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

3 College Junior

Weather: The rain is very annoying because it rains a lot. It also snows a lot in winter which also is annoying to walk to class

Transportation: Parking is horrible at school. The permits are way too expensive. Everything is a meter and it's not worth it to drive anywhere. If you don't have a driveway, its not worth it to bring a car.

Parking: Parking permits are ridiculously expensive and ever lot is still at least 10 minutes away.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I absolutely HATED going to the dinning hall. Convenient, but not worth it

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus feels pretty safe, but walking across campus alone at night is definitely not advised.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The chemistry department is absolutely amazing and the professors are one of a kind.

Guys & Girls: Everyone is super nice and I have made a lot of great friends.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: considering UD is a large state school, they do not have a plethora of majors. I found myself creating my own program so that i could pull from different disciplines.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: not bad...some courses are very challenging, but the professors are there to support you in studies

Local Area: everyone is soooo friendly, it is an awesome atmosphere. the campsu is beautiful too

3 College Sophomore

Academics: the professors are hit or miss...some are excellent and others are average

3 College Freshman

Majors: The process of getting into the Engineering program is not difficult to apply for, maybe an extra essay or short paragraph, but it is a hard program to get into. The Engineering program has a limit on how many students they take, and they typically accept students who have taken hard courses and received good grades. Once you are in, though, you are able to switch which type of engineering major you want to study pretty easily.

Campus Quality: University of Delaware's campus is exceptionally beautiful. The campus green looks straight out of a college ad, a perfect place to have a picnic or take a jog. The gyms and dining halls are conviently placed near residence halls so that students don't have to walk all the way across campus. There are a million places to eat and hang out, and the library is a perfect place to study. It seems like there are new events going on everyday!

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather at UD is usually nice and brisk in the fall and spring, not too cold and warm enough that you want to spend most of your time outside. Classes are far enough away that you get a good amount of exercise, but close enough that it isn't too much of a hassel when it's raining.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I am a freshman and I love the engineering program at the University of Delaware already. All the professors are very professional and intelligent and are sincere about creating engineers out of all of their students. There are plenty of opportunities for studying abroad, undergraduate research, and internships as long as you talk to your advisors and get in touch with the career counselors.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: social atmosphere is awesome! Everyone is friendly and eager to make friends. Dorm conditions are average for a college freshmen

5 College Freshman

Weather: we have all four seasons which is nice, plus we are home for two months for winter break which is during the coldest months. Therefor, you are not walking around campus in the freezing cold.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There is almost always open spots in the parking garages, but if not, finding parking spots can be difficult

4 College Freshman

Transportation: You can download the udel app onto your phone which will tell you exact pick up and drop off times for the bus. There is no cost and it is very helpful

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There has been a lot of violence recently including robberies at restaurants near freshmen dorms, freshmen getting jumped on their walks home right next to their dorms, and a shooting in an off campus apartment but UD text alerts go out ASAP as well as emails detailing the occurrances. The police are always out in their cars and on bikes and it just seems like some of these acts are out of their reach.

2 College Freshman

Majors: The process of getting into my Biomedical Engineering major was somewhat of a hassel. What happened was I applied into Engineering Undeclared, which was a mistake. The Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering programs are restricted majors, so it is harder to transfer into than to be accepted into from high school. If you are slightly interested at all in either of these two majors, I would suggest applying into them from high school and transferring out to a different type of engineering or major if you do not like it. This is much easier than the reverse.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It rains a lot in up in Newark. When it rains the campus can become very cold. The classes are relatively close to each other, so it is not so bad walking in the rain to class. Just make sure you carry an umbrella and you should be fine.

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.
