5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am obsessed with UD. The school is medium sized, but with big school opportunities. There are so many opportunities to have an amazing college career and there are even more opportunities to get a job after college. Everyone here is social and friendly and just wants to make friends.

Campus Food: There are 5 dining halls around campus. Russell is definitely the best one, but the others are still good. Sometimes you get food thats undercooked or overcooked, but in that case you can file a complaint to the manager and they usually fix the problems. Regardless, it's college food. It will never be as good as home cooked meals.

Academics: I came to Delaware because it is very easy to double major and include minors. I am in the business school and because so many of our core classes overlap, double majoring is simple. It really only requires that you add on 5-7 extra classes as long as you stay within the same college.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm a business school student and I absolutely love everything about it. My teachers are all relatable and kind. Sometimes the courses are difficult, but in a good-challenging way! My teachers offer office hours and are always there and willing to answer any of my questions.

Parking: Parking is available for students, but it is hard to find spots around class areas so it's more efficient to walk to class. When it comes to permits, parking goes by seniority therefore as a freshman you won't get a spot close to your dorm. AKA totally not worth getting a permit.

Greek Life: Greek like is about 21% of the school. If you're in greek life it seems like it's a HUGE part of the university, but if you're not it isn't important. They do throw most of the parties on campus but you can usually get in as long as your ratio is good!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The police can suck sometimes because they especially like to ticket things like J-Walking. Otherwise, our campus is fairly lenient with visitors and have no gender restriction policy.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is good and they are of course known for parties. However they also throw other events and do community out reach which is great.

Transportation: Transportation at University of Delaware is great. Buses make constant stops and travel throughout the entire campus. They even have a late night shuttle bus. In addition if you do not want to walk alone on campus late at night, there is a number you can call and public safety will come pick you up.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off campus apartments located right next to the school with reasonable prices. The shuttle buses stop also there which is great!

Local Area: There is not much to do outside of the college town, but students here are extremely friendly and there is always something to do on campus.

Parking: There are close to no free-parking spaces and parking permits are ridiculously expensive.

Administration: Overly strict, especially post-I'm Schmacked. Still, Delaware has a great party scene. On the upside, if you're sickly drunk, a cop will find you and help you (you'll still get in trouble, but just with the school)

Off-Campus Dining: Newark is a great college town and offers a lot of alternative options to the dining halls. Main Street contains plenty of offerings-everything from Diners to Panera Bread.

Majors: I have been impressed with my school, particularly some of my fellow students who are also particularly career oriented. The facilities are impressive. Also, some of the student run groups are very organized and professional. Generally my teachers have been good but there are the occasional clowns that you'll get a class with.

Diversity: Racial diversity is marginal. The vast majority of student are white. The 2nd greatest presence are Asian students. I'd say the student body is pretty 50/50 on the political spectrum, but out of state students are usually conservative (probably because out of state tuition is so high, thus wealthier family can afford it)

Campus Housing: They are starting to build more dorms but need more options for upper class men housing besides the towers!

Majors: SO MANY CHOICES! There is something for everyone. If you cannot find a major at this school, I really doubt you will be able to anywhere!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am very proud to be going to UD. I believe the professors are awesome (on the most part). I am in the honors program which I highly recommend because class sizes are smaller, which gives you a chance to get to know your professors and peers.

Campus Housing: Russell is a great place to live as a freshman. Also, the school is constantly updating and building newer and better housing, which is definitely something to look forward to!

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of variety for off-campus dining. Main Street is basically on campus so it's extremely convenient. It is walking distance from almost any student residential area. During the first few weeks of school, people give out coupons for Main Street restaurants. Most restaurants aren't expensive at all.

Athletics: Honestly I do not know too much about this area. I'm not exactly a sports fan. However, UD has a large variety of sports team, both competitive and recreational. There is a lot of school spirit at games and there are spirit days where you can get free stuff for wearing school colors.

Weather: It rains pretty often. I have had to walk through pouring rain a few times before now. Though I was recently reminded of this because it poured yesterday. If I had taken this survey last week I may have given a better grade.

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.
