2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Housing is moderately expensive about 8000 $ a semester. there are very few choices that are nice safe places to live and the few choices there are are hard to find. also the campus is so large off campus housing is night super close

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Every time I went to the health services I had an easy experience. Safety is good as well when you need it.

4 College Junior

Weather: Basic eastern weather. All seasons , no extremes in either season.

4 College Junior

Academics: Academics are great. Huge alumni base and great name backing it up.

3 College Junior

Parking: Average parking. Some close to where you want to be and others no where close.

4 College Junior

Majors: Many different majors here. Tough classes but if one works hard you will be fine.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most buildings and rooms are newish and nice. Social life is great.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many options and so many different kinds of options, all super close to campus. However, they're a little expensive.

4 College Junior

Technology: wi-fi is great and there's so many computer and printing stations around campus!

4 College Junior

Local Area: There's sooo much to do every single day! Students here are so beyond friendly and involved!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Newark is an average sized town- not too big and not too small. A popular place where college students prefer to hang out is Main Street which offers a variety of restaurants and small stores that fulfill any need. There are crimes that occur in the town, mostly robberies. One just has to make sure to not go out alone late at night.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are different races and religions, but it's a small proportion of the University. There are several ethnic clubs, but most of the population is white. However, most of these clubs are trying really hard to promote cultural diversity on campus and to raise awareness of the richness of other cultures, and the University has also taken initiative to raise cultural awareness. There is a lot of diversity as far as sexual orientation, and from what I have seen most people are very accepting and interested in learning and raising community awareness.

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of restaurants on Main Street that are affordable and a quick walk from anywhere on campus. It's fun to go out to dinner sometimes with friends and there's a good social scene (live music, etc.) as well. One thing that is sometimes inconvenient is that a lot of things close pretty early.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The academic programs (from my own personal experiences in the College of Agriculture) really prepare you for graduate school or for the work force. Students come back and tell us that the education we are getting is preparing us really well. There are lots of extracurricular activities available for every interest and there are opportunities within the college and university to work on campus and get even more experience. There is really something for everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Many people seem to be confused when they talk about this; there is much more than just metered parking on campus.
Parking passes can range from about $140 - $690 for full time for students (night/weekend parking starts at $70). You really don't need a car if you live on campus, and prices for students who live on campus are certainly higher, but there is, again, no real need for a car if you're not commuting.
That being said, there are almost always spots - I have only had trouble finding a spot twice, and that was during a career fair at the Bob Carpenter Centre, which shares a parking lot with the regular "red" (undergrad commuter) lot.
Shuttles take you from red lots right to campus, and it's sometimes a pain waiting for them, but those with a red pass can park closer to campus after 5pm and on weekends.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police can be really helpful as long as you are cooperative. If you're blatantly guilty of something you are way better off listening to them and they'll go easier on you. There is some crime mainly people having their phones stolen from them late at night.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are a lot of good places to go and eat that are relatively inexpensive. As far as nightlife most people go to house parties, but there are bars that 21+ students go to.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I have little experience parking at the University of Delaware, but parking is relatively simple. However it is expensive at about $500 per semester for a car, and a semester long pass can leave you far from your classes.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: UD has so many dining halls, you could either go to one closest to you or walk across campus to go to a different one to try something new. Not all the dining halls are the same. Sometimes they have different eating events for different days and not every one serves the same thing on the same day. There are also two student centers with various restaurants you could choose from as well as snacks if you're on the go. It's a great place to eat.

5 College Senior

Technology: There are many computers available for use around campus. The network connectivity is ridiculous and fast. It almost never slows down unless you're in a class of one hundred students and everyone tries to connect at once but that's nothing unusual. There are a few places to print on campus, a few of them are free but you have to search for them or know a few people. But you'll never have a problem connecting as soon as you're campus, and even a few of the buses too.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I've received a decent sized financial aid, but the forms and obstacles the UD staff give you can be quite disconcerting.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Personally I haven't gone to a UD football game yet, but from what I've seen and heard our football crowd gets very hectic.

3 College Senior

Parking: There are multiple parking lots, but the ones closest to classes are generally filled up the fastest. If you have to park in the farthest parking lot, you're going to have to take the a bus that comes every 15 minutes or so to get to your classes.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: It's relatively safe on campus since a lot of kids go out to party at night, but there is the occasional theft that happens every once in a while.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Newark is pretty safe on campus, however once you start to leave the campus it gets a little sketchy at times. Several crime alerts are sent out through emails about robberies and assaults on people in the nearby areas, sometimes really close to campus. But in general I feel extremely safe for the most part. There are safety button stations scattered everywhere and buses that don't charge for on campus traveling. If your a girl and its very late at night, maybe choose to not walk alone just to be safe.

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.
