4 College Junior

Majors: As an Exercise Science major internships give you a boost to your application to graduate schools. Doing internships give you an insight on the career you may or may not want to pursue. Internships for Exercise Science Majors are in such large amount since there is an unlimited amount of career pathways with a degree in Exercise Science.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid. I did receive a scholarship based on merit, though. It was not as much as I would have hoped for, but it definitely still helped. I suggest finding out as much as you can about scholarship opportunities from you college counselor.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have had one brief fashion internship for a vintage clothing company. I did not get paid in money, but rather in experience, which can be just as beneficial. I had to help out a photo shoots which involved dressing models, choosing clothes, organizing stock, and taking inventory. This was on the weekend usually and did not take up a large amount of time. I also work as a receptionist for a marketing company now about three days a week for 9 hours each day. I get paid about $8.50 an hour plus bonuses. I also worked with a wedding and event coordinator to set up an extravagant wedding celebration.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I became interested in Fashion Merchandising because I've always loved designing my own clothes, do-it-yourself projects, sewing, and shopping. My program specifically did not have an abnormal application process because I did not apply for Fashion and Apparel Design. When I applied, a great decision that I made was to discuss my love of fashion in my essay. I talked about how all of the aspects of myself and my personality mirror all the aspects of an outfit that I would put together. A challenge I encountered was taking the math placement test. Math is not my best subject so I was worried I would not measure up to the expected standards. I ended up doing well after some review and that challenge has been curbed.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I changed my major 5 times throughout freshman year, but the best thing about UD is how many different majors and programs there are available--over 120 i believe? my advisor was very helpful and now i'm confidently going down the B.S. in Accounting path still with possibility of law school in the future. I would advise new students to consider all their options and ask for advice from other older students and professors/advisors so you can really find out what you are interested in before making a decision about a major. one thing i hear about UD is that after sophomore year it can be tricky to change your major and still graduate on time.

Scholarships: Financial Aid is tough for out of state students at UD. I've just accepted the fact that I'm going to have student loans. ..for best results have your parents move to Delaware so you can claim residency ha ha

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Majority of UD's population is from the East Coast, but you'll find all types of students, the school is big enough where there are groups and clubs for everyone and although you might walk around and see lots of preppy white kids, the school is diverse enough and there's a significant international student population. i made friends with a girl from Trinidad in one of my classes. basically everyone at UD is nice and in just one year i've made so many amazing friends. The guys: either preppy/fratty, sporty, long-boarders, etc. The girls: preppy/sorority, smart, nice, party girls, sporty

Drug Safety: Alcohol is much more prevalent than drugs, but i've found that no one cares if you do or don't drink, everyone at UD is pretty laid-back and accepting of all students, so do your own thing whatever that may be and you'll find your niche of friends.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: UD definitely treats its athletes good I must say! honestly I only went to one football game my freshmen year, and I left at half-time. I personally didn't participate but im sure other students did. I do know for a fact that our football team is d1 and the school does treat all athlete no matter what sport well.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: UD is all about parties! We find any excuse to have a party or dage ( day drink). sometimes it sucks if you are not apart of a club-sport or frat ( they usually throw the parties) if you are not a girl, but I like to think of getting into a party as an exact science! ratio helps, timing is everything, and money is a must ( if you are a guy). even if you are not a girl, or in a frat it is possible to go to parties and get in. the fact that UD has lots of parties I give it an A. However, it is a little tricky for guys who are not apart of greek like! then again all that changes once you hit 21, then everything is good.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There is a very long list of majors and minors, although there is no architecture major which I might have found interesting to explore.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people are dressed nicely, especially the frat/sorority members. Almost everyone is very friendly and will make conversation with almost anyone.

Technology: There are several computer labs on campus with a good amount of iMacs, some with sunray terminals which are good for computer science classes, and some with dells that are good for all types of work.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is very big on campus. While sorority girls and frat guys are almost always annoying and have a reputation for being some of the less bright people on campus, if that's what you're looking for than University of Delaware is probably a very good place to look.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food in the dining halls is often badly prepared or low quality. I personally don't think it's the best value, but for someone who eats much more than me it might be worth it because they are all you can eat. The markets near each dining hall are very convenient for when you want a late night snack. The food court in Trabant is also one of my favorite places to eat on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My specific program is Finance and International Business and we have a growing business school that has great professors and a great curriculum.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school does not give out a lot of financial aid and scholarships are hard to obtain.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Alot of students hookup because there is a big party culture. The frat boys are very attractive but have a reputation of not being the nicest.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are alot of transportation options such as Amtrak, Greyhound buses and the new MegaBus. We are near major cities so there is adequate transportation available.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: While I personally have never had issues with safety, we students are always receiving reports of robberies and muggings and it is very disconcerting when you get them. Also, security in the dorms could be stepped up; towards the end of this year there was a stranger in Smyth Hal (where I was living) and apparently he'd been on something. He was harmless, and he was escorted from the building by RA's, but still.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: At UD, the art department works in an interesting way. When applying, to the school, first you must apply to UD itself. If you get in, then you must submit a portfolio of 15 pieces to be considered for the art department. When you get in, you are in the BA program for Art. You spend Freshman year in the BA program receiving a solid foundations "boot camp" (which is very grueling, let me tell you). Then, in the Spring of your Freshman year, you create a new portfolio from all the projects you've worked on while at school and apply either to Visual Communications or Fine Arts, both of which are BFA programs. Or, you can choose to stay in the BA program.

College Sophomore

Majors: I am only a Freshman, soon to be Sophomore, so I haven't had a lot of experience with the internships for our program. I do know that all seniors in the program are involved in one, so that's a good thing. And I do know they do actual work, and are involved with projects at whatever company or office they are placed in.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm part of the College of Arts & Sciences, and while some people may complain about the breadth requirements, I think they're a wonderful idea. They are a great way to keep a balanced education and keep your schedule from being too lab-heavy or studio-heavy. The instructors for my major, Visual Communications, are wonderful and are active members in the art community. They know what they are talking about and the projects they design for us are interesting and non-restrictive.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid was a bit of a hassle, but I was able to receive some help. Not as much as I would have liked considering my SAT scores but still I was happy to have been acknowledged for the work I've done.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There is no real process other than completing chem and bio

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.
