4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We're right on main street of newark and there are so many different restaurants. When the dining hall doesn't have anything you want you can always got to main street and find something! it's right in the middle of campus and there's anything you could think of.

Drug Safety: They make us take the alcohol edu survey during freshman year which gives people knowledge of drinking/partying. I haven't seen any hardcore drugs but I know people smoke weed, otherwise I think alcohol is the main drug of choice for most people.

3 College Freshman

Technology: There are plenty of computer labs on campus, along with a lot of computers in the library. At these labs you can use the printers but you do have to pay .05 cents a page, but each year you get $5.00 to print which is a lot more than you'd think. There's WIFI almost everywhere which is awesome because you can bring your computer to class to take notes, or sit outside and do work. I do think having a laptop is useful and a printer isn't necessary but is nice when you don't want to walk to the library.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: We have a lot of dining options on campus. Not only do we have a lot of dining halls and student centers, but if you actually want to go out to eat we have a TON of options on Main St. That's one of the great things about being located in downtown Newark.

Transportation: The UD shuttle is completely free and is really convenient if you live on certain parts of campus. Yet, for football games they're rarely running and if they are, they're packed. Also, sometimes the walk from your location to the closest bus stop could be 10 minutes.
Amtrak is about a .8 mile walk and there are three megabuses that run daily. Amtrak is convenient yet expensive, and megabus is cheap yet inconvenient.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: the green is a gathering spot. lots of activities and clubs, 2 student centers,huge library, football is big here.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: take the bus, very convenient and cheap. I walk all over campus. Main street runs through campus, thats where all the shops and restaurants are. The train station is also very close.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone that I've gotten to know has been really nice and I've made some great friendships. Overall while walking around campus I can't help but notice that everyone looks pretty much the same. I'm used to more variety in style and appearance from my high school. I'm also not in to Greek life which is really big on campus.

Parking: I don't have my own car on campus but my friends that do and my parents always seem to be able to find spaces to park. I was surprised that one friend of mine even got a permit mid semester as a freshman. We usually have to walk a ways to the parking areas but that's to be expected on a big campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Typical mid atlantic weather. Always seems to rain on Tuesday! Not enough snow to cancel class.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are a lot of computer labs around campus. Sometimes they are crowded and sometimes they are not! If you can find a spot in one you can usually find space in another. WiFi is extremely accessible on campus. Most students have there own printer but also use the schools printers. Each semester $5 is allocated on your ID card for printing.

3 College Junior

Administration: They are fairly strict especially for drinking and drug use.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: I really loved everything about University of Delaware. The small community and town atmosphere made it an easy transition for me. Everything became familiar in a matter of time. The staff is very helpful and the professors are wonderful. Everyone seems to have a great deal of pride associated with the school. The only thing I would add to make the school better is a more health science opportunities; which they have actually begun to do. They have started to build a brand new state of the art health science campus all devoted to students who are pursuing respective careers. The school also has amazing associations with world renowned institutions in Philadelphia to further help students pursuing a degree in health.

Weather: Rainy winters (I prefer snow), and it gets unexpectedly humid in the summer. But the spring and fall are so beautiful!

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Great main street area with lots of restaurants and bars, but everything shuts down at 1 am. On a weekend, that's a real downer and it means you might go to sketchy house parties instead of a safer bar. It's not safe to walk alone at night in many areas off-campus, so you need a car or a friend with one.

Campus Quality: On a nice day, White Clay Creek is the best place to walk, jog, ride bike, etc.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics on this campus is about medium. The popular sports teams have a student following to support them, and most students have UD paraphernalia, such as sweatshirts and stickers for their cars. Depending on game there normally isn't a problem with tickets being sold out unless arrival game or playoffs/tournament (Basketball/football).

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus life has allowed me to meet and network with so many people at UDEL. It has created opportunities such as jobs, internships, and access to resources needed for academic success.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus dining is average. There are four dining halls on campus and two student centers. There is always a vegetarian option. If you get bored of the dining halls you can go to popular fast food restaurants at the student centers. Meal plans vary greatly, but you always have a certain number of meals and also a certain number of flex dollars which you can spend at student centers and the mini-marts on campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I declared when I submitted my application to the school. Then I started as an English major my first fall semester and was placed into two English classes. The major is relatively flexible and you can make many choices throughout the degree including when you want to take certain classes and what type of classes you would like to take.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I plan you have an internship my junior year because it is requirement for my major. I think it is great that Delaware requires internships because that is what really will help students in the real world. I know many of my friends have benefited from internships and have received job offers.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are easily accessible and really want their students to succeed. Additionally, there are networking nights and career fairs to help students find future employers. The chemical engineering and physical therapy departments are very popular and some of the best in the country.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm in the English department, and I really like it so far. The professors are easy to talk to, there are a lot of classes offered, and many concentrations so I can do exactly what I want to. The concentrations include professional writing, creative writing, ethics, literature, film, and theater. There is a department literary magazine as well as other newspapers to write for on campus. Additionally, and internship is required for my major. There are also study abroad programs specific to my major. Classes are usually discussion based and very interesting.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't qualify for any financial aid, so I am not receiving anything in that department. However, I am on a very decent scholarship, and it is very easy to simply apply it to my payment at the beginning of the semester.

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.
