3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Some of the Greek housing is very nice, but mostly the houses are a little bit shabby. Also, the percentage of Greeks on campus is not the majority of the students, so it is not totally imperative to rush. The dues one has to pay to be involved are a little steep, but for some, that is worth it.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The internet connection on campus can be fickle/slow but that is rarely the case. Also there is a phone number you can call for tech support during certain hours and they help you with anything you are having issues with. Printing in the library is annoying because each page costs 5 cents and you only have 5 dollars to start with on your card for printing and you will likely finding yourself needing to print things often.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: They have so many restaurants to choose from right on Main Street. You could go have a fancy meal with the family or a quick snack with friends. There are some organic choices and many different cuisines. There are always discounts for students and I regularly get emails with a list of discounts for the week. Also, many of the pizza places are open very late.

2 College Freshman

Parking: It is very difficult to find a spot with a meter and parking enforcement is a little bit unreasonable because they give tickets left and right.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Not worth the high price

5 College Junior

Transportation: The busses are so convenient especially if you live far from classes! They come every 5 min and are FREE

4 College Junior

Technology: The wi-fi sometimes goes on and off but when it works it's really fast. Plus who doesn't have their own laptop nowadays...

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Typical white college girls basically

3 College Junior

Weather: I think in general the weather all around the country has been very bipolar.... typical East Coast weather with random hot days and random freezing days

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Everything's new and new things are constantly being built

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Plenty to do and plenty of places to be

5 College Junior

Athletics: The new gym is amazing!

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Main street is THE place to eat

Overall Experience: Besides the stuff talked about here, I love UD!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is so much cheaper than on-campus housing and most of the time the houses/apartments are closer than the dorms are to classes.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely there, but you don't have to join a fraternity/sorority to make friends.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drink if you want to, don't if you don't want to. Nothing is forced upon you by the student body.

3 College Junior

Administration: Campus safety will only get involved if they see you doing something wrong. Try to stay out of their way and they'll stay out of yours.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: have to fight for your right

Drug Safety: easy if you want it, but not noticeable if you done

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: easy to get to, cheap, varied

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There are usually a lot of parties on the weekends, especially at frat houses. They're okay, sometimes they're not too fun. And they are impossible to get into if you are a guy who is not in the frat. The bar scene is decent. There are a good number of bars on mainstreet, in walking distance from campus and the dorms. There is no cover charge for students if you show your student ID. They often have theme nights like karaoke, live music, djs, etc..

1 College Junior

Parking: Parking is ridiculous. The cost of parking permits are way too high, especially considering the location of the lots. Many of the lots are far away from the dorms. I had to purchase an expensive pass for a lot that is one mile from my dorm. It is not convenient at all. Also, you cant park anywhere without a permit, or in a lot not covered by your permit, or else you're almost guaranteed to get a ticket.

2 College Junior

Administration: The campus is extremely strict with parking, its a bit ridiculous. You must purchase an expensive parking pass if you would like to have your car on campus, and the lot that you must park it in could be very far from your dorm. I had to park my car a mile from my dorm, even though I was paying so much. One time I parked my car in front of my dorm to pack some things into my car, and my pass had fallen down and I immediately got a parking ticket. Attendance really depends on your class; for some, attendance is essential to pass the class, and in others it doesn't matter at all.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drinking is a huge thing at the University of Delaware. Many students take part, and there are parties going on a lot of the time, especially at frat houses. There are always cops around that break up parties and to try to catch you doing something stupid. Also, there are a good number of students that smoke marijuana at UD, as you hear many people talking about it. I've also heard a good number of students talking about them using adderall, especially during finals week.

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.
