5 College Sophomore

Majors: An Easy Transition – After my first semester, it became obvious that I was in need of a change. My head was in one direction but my heart was in another. As much as I tried to deny it, being a teacher was my true passion. I sought help with an Education advisor and she took the time to explain what I needed to do, step by step. She encouraged me to stay in touch and return with any questions or concerns. With the exception of one class I smoothly was able to transition into my new major by my second semester. As of this September I will be declared as an Education major and truly believe that thanks to the knowledge and helpfulness of my advisor, this transition turned out to be a very smooth process.

Academics: Not Enough Experience – A recently changed my major to Economic Education. I have not been involved in this major long enough to give an opinion.

Local Area: My Home Away from Home – Staff and students are friendly and helpful. Security is top-notch and I always feel comfortable and safe. The school area is very well kept and the landscaping is beautiful. Local businesses are school friendly and support the students. Students are very respectful to the local residents and in turn the local residents are very neighborly. To date, my college experience certainly feels like "my home away from home.

Majors: I enjoy being a Psychology major because the professors love waht they teach. I do not have a specific are of concentration yet. The workload is managable if you follow the crriculum.

Academics: Good Classes, Average Help – Academics are intricate. So many majors to choose from. The faculty advisors, however, were not as helpful as an incoming transfer student as I had hoped and needed.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Newark is a small town with a large number of college students. There are always people out and about and never a dull moment. Main Street is full of restaurants, bars and shops. It is easygoing and nonjudgmental

Off-Campus Dining: Newark Deli and Bagel – The best place to check out is Newark Deli and Bagel. They offer the best breakfast and lunch sandwiches I have ever had!

Party Scene: Not Sure – From my perspective, I have been told different opinions. My dorm is very social, so we like to hang together.

College Freshman

Academics: I have not started my first semester yet, but my courseload is reasonable, considering the difficulty of my major. There is a lot of hands-on experience and the teachers are extremely qualified. The University of Delaware is a beautiful school that is giving me great potential.

Campus Food: Typical Dining Hall Food – Although the University of Delaware is always attempting to improve the dining hall experience, the food leaves much to be desired. There are good and bad days, and the quality always decreases around holidays when they try to get rid of all the random food items left over.

4 College Senior

Academics: The University of Delaware strives to create the best possible study atmosphere for students, especially around exam times. There are so many places designated for studying, there is always a quiet place to go near by.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Students who participate in Greek Like at the University of Delaware are a minority. There are a good amount of Greek activities, and they are usually fun. However, it doesn't really matter whether or not you decide to join a sorority or fraternity

4 College Junior

Academics: Communications Major – It's great to be in a specific major. It is like you have a path to follow. You meet a lot of the same people and can do more study sessions.

3 College Junior

Academics: Choose Wisely – The University of Delaware offers amazing core classes for each individual major, but the additional requirements are a toss-up. Many classes I have taken for breadth requirements are not as engaging, and some are outright terrible, but there are shining stars. However, one common thread is that no professor will limit your opportunity to be successful, and they will make efforts to help if you request it.

4 College Junior

Administration: The University of Delaware are very strict on their policies regarding social life in the dorm and academics. As far as academics, students are not allowed to gain too many deficit points before expulsion. with social life in the dorm.. visitor are not allowed to stay for more than 10days.

Off-Campus Housing: Studio Green is an apartment complex affiliated with the University of Delaware. It is on one of the main roads of UD and is about 10minutes in walking distance from the main campus. They offer study rooms, a pool and an entertainment center. I hear the pricing is not as bad either.

5 College Junior

Academics: Early Childhood Education – It is a wonderful opportunity and a blessing to be with the Education Program at the University of Delaware. This past semester I had the opportunity to serve as a temporary teacher in one of the schools on campus. I had the opportunity to work with the age group in which I am interested as well as children with special needs. I myself was overwhelmed with joy by the way the teachers handled the children and the encouragement and advice that was given to me as a prospect.

Campus Housing: Living on-Campus Is Very Convenient. Upperclassmen dorms are definitely nicer than most freshman dorms. However, all students benefit from four great dining halls. Living in close proximity to the Morris Library, Trabant University Center, and the Perkins Student Center is awesome!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I initially wanted to go to Penn State because I love that big state feel. Delaware is a mini version and is perfect. There is a lot of school spirit and partying but it is also a very academic state school. Every single class is a challenge, but there are many resources given to students to insure success. The campus isn't too large, so you can walk or take a shuttle anywhere but there is also a large amount of students that attend. I love it!

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Mostly Alcohol, but Some Other Drugs – Most students at delaware drink every day of the week. If students get caught underage drinking then they have to pay pretty hefty fines and attend classes. Other popular drugs are marijuana. I have heard of some students doing things like ecstasy, however.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Most of the faculty at Delaware are eager to help whether they are professors, dean's assistants, or teaching assistants. There are many free resources available for studying and getting ready for the real world after college. Also, I cam to the University of Delaware for their excellent science and research programs. Their labs and materials are new and their is ample research opportunity for all students.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Newark, DE – There's a lot of stuff to do around campus but after 3 months it all kinda becomes routine. If you want to find other things to do you may have to do a little traveling. But it is expanding so it should be better.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: Communications Interest – In order to get into the communications major, you have to start out as an interest. In the interest major, you must be within the top 100 students in the major after completing the four interest courses in order to get into the major. If not than you have to start over or find a different major.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: The Wheels on the Bus – Several buses go back and forth all day long to pick up students. There is also a train station nearby. Students are able to go to New York and other surrounding areas easily. Students are allowed to have cars. There is really no need for transportation off of campus since everything is right at our fingertips, but it's still there.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is a bit annoying at times. As a commuter, I have to park at the Bob Carpenter Center and catch the bus to main campus. That's not bad, but the parking permit is a bit pricey. Depending on where you want to part, the cost can range from approximately $120 to $300. If you park one spot away from the correct zone, you get a ticket. My first ticket was $30. However, you can get your first one waived. You can park on campus, but make sure you have coins to put into the meters. There's really no need for a car on campus. Main Street and the buses are all you need. However, if you're a commuter like me... it's a must.

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.
