The university of Delaware is an amazing school. The campus is beautiful and the people are somewhat friendly. There is a lot of ways to be active on campus. The dining hall food is pretty good and it sucks that only one of the dining halls offers "to go".

There is something for everyone at this school. Between the hundreds of clubs, 21 sports teams, and professors that go out of their way to make sure you understand the material, you are surrounded by amazing opportunities.
