3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm not coming here again. I plan on transferring (which a lot of students end up doing). This school wasn't a good fit for me. I hated how everyone knew everyone and everyone's story. You don't meet new people all the time. I want something different for myself. This school has great buildings, great professors, and flexible times for working out or eating. The people are nice and they are very supportive.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The programs here are very tough to be in. I was in a sport and I hated how it was run. People go to the volleyball games, basketball games, and sometimes the football games, but that's about it. Our teams here at UD are not very good either. Our girls and boys' basketball teams are the best here at UD.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They work with your situation. Yes, it takes some work to receive the aid, but the school will give you grants if you describe your issues. They gave me a lot of money!

Campus Food: We have great food available. Yes, they don't have a ton of options, but they do have decent food. I've never had a bad meal at Heritage. Our cafe isn't the greatest for lunch and dinner, but we have a great breakfast and brunch!

3 College Freshman

Majors: It's hard to get into Nursing, but it is everywhere. Also, I think that it's easy to complete your major here. Especially Psychology.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't really got into my major yet, but I do like how the upperclassmen make it sound. They are very informative because of the small class sizes.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I plan on having an internship. I heard UD is very good at setting that up.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a ton of people in this school. They are many different kinds of people if you actually go out to go meet new people.

3 College Freshman

Academics: If you're a nursing major or a aviation major, you're in good hands. These two majors are cared about most on campus. The workload your freshman year is really easy. The job opportunities on campus are not very good and a lot of places off campus can be hard to find.

2 College Freshman

Academics: They don't care if you show up. If you hit the max and you don't show up, that's against your grade. They will work with you if you miss assignments though. The library is the place where kids will study. It gets hectic towards finals!

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Most of the buildings are new and gorgeous. They are very up kept and they do a very good job and making the buildings seem appealing. Campus activities are okay. Nothing special about them. Student hangout places are non existent. Most people stay in their rooms. The library is a great place to study or get some coffee.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a very small school. There isn't much to do unless you party and drink.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The recruiters are always in your business. They call, email, call your parents... They basically stalk you. They make you feel like you're wanted. We have a special service at our school called Career Services and they do a great job in making you feel like you are going to have a successful job somewhere after attending UD.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: Dubuque is an old town, so their isn't much going on ever. It's easy to go downtown and see things by the Mississippi River though. The safety is okay. I rarely see cops unless it is a Friday or Saturday night.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I'm going to say this flat out. There are a lot of black people. I have nothing against them whatsoever, but there are a lot on campus. They are all very nice! A lot of people are drinkers, so if you're against drinking, you may be screwed over. The girls here apparently get better every year, according to the guys, and the boys are okay. They aren't drop dead gorgeous, but they are cute.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our main lady that you need to go to if you're having health issues is Deb Runkle. She is a pain to talk to. Most students would rather stay in bed sick than go in and talk to her. She is a very rude person and she doesn't have your best interest at heart. UD doesn't offer a health care system. If you're sick, you need to get a ride or drive to a doctor's office that Deb directs you too. Our security on the other hand is good. They get to the scene right away. Yes, they can be strict, but they aren't mean about it.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I never see anything that our greek life does. I never hear about anything that they do either. None of the groups have a house, but they have small little areas that they meet up in. Most people say that being in this Greek Life is a joke. I believe that this is a lie. These groups do amazing things, but they don't get any more of a social status.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The houses in Dubuque are very old. Given that it's an old town, if you get approved to live off-campus after you freshman year and beyond (WHICH IS A HASSEL AND VERY HARD), the houses are very old. A lot of the landlords don't take very good care of the houses because they don't care. One of the landlords told me, "I don't give a flying f*** what you do to these houses. Smoke weed if that's what you're into". They is some better houses, but once you try to find 4-5 bedrooms, it becomes more difficult.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: We have three colleges total in Dubuque, so it's nice to meet other students from other colleges. Also, there are usually parties every weekend. You need to have connections with people, but those connections are pretty easy to get.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have options around campus, but you need to have a car. The only places that you can walk and get food are Hardee's and the gas station. Everything else you would need a car.

2 College Freshman

Administration: UD doesn't have a lot of rules that they follow. They tell you that it is against the rules, but they never really act upon it. You won't have any issues if you are respectful to others though. Also, if you stay in your dorm room and aren't super loud or obnoxious, you can drink. I can't tell you how many weekends freshman stay in and drink in their dorm rooms. It's ridiculous. They say it's a "dry" campus, but they won't come barging into your room and writing a write up.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Housing is an overall expensive mess. It depends where you live. There are four regular dorm set up residence halls, and then there is one that is setup like an apartment building, and the last one is a campus townhouse. They are cleaned by our cleaning service and they do a good job. It's never gross. If you have an issue, all you have to do is call them and they will help clean it up.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: the parties at the University of Dubuque are nonexistent

1 College Freshman

Administration: you don't have to sign anyone in or out of the dorms. its pointless to even have visitation hours. security doesn't care if you have alcohol or if you drink in your rooms. and there was constantly people smoking pot in their rooms in Donnell and no one did anything about it. the only thing they were interested in was giving you parking tickets so you could pay the University even more than what you were paying them in the first place.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: UD scholarships were fine. its the military scholarships that i had a problem with.
