4 College Sophomore

Local Area: local atitude is great. everyone looking out for you. not much on local attractions, but area is close to wash,md,pa and 4 hours to ny.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Very strict on drinking in the dorms and parking in the wrong place. Also, a lot of noise in the dorm is not tolerated.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: network reliability is excellent. WIFI throughout . I have my own laptop and desk top computer. Copying is no problem.

2 College Senior

Parking: Parking for residents isn't too bad. The lots are within a reasonable distance from Dorms and classes. However it does cost an arm and a leg.

5 College Senior

Majors: I would do this again, and am looking forward to it.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of the people at UD take part in drugs, but also a lot of people don't. It all depends on who you hang out with and what type of person you are. I know people who take part in drugs, but they don't pressure me any kind of way.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Delaware has a great campus, and maine street is wonderful! Everything is a 10-15 minute walk away, so everything is so convenient! All my friends are so sweet and I love how involved I am. There is a club for everyone!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Nutirtion is a very intriguing but more difficult major. I love it because I love the topic but if you don't enjoy learning about food there is no way you will make it through all the science classes. Besides the science courses that are required the work load is very fair. I have been accepted to two internships so far and I am only a sophomore. Udel has a great reputation and the name alone can help you on your resume.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm pretty happy with my my major. I love all my major classes but some classes that I have to take like ECON and Management classes don't really make sense to me since I am a Nutrition major.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The process to obtaining a nutrition major was relatively easy. All I had to do was bring my class course objectives and prove to the advisor that this major was for me. If you are being honest with them and you really love what you want to do you should have no difficulty receiving the major you want.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I've only been a couple of times but i know that there is a Quiznos there and chick fil a also an Asian restaurant.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is great shopping and stores. Food places are great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are not perfect, but they are a good enough place to live. Delaware is building two brand new dorm buildings that will open next year, which will only increase the living standard.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports at Delaware are competitive, but it is not very popular for students to attend the games to cheer the athletes on.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Major sports such as football are fun to go to and are well attended, but the other sports are merely ok to spectate. There are a few gyms across campus, some near freshman dorms, and the quality of them is good.

1 College Junior

Administration: Campus and local police are very strict during homecoming tailgates. Do not go to a tailgate and drink if you are under 21. Otherwise don't be dumb and be aware of cops trying to stop parties

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: School has a good girl:guy ratio of about 60:40. Guys and girls are typical of what you would find in a (semi) large school.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Good bars and college town environment for those over 21.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: This school has a lot of white people, all coming from similar income levels. There is plenty of religious and sexual diversity, although there are a lot more girls than guys.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options for off-campus housing. The only problem is that some off-campus houses may seem unsafe, and you have to sign a lease fairly early into the year if you want a good location, safe house etc.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: only social scene is frat parties, lots of alcohol and people get wreckless, lots of alcohol poisoning and people going to the hospital. Little else to do other then party

2 College Freshman

Athletics: there is a lot of school spirit, however the sports scene specifically for football is lacking--everyone goes to games however usually after drinking and rarely if ever stay for the entire game, or pay attention to what's going on

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: living off campus is known to be less expensive, however finding housing off campus is easier said then done because leases need to be agreed and signed on as early as november for the following year

4 College Freshman

Academics: my professors have been available and willing to help for the most part, just so long as it is clear that i am putting in the time outside of class as well. psychology is a very big program. registering for classes is almost unbearable but you manage.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Organizational and Community leadership major is a GREAT program, i love everything about it and the adviser of the program is very helpful. Definitely able to make the most of the resources available

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.
