1 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus is outrageously expensive. To park near your class, you need to get to campus early to find a metered spot which has a 2 hour parking limit. If you don't mind parking in the garage to get a spot, you will be paying $1.00/half hour.

4 College Senior

Majors: As a senior elementary education major, I am extremely impressed with the University of Delaware's program. I feel fully prepared to begin my career as a teacher. I have taken education classes since freshman year, fall semester. I am now graduating with a dual degree in elementary education and middle school mathematics.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Sometimes the weather isn't the nice (for example, cold and rainy), but there's nothing we can do about it! It might make walking to classes not as fun but there are also good days where the weather is amazing!

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: All of the professors I have had so far at UD have been excellent. They are very knowledgeable and care about their students. Some of my friends haven't been as lucky and wouldn't agree with my statement.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There isn't very much diversity at UD, most of the students are white and middle-class. Many are from the same area (Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Maryland).

Parking: There are many parking meters and parking garages all over campus so there are always places to park. Many of the meters are on Main Street.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is very fun but only about 3,000 people join it.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I haven't heard of many incidents of drug related crimes.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: There are a TON of cops in Newark, where UD is. They are usually pretty lenient on drunks on the street, but they WILL get you for jaywalking. NEVER JAYWALK!!

Scholarships: UD offers a program that offers an Associate of Arts degree, tuition free! I have almost completed the program, and have only paid minimal fees and for my books.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is moderately subtle, and no one is discriminated against if they never join a sorority or fraternity. Its mostly just everyone supporting each other in their likes and dislikes.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I think the campus is beautiful and exciting. There are many activities and organizations to get involved in and its a place where anyone can make a friend. Many of the dorms are located near Main Street, where there are many cute restaurants and shops.

Campus Food: There are many different dining halls on campus, some better than others. I am not a fan of the dining halls very much. I would usually just make a sandwich for lunch. I really like the Trabant center though because it offers sushi, pizza, salads, burgers and has a Chick-fil-a.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Every professor I have had so far is extremely knowledgeable in their field. The classes can sometimes be difficult but the professors want students to know and understand as much as possible for each class.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: University of Delaware offers many different majors. It was pretty easy getting into Biological Sciences. Even changing majors is not too difficult. Many students enter the University of Delaware undeclared for their major too.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I do not know much about parking on campus. There are a few big parking garages on campus that are not too difficult to park in. The meter parking spots on the side of the streets usually get filled rather quickly.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I love the University of Delaware campus. It is very beautiful all year round. Some teachers are better than others but they usually try to help with any questions you have. Some classes are very difficult and I spend a lot of time studying for the exams. My workload is not too large, only near exam times.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The UD shuttle busses run five days out of the week until 4 am. Also, with the UD Shuttle app, I can easily find out when the next shuttle bus will come, helping me get to class on time without having to walk the far distances.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Public transportation to Christianna Mall and other places like Wilmington are easy accessible from many parts of the campus. The shuttle bus also does a good job in transportation by running almost all the time and makes it a bit cumbersome to have a car when you can take the shuttle bus if you live off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of diverse restaurants on Main St. but they aren't that appealing when cost is a factor. They are in walkable distance because they are located in the middle of campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Main street cutting through campus gives flavor to the campus not on all campuses. There's lots of outdoor activities and there is a small city feel around Newark.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always something fun to do! If parties aren't your thing, the University always has events planned. There are movies in Trabant, improv troupes, a cappella groups, sports events, etc. Or you can go to main street for dinner, shopping, and frozen yogurt or just stay in and watch a movie with friends. There is never a dull night at UD!

3 College Junior

Party Scene: University of Delaware draws a big crowd, mostly being people who have recently turned 21. It can be crowded at times, but it's always good fun. There's not much for the under 21 crowd, I'm not big on house parties. You can walk everywhere you need to on Newark Main Street.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: There is always something to do at UD. The programming board plans things EVERY weekend. There is always a movie showing or a band playing. There will always be an event at at least one residence hall. Of course there are always parties, but you can definitely avoid them if you like. There are 2 student-run theatre companies, 2 improv troupes, half a dozen a cappella groups. You can always join a club and go to an event, whether its just for fun, fundraising, or helping others. You will not be bored!

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.
