4 College Freshman

Local Area: UD has the perfect college town. Not only is there so much to do on campus and on Main Street, but places outside of UD (malls, cities, etc.) are made very accessible by buses, trains, and student transportation systems.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I have met people of many different ethnicities and backgrounds at UD but there are mostly white people who attend. I don't see that as a negative thing but some people may. There are plenty of black people along with hispanic and other races.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of people smoke and drink but it isn't so much that it defies the school. There are over 18,000 undergraduates so there are bound to be some people who drink. If you don't want to be a part of that, it's okay. No one would treat you differently or try to make you feel awkward if that isn't what you're about.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you are looking for a Greek life that dominates campus life then you won't find that at the University of Delaware. The Greeks are regular students and are viewed as such. They only have to sacrifice a small amount in order to have a built in network of friends on campus.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The University of Delaware is a great school. The academics aren't tough enough that you will be overrun, however they aren't so easy that you won't be prepared for the real world. There are 100s of companies that focus on recruiting employees from our school before looking at other colleges.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Although I am only a freshmen, most if not all of the professors that I have had personally or even heard of have been excellent. The workload will prepare you for the real world and there are more options as far as possible areas of study go, than at many other universities.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: So far this semester, there's been 4-5 armed robberies and 1 death by shooting. The campus apparently feels much more safe than it is, but some areas are definitely better than others.

Campus Food: The food is horrible! Definitely the worst part about UD. A lot of the dining halls are different, and some are better than others. The staff is always very nice and friendly, but the food is dismal, although they do make a few decent things.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I've only ate o n campus a few times. The food is excellent.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I participated in the Corporate Sponsorship Agreement program this past semester and had a very difficult time with the process.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The caliber of students at UD's MBA program makes the classroom experience that much more enjoyable and intellectual.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: It offers flexible scheduling and small class sizes for graduate students.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: An Operations Management major is a very well put together program. I had doubts about the program, but the professors I have come into contact with are amazing and they care so much about their students. My career goal are to get my degree, get a job after college, and then advance my career by going back to school. My concern about finding a job in my field is if there will even be jobs available when i graduate.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: UD's campus life is not the most spirited and consists mostly of partying and football games being the most popular aspects.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug safety ad UD is not very big but it really all depends on what group of people you hang out with.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: All of the academic facilities and sports facilities are amazing, but the dorms are ridiculously small.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Great mid size college town that embraces the college students!

Health & Safety: The campus always feels safe but I'm uncomfortable with outsiders that can come in to use the safe college feel for crimes of opportunity on college students.the campus and local police always respond but even the can't be everywhere at all times.

Local Area: For me, Newark is the perfect college town. The two major requirements for me were a beautiful campus and fun town. The University of Delaware is like the heartbeat of Newark, everything caters to the university. Main street seems like it's part of campus. There are countless restaurants, bars and shops it's impossible not to find something to do. I love being able to grab a coffee on main street before class, run errands or grab lunch. The bars and restaurants are packed on weekends and even a lot of weeknights! What i also love is that just 10-15 minutes out of Newark is a huge beautiful mall where you can find virtually anything you could need.

Academics: I have been thoroughly impressed with this school so far. I came here for the business school and already as just a freshman I can tell how far it will take me. My first year business professor helped me see why I want to be in the business field and why UD is the place to be studying it. They offer so many different programs and events to help out students with everything from networking to deciding on a major.

Academics: So far I have really enjoyed the academic community here. Professors and advisers are always looking to help and it's nice being around a student body equally committed to learning.

Administration: We have the amnesty program which allows you to call for assistance if a friend has drank to much and not suffer any consequences. when cops come to parties they dont cite anyone at the parties really, they just ask you to leave.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I dont have a car with me but people do complain that permits are expensive

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Tons of bars. Mojos is crazy and has college nights on wednesdays. The parties are awesome and resemble what they look like in the typical college movies

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is literally bipolar. One day its 85 out and the next its 50 and raining.

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.
