What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that Delaware's environment can be summed up in one phrase, "For boys, if you're not in a frat or on a sports team, good luck finding fun." The school is well set on the fraternity life and when I first visited, I thought clubs and activities were a place to meet new people, but I felt that was not true. Many of the girls go out almost every night and with limited availability for men to go out and have fun, I don't suggest boys to go to this school if they aren't prepared to drink themselves to unconsciousness or on a sports team. While the facilities and dining halls are very good and new, there is the environment where if you are not in a group with friends, you look like an outcast with sororities and entire floors having meals and study groups. With thousands of kids in the business school, it was hard to connect closely with classmates. Taking breadth courses take a while, but the professors are always available, however it is frustrating how hard many students work to succeed, with other students barely finishing assignments, strictly focused on partying every night. So before you choose UD based on the pretty campus and cool buildings, be prepared for the social limitations and requirements to have their college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It seems like an amazing school! I have only been to the school once, but from what I and have seen I have not seen anything to be scared of. I enjoy walking along Main Street and seeing the college kids fresh out of class. The students all seem to be happy with the workload and a little stressed out but it doesn't seem like anything serious.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my experience at University of Delaware has been pretty good. The only issue is that there is a separation of commuters and those who live on campus. As someone who commutes, I feel as though it is harder to make friends because most people get friends in their dorms from day one, and I wish there was a way to connect students more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Delaware has both negative and positive aspects to it that sum it up to be an overall average school experience. The class sizes are decent. As a student I was able to find both large and small class sizes for any subject, so I was able to pick my preference on the type of class I was sitting in. There was also a wide variety of majors and types of classes offered, that I was never bored in my studies and I was always able to find classes I was excited about. Another positive aspect was that the facilities were very clean, and they provided the proper tools needed within those facilities for the classes they held. An example of this being that since I was an art student, the art buildings had easels, a sculpture materials that were needed depending on the classes I was taking. I also think that the overall size of the campus was a really positive aspect. You could walk to all of your classes, but you still felt like you were on a college campus. Some of the negative aspects were the social environment, the dining halls, and the lack of guidance. The social environment is very much driven by the night life of the school, and if you are a student who does not like going to parties you may struggle to find the crowd that you fall into. I was more focused on academics than most of my classroom peers, and my roommates, so I struggled the first couple years to find the group that I fell into. Another negative aspect I mentioned was the dining halls. There are three dining halls, and only one of them is worth going to. The newest dining hall is where most of the students attend, so it is very crowded. It has better food than the other two dining halls, but it still needs some improvement. The dining hall has basic food options, but they always add a spin to them, which many of the students do to appreciate. They will make cheeseburgers, but then add an apple into it, and they do not offer the option to get your burger without the apple because all the food is premade. Also if you have a food allergy, there are very limited options, and on weekends I usually found nothing that I could eat. Lastly, the lack of guidance I found was very discouraging at times. We were given the graduation requirements freshman year, and from there I felt I was on my own to make sure I fulfilled all my requirements. One of the requirements was an internship, which I found on my own after having gone to the career center and receiving no help in finding where to start my search. Another issue I had was that I was never assigned a guidance counselor to talk to each semester when registering for classes, or in between semesters when I had questions. I found my own counseling by going to professors that I trusted, however at times those professors were even hard to get in contact with. Prior to graduating the school offered no help, and showed no interest in any of the student's job searches. I was lucky enough to get a job right out of school, however I know some alumni from the University of Delaware who are still looking and not sure where to start.

I love being a student at the University of Delaware. It has molded me into the strong and independent woman I am today. I have created life-long relationships with classmates and friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UD. You can never be bored on this campus. There are so many different organizations and clubs to join that you will find your group of people fairly quick. UD has given me so many opportunities, and I feel confident entering the real world after graduation. The campus is also beautiful and walking everywhere is the best option because all buildings are within walking distance.

it takes some time to get adjusted but you'll make friends and learn to absolutely love it. lots of people keep their freshman year friends for all four years. find a major you like and you'll enjoy school. make friends with your advisor. UD is awesome, the campus is pretty and the buildings are 95% really nice.
