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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have only been attending the University for Delaware for about two months now. Throughout my time here I have made a decent number of friends and found that getting involved in clubs and sports through the university is very easy. The University of Delaware offers a number of extracurricular activities from clubs that involve traveling the country with your peers to interest study groups outside of class. I have found that there are helpful resources all around campus and everyone is very welcoming. If I ever feel lost or that I need a bit of motivation for the week I can talk to my advisor or RA because everyone is so friendly. Most everyone here is willing to help and it is very easy to feel comfortable on and around campus. The parties on the weekends are also very fun but there are also other activities to engage in if you're not interested in going to the parties, such as Perkins live or trabant now! Overall the University of Delaware is a great college that offers a lot to its students. You'll most likely never find yourself bored and will always have a friend to talk to!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Delaware has a beautiful campus with friendly people around the campus. The dining halls and classroom are also nice. Professor are helpful when a student needs either during class or at given office hours and some even record lectures on UDcapture. The only thing I dislike a bit is the student Finical Aid office because sometime they mess up or do not give enough advice on certain topic. But overall, UD is a nice college for continuing education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Delaware is a place that really pushes for student involvement outside of class and encourages students to be more social towards each other. There is also a variety of clubs that are made by UD and also students that help people find others who they can relate and become friends with. The academic style of the course is difficult an requires you to push yourself to see if you really do want your goals and the professors will not leave you clueless and always send resources on how to help succced in class.
