4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: A Great College Overall – The academic programs at Delaware are wonderful. Especially the program I am in, nursing. The nursing curriculum prepares the nursing students very well for their future careers. Also from my friends in other majors, the engineering, teaching, music, and business programs are great as well. The social scene is amazing. There are a lot of things to do on campus and everyone is friendly.

4 College Freshman

Technology: There are several computer labs available to students on campus. If you don't own a laptop or a computer, you will definitely have access to one. Printing on campus is readily available to students as well. Lines do get long around finals, but other than that it's great. The network and wireless speed is occasionally slow but it is understandable considering the amount of students that use the internet at school.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is very hard to obtain financial aid since there are so many students who apply.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely a prominent part of the social scene, but you do not have to be greek to have a social life. I have lots of friends that are greek as well as non-greek, it just depends on what you want to do. It is fun but definitely not necessary.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Both guys and girls are very good-looking. Overall, students dress fairly preppy and trendy and everyone seems to care a lot about how they look.

3 College Junior

Parking: The parking on campus is decent, the permit you get depends on whether you live in a campus dorm or not and how quickly you hand in your permit application. Freshman dorms don't really have good parking but the campus set up doesn't require a car. The bus system is available to all students at no cost and hits just about everywhere on campus.

3 College Junior

Academics: I'm completely satified with my education so far, the professors for the psychology classes are extremely knowledgeable. The class sizes for most psych classes allow for personal interaction with the professors. The advising for this department could use some work based on what my friends say about their majors advising system.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Nice Dorms – The housing on campus is nice, but expensive, so move off campus early.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Good Eating – There are a lot of options for off campus dining and all are reasonably priced.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safe Town – There are always police officers and public safety around and there is little crime in newark.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Having a Blast! I have loved my time so far at delaware. It is a weird transition from high school but it is so much fun.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Dont Cheat – The school takes their academic honesty policy very seriously, do not cheat.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Good Housing, but Look Early – There are a lot of apartments and houses available, but you really need to look early. If you want to live off campus you should have something locked up by the end of october or early november, otherwise all of the good places will be taken and you will be left with something expensive and/or further from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs definitely go around campus, but UD isnt a huge drug school. Basically if you want something and look for it, you'll find it. Marijuana is pretty huge here.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports at UD are pretty big, we have a great football team and tailgating is fun!

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Dining Halls – The dining halls are okay for freshman year...convient hours...wouldn't use it as a non freshman

4 College Junior

Party Scene: UD has an awesome night life and there's never a dull night on campus. The students love to party but work hard as well. There are frat/house/apartment parties all over campus and the hen after ten bus runs until 3:30 to take you closer to your destination. Main St. has plenty of bars for the 21+ crowd too. Overall great night life, great school

1 College Freshman

Parking: It's costing my $53.00 to have my car here for two weeks, and my car is three miles away from where I live. Cops are not afraid to ticket those with no permit, but a car is needed to get out of Newark.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Party City – Delaware is your typical party school, except the parties are overrated. You end up walking around most of the time for nothing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This School Is Awesome – I fell in love with this school, in every way possible, from the beauty of the campus, to the friendly attitude of the student body, to the academic support and resources that UD provides. I have met amazing people and have had a lot of fun experiences so far. There is rumor that this is a huge party school, but when your here, its a balance of work and play, and you eventually learn how to handle a social life and academics. But ultimately, it's up to you...UD has a lot to offer, you just gotta go out there and embrace it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: By the end of my freshman year i felt that more than half of my floor had joined a frat or sorority. Greek life here definitely has on impact on the student body and it is evident, but it does not completely dominate. There is no real pressure to join one.

Athletics: Football team spirit is pretty big, and our team this season has been doing pretty good. Other teams aren't as recognized, such as the girl's volleyball and rowing team. Sports aren't very huge here.

Drug Safety: We Prefer Drug Free – The drug scene at University of Delaware is not that bad. But of-course there may be a few people who might be involved, but it is not out in the open.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Not Very Bad – The weather is not very bad during the school year, although it gets hot in the summer.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: For Freshman, life is pretty strict. Some RA's can be very uptight and are looking to get people in trouble. But, most RA's are there to just keep order and aren't looking to get kids into trouble. For upper classmen, it's not that strict. Apartments don't have RA's, so as long as your not publicly intoxicated you normally won't get in trouble. Regarding academics, cheating is not tolerated and you will get in a lot of trouble if you are caught cheating.

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.
