4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial Aid went smoothly...just make sure you really call over and over again. Do not be shy. If you are a strong student and express your need they will give you some money they originally didnt.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Delaware is HUGE on athletics. When it comes to sports like football and basketball, it gets tons of support. There is so much pride on campus. Other than those there is also club and intramural sports. There are different levels in each whether you just want to practice once a week or every single day. There is almost every sport you can think of or if it's not available, you can start one. I've never even heard of ultimate frisbee until i got to the university.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus food is okay. There are some really great options outside of the dining halls and sometimes the dining hall food is good. Its college food so i wouldn't expect it to be 4 stars but you have to make it work. There are four dining halls that you can go to : rodney, kent, pencader and russell. Those take swipes/meal points. Outside of those four there are other places you can eat and those are trabant, perkins and the pod. In these locations you would use points or flex.

5 College Freshman

Technology: Most of the high quality and new computers are in the library. Not sure how long the wait is during "rush hour", however.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Was difficult for me to understand how to get things done, but I was a freshman and that is only to be expected.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The large majority of dorms are beautiful. But, that does not mean if you don't get a beautiful one you can't have a good time in the "lesser" ones. I would know, I live in one of the "lessers".

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is so many excellent choices in dining right near many of the dorm residences. Many if not all cultures are addressed on Main Street as well as in the near vicinity of the rest of Newark. Just depends what your taste is ;)

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Express route is good. On weekdays the buses dont run very late, or the routes are ridiculously long.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Frats get old after freshman year. Theres plenty of good bars though once you turn 21.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: George Read is the best. Dickinson and Rodney are the worst.

5 College Junior

Academics: The academics are very challenging but extremely relateable to the real world.

1 College Junior

Parking: The parking is way too expensive and there is not enough on campus parking for commuters who have night classes.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Mostly the weather is great with the exception of downpours and extreme snow.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Overall the school is very good as far as the ratings.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most people get along no matter what their situation is. There are always a those that are hard to get along with.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The gems in Newark are gems, and the rest are not so fantastic. Off-campus housing is swallowed up extremely quickly, and if you aren't one of the lucky ones to be actually responded to by a local landlord, good luck. That being said, there are an abundant number of places to live, but there's a giant rush come October to snag them, as virtually all upperclassmen live off campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining is great in Newark because Main Street is conveniently located so close to campus. There are a wide variety of restaurants that range from pizza, to take-out, to sit-down dining for special cassations. There are always great discounts for students that can be found in discount booklets available at the beginning of school. Also, the restaurants themselves have frequent discounts which help a college student who doesn't want to spend so much money on food.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: UD doesn't really offer too many scholarship when you apply. And although I never had problems with my fin. aid, a couple of friend told me that they had some difficulties, especially when some of their financial information got lost in the process.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather now days varies a lot. However as long as you check the weather report before heading out, you should be fine.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: There are many places to print on campus as long as you know where there are. As for the computers, Morris have a lot of good and fast working computers and you can also borrow laptops and other materials.And there are also computers at the computer lab in the Smith basement. However, they are usually crowded during times like finals.

In some places around the campus, there might not be good wireless connection, but it happens rarely, and if you want to print, you have to pay but your Id card should have $5 in it and if you use it up you can add more money.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many dining halls to choose from. There isn't much variety and the food is just average. I found myself wasting food because it looked aesthetically pleasing, but tasted horrible. I suggest getting the smallest meal plan possible because you will not use up all of your meals. The dining plans are a rip off and I found myself paying for food that was not worth the money that I was putting forth.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The University of Delaware's campus is aesthetically pleasing. The gyms are easily accessable. There are many activities and clubs available. Other than the long walks needed to get anywhere, I have no complaints.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been a few minor crimes but campus safety is very prompt with notifying us about them right away. As long as you don't walk alone at night or do anything stupid.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There are a number of ways to get around campus. I personally love walking, but for days when the weather is rather unpleasant, there are shuttles on campus that are free of charge. They are usually on time, but they can get overcrowded pretty quickly. Many students also get around using bicycles, skateboards, or long boards.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There are a lot of options at night. Either house parties, bars, or some clubs near the campus. Most places are in walking distance

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.
