3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports aren't a huge deal. The football, soccer, and basketball games are fun to go to but don't expect us to win. Intramurals are really fun to get involved with though. I highly recommend joining at least one.

Overall Experience: I love UD the only downside for me is the 5-6 hour drive home.

Health & Safety: Students are very informed about any unsafe occurrences on campus. Blue light help boxes can be seen from nearly any area on campus. Lots of resources exist for both general health and counseling.

Overall Experience: Career services help students prepare for the "real world" in many ways, including websites, resume building, and interview skills. There are many opportunities for research, internships, and jobs.

Campus Housing: While expensive, I enjoy living in the dorms. The RA's are usually very friendly, bring the floor members together, and overall are helpful in many ways. Housing is clean and relatively spacious.

Greek Life: Many people talk about rushing, and there are a lot of members of the community who partake in Greek Life. I don't believe it dictates the agenda for everyone, and there are plenty of alternate things to do if you didn't want to join a sorority or fraternity.

Athletics: While sports are important to many people who attend, they don't dictate everyone's entire agenda. The facilities are very nice, and students are generally supportive of our teams.

Health & Safety: There is always campus police and they are always available 24/7. The health center is also always open incase someone needs assistance or has an emergency. Also, there is a fire station right next to campus and always seem to be responding, so that is reassuring. Also, the campus sends out alerts to let you know when there has been a crime on campus and so that you stay alert and safe. They will email and text you this information. You need to take an online course on alcohol and substance abuse which lasts about 2 hours at the most, and it in interactive but it really isn't that bad. The same goes for sexual assault and abuse. But that's about it, unless you get caught with contraband.

Overall Experience: You really learn a lot out of courses and professors. The class sizes vary and there are a lot of lectures but there are also discussions which has more of a classroom feel. Also, all professors are required to have office hours which is great. You will definitely make friends in class when you are trying to get study groups together. BEST PART ABOUT THE SCHOOL: It is puppy friendly. You can even raise a seeing-eye dog in your dorms. All the classrooms are dog friendly as well, unless you get the one professor who won't allow it. But most of the time, the dogs will go to class with you and walk around campus. It is great.

Overall Experience: The school really seems to care about your future and the career center is great. There are also a lot of career fairs throughout the semester which is good. Also, most colleges within the university encourage/require students to have outside experience whether that be an internship or study abroad. They really seem to care and are always willing to help.

Campus Housing: Housing is great. Most of the buildings are new, and it really feels like you are in a hotel. On campus apartments and suites are a little out of the way, but people who live there seem to love it. There are also buses to get you where you need to go in a timely fashion and they run frequently. I lived in an older dorm and I loved it. There is a great sense of community. And while there was no AC, it did encourage me and the roommate to open the door. This provided us with more chances to meet fellow floor mates. And now, most of my friends in Delaware live in my building, which is great and convenient. The dorms aren't the most spacious but we make it work and me and my roommate live comfortably. Also, my roommate is great. Housing really took time and consideration when matching roommates and I went random. I have had less problems than those who picked their own roommates and everyone I know who went random is happy with who they got. Every building has its own quiet study area and community area. RA's are on top of things and always available to you.

Greek Life: There is greek life everywhere. It is a big part of the school and there are some really hardcore people who love it. If you don't want to join though, there are plenty of other people you can meet and hang out with as well. The parties are a huge deal in this campus though.

Athletics: Everyone is encouraged to go to football games and get involved with sports. It is a great way to get free stuff. I am personally not a sports person, but I have gone to football games and it was great. The school also has a great gym which is available to all students. It is new too, so all the equipment is up to date and fully functional.

Overall Experience: I really love Delaware. Everyone is friendly and there is a great sense of community. The school gives you plenty of options of fun activities to do, and the party scene is great. The food is also A+ (we have fresh food delivered the morning it is made, and meal plan is swipe style - so basically one swipe to get into the dinning hall and then you have free reign to get all the food you want). The town is great and within walking distance even from the furthest dorm. So it is easy to get off campus dining and apartments. Teachers are great and most are very concerned with your success. They will stay and reteach material in office hours if you really need. The health center is open 24 hours. The communication between you and the school is great, too. If you need information, someone will get back to you within the day on average, as long as it's during work hours. The campus is beautiful and there is a lot of history with it (Delaware being the first state and all). You will definitely find the right group for you and there are plenty of clubs and organizations for you to get involved with. Also, gym membership is free, so it encourages you to avoid the freshman 15. Overall, I really love my school.

Athletics: If you are looking for a big time sports school Delaware is not it. Our athletics aren't the best and no one attends the games. Homecoming weekend isn't even pumped up for the football team, but instead for the dages that happen. If anything our club sports are better than varsity sports.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Delaware has everything to offer. It has so many clubs you can join and if you can't find one you like you can start your own! During the week you walk across a beautiful campus and are surrounded by classic brick buildings. When the weekend rolls around you can guarantee that you will find a party or an event on campus to attend.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health and Safety is pretty good.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UD was the best decision I ever made. Everyday has been spectacular. I have taken advantage of many of the opportunities on campus and haven't regretted any of them. I plan to make more moves on campus as I am eager to go back.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many employers find a degree from UD very promising.

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.
