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!

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.

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!

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: UD offers a GREAT variety of options for field of study, personalities and opportunities. You can study almost anything, or if you can't find a major, you can follow the Deans Scholar program and create one, you can join just about any kind of club, or create one of your own under the encouragement of plenty of staff members. And honestly - the people are just so nice!

Transportation: Around campus, A+... you can get a bus to anywhere, at just about any time. Getting somewhere else is where UD looses some points. There is a SEPTA station right on campus, but travel options on the weekend greatly diminish. There are, however, always bus trips going on to Philly, NY and the mountains. You can always get to where you want to go!

Academics: Great majors in almost everything . Basically all the professors are decent and willing to help . Many study groups and tutoring options .

Parking: There are places to park but if you park alot it gets expensive

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Great sports, facilities, and athletic trainers to help out athletes. They also have alot of programs to help athletes academically

3 College Freshman

Technology: There are a good amount of them in the library but the cost for color printing is expensive. they also have a multimedia center for bigger projects

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's normally pretty good but some days can be very rainy

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: UDel is your quintessential college experience. The buildings are beautiful, school spirit is high, there is always something to do, academics are strong, and everyone here absolutely loves it.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Main Street has so many options! Each year more and more variety appears.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek Life can be a great experience for those who choose to do it. It gets you a lot more involved in the campus community and introduces you to a lot of people you would not have gotten to know otherwise. Greek Week and Homecoming are two of the best weeks of the year.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I did receive some financial aid but I did so without any help from an advisor. Depending on your major and advisor, more or less information on scholarship opportunities may be available. Many times you may have to look for opportunities that suit you by yourself.

Guys & Girls: There are all kinds of guys and girls on campus. Preps, jocks, redneck and country, hipsters, dudes and dudettes, geeks, etc. Looks range but usually most people are average to attractive.

Campus Food: There are plenty of on campus and off campus dining options. The off campus options are varied and within walking distance. However, I sometimes wish there were more varied restaurant options without having to drive. The on campus dining options can sometimes be a little overpriced. Even so, there are plenty of dining plans. The supermarkets are also on the far edges of campus but can have good sales. Furthermore, ordering food from restaurants off campus is incredibly convenient.

Transportation: The transportation could be expanded with more stops, however every bus does stop at the heart of campus, so if you ever jump on the wrong one, you can always get off there.

2 College Junior

Weather: It can get snowy and icy here for a few months, and in the summer the humidity can be terrible. But you get all four seasons, which is nice.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Nightlife is for all ages and types, although drinking is usually involved. You can always find a party or bar that isn't too crowded, but sometimes you have to really look. The biggest problem is the local police cracking down in manners many have pointed out as unconstitutional (for example, "noise violations", when the noise cannot be proven or unproven, often include an officer attempting to enter the residence).

4 College Junior

Academics: Delaware offers a ton of different majors, many of which have received high ratings from organizations that compare public university degrees.

Academics: Major: History. Delaware has a highly rated History Department, and Monroe Hall was renovated in 2008 and is spectacular. The professors have been easy to communicate with and are open minded. One drawback is almost all of the classes are large lecture-based, but I feel this is normal for History majors anywhere.

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.
