2 College Freshman

Diversity: There is minimal diversity here and it feels really weird, especially for someone like me who is from an area with lots of diversity. Everyone seems the same in terms of personality and appearance.

Campus Food: The dining hall food is pretty bad and choices are always limited. The vegetarian options are minimal and repetitive and there are few options for people who have dietary needs. The hours of the dining halls are also very inconvenient and limited.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's too far South for people to be politically correct and too far North for people to give any regard to Southern hospitality. The school is beautiful, but the people are very Greek-oriented and often very snobby.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's pretty big on campus, but it's definitely not weird if you choose to opt out. Guys who aren't in frats often have trouble getting into parties though.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Main Street is pretty nice, but that's all there is and it gets boring after a while. If you enjoy the excitement of a big city, Newark has little to offer you.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are not too prominent but they are definitely present. Most students drink and though no one will pressure you to drink, it's one of the main things students, especially underclassmen, will partake in.

4 College Freshman

Administration: As long as you're not acting outwardly stupid, you generally won't have a problem with campus or Newark police.

3 College Freshman

Technology: You must have your own laptop because so many assignments are completed/submitted digitally.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of options for off-campus dining on Main Street. There is plenty of variety and a lot of places that are open late and offer delivery.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Hard to get and its a big hassle

Guys & Girls: I'm in a relationship already so I don't care

Drug Safety: Once again I don't live on campus so I don't know

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I don't live on campus so I don't really know

3 College Freshman

Diversity: On campus there really isn't a representation of different ethnicities. However, in the Associates in Arts program in Wilmington there is much diversity among the students.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: SO MANY OPTIONS ON ONE CAMPUS.

4 College Junior

Transportation: If you're from Delaware and/or you have a car on campus, you're set.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: There are definitely certain groups that do it outwardly but don't get involved and you won't notice them.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I love it. The upperclassmen housing is great. I was considering moving back ON campus!

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are hot, no doubt.

There is a lot of housing available.

Overall Experience: I seriously love UD. Even though DE is a small state, we're close to the Jersey Shore, Philadelphia, Baltimore and less than 90 minutes away from the beach. Many of us head down there during the summer and rent a house or something.

3 College Junior

Administration: There was an I'm Schmacked event early on in the semester and 2 people were expelled, the Rugby team (party hosts) was forced to break until 2018. There were riots and fires, multiple arrests and many injured.

Do what you're supposed to and you won't have any issues, guys.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Life on campus is great. I can't stand people that drive up and down main street during the semesters though. There are a lot of students lots of pedestrians!

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: In academics, UD is excellent. We just got a new science lab this year and it's so beautiful!

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.
