. I feel safe from walking from the parking locations to other places on campus or walking/waiting for the bus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: As of right now, I am taking some general classes that I need for my major. I am not actually taking any engineering courses at this time. However, I have seen some of the workshops, labs, classrooms and I am looking forward to actually taking engineering classes. Those in charge of the engineering departments and teachers seem really nice and seem really sharp from my interactions with them.

Party Scene: I do not actually live on campus. I commute everyday. However, there have already been some careless actions reported by UD students at night and on weekends in Newark, DE. The actions were definitely not acceptable.UD, unfortunately has a bad representation for partying. I do not see any of this at all, since I commute and I attend classes during the day, however.

Weather: The weather in Delaware is fairly mild. It has had some days around mid 80s from end of August through this present month of September. Some days its a little too humid for me, but it doesn't last consecutively more than 3 days. Weather right now is a little mixed. Some days are warmer and some days are a little cooler. Fall time generally in this area is very beautiful with changing leaves on the trees (red, orange, yellow). Usually fall weather is very nice. A little breeze in the high 60s and 70s. A little snow in the winter and around 30 degrees. Occasional snow falls of a foot or two and icy conditions.

Scholarships: Out-of-state tuition is very expensive ( about $16,500) per semester. It is more than double of that of in-state tuition. I still need funding to pay for this semester. Tuition at UD has increased alot since I looked at it 2 years ago. I am still in need of $2400 be it loan, scholarship, grant, etc. Financial aid representatives have been helping me find more solutions to funding this semester's costs though. University of Delaware, as far as I know, does not offer any scholarships.

Campus Food: Dining is a great option. They have a variety of different things and all of the nutrition facts are posted online. The dining halls are all you can eat with one swipe, so it is nice that you can get whatever you want. If you don't like something you can go get something else. There is always a salad bar which was fresh and good.

Weather: When it's hot, it's really hot and when it's cold it's really cold. The weather changes a lot and it rains very often. It is nice having all 4 seasons at school.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: You are completely on your own for off campus housing. If you want to live off campus junior year you need to apply for housing at the beginning of sophomore year. Places have limited spots and that is why you need to apply early. It is a hassle but worth it in the end.

Administration: The police are very strict about underage drinking and drug use. Police are up tight about the littlest things. Jay walking results in a 65 dollar ticket.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There have been many incidents like robberies and some shootings. Be smart. Don't walk alone at night, lock your doors, etc.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is not allowed and is not visible outside. However, inside is another issue. Your not allowed to have it in the dorm but it flows freely. Drunk students are tolerated on and off campus. Drugs are not quite so popular.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: This year the thermostat in my dorm room actually works. A big plus for me. I am a junior. Upperclassmen dorms are better than freshmen. They get the older ones which are smaller and in need of repair. I have had no problem getting the dorm I wanted. This year, my friends and I occupy one half of all the suites on a dorm floor. I really like it.

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.
