As a student coming from a small high school, I really like the "feel" of UD in that yes, there are a lot of people on campus, but you surprisingly see people you know while walking around every day. The classes feel intimate, even if there are 50+ students. Professors care to learn your name and help you in any way possible. It feels like a small school, but there are so many opportunities and people to meet at the same time. Food wise, I recommend BrewHaha, Cafe Gelato, Snap Pizza, and Drip Cafe.
The University of Delaware is a school that cares about their students and their education. They have plenty of clubs and sports to participate in. Many of the staff and students are also very kind and helpful. They also have many available resources for their students.
It is a good school overall but has some bad professor, but what college doesn't? Likewise there are some very negative parts of the college. For example the mental health services for the school is a joke. Nobody truly receives substantial help from their program.
The University of Delaware is a great school and definitely an excellent option for in-state students. The professors are very knowledgeable and accessible. The dorms are nice and there are lots of options at the three dining halls. I feel safe on campus.

I would tell myself not to worry so much about choosing a college and knowing that I would be able to grow and make friends no matter what. I would also probably have told myself to think about what I wanted to major in since I came into University of Delaware undecided. I would tell myself to just be myself! :)
My classmates are motivated individuals who understand the importance of balance between social life and academics.
Overall, this school is absolutely amazing. I love going here and there are so many opportunities if you look for them. I think its exactly the right size especially for my major, foreign languages, so you really get to personally know your professors and better practice your skills. All the alumni I have happened to meet outside of school and those who I have told that I go to the University of Delaware have an overwhelmingly positive response, especially in reaction to the program my school offers for foreign languages which is technically my major: Three Languages. Aside from the critical languages I study (Chinese, Arabic and Russian) there are ample opportunities to study other languages which excites me and many other students. Aside from the program that allows me to study three different languages under one degree, I would say the best thing about UD is being able to be so close to peers and professors because of the size. It gives way to genuine connections with people that care about you and want to help you succeed in any way they can.
I am in the honors program, and it is a competitive program offering fantastic academic resources and rigorous classes.
Greek life along with club sports and a cappella are very popular here.
Some stereotypes are that they are white, middle class, all american type kids
YES! Everyone here is so friendly and has so much school spirit. The campus is beautiful and every building is brick. The kids are pretty preppy but not too much.
the enviornemt is awesome and there's always someone to talk to if you're having problems.
The University of Delaware is a school with a beautiful campus, strong academics, and a fun, friendly social atmosphere.
Friends. You make life long friends
The grades are not given out free and you do need to attend class but it is up to the individual as to how hard you work or want to be involved in the school. It has over 20,000 students on campus and is more of a town than as opposed if you were looking for a city. I would say a person who likes the mix of a good size campus but the location is in a small state.
Before entering the University of Delaware, I was undecided as to what major I should chose. I wish I had known prior to enrolling that many of the majors I was interested in, such as nursing and elementary education, had tight schedules in order to graduate in four years. Due to the inflexibility of the requirements for some majors, there are limitations on what classes a student can take. My wish would have been to be aware of these restricitions before I was in college.
All students wishing to higher their education level should attend this school. The student body is very welcoming to all people of different races, ethnicities, or orientations. I have never witnessed a problem among students involving problems such as race or diversity.
The University of Delaware was ranked in the top 60 colleges of the United States.
To me there isn`t any frustrating part about UD. But something I do not like is that you can get lost if you do not learn your way around campus.
There is a stereotype that all students of University of Delaware party every single weekend and are not terribly concerned with study habits. While UD students definitely know how to have a good time, they also know when to call it a night and hit the books. Also, there are plenty of students who are very in to their studies and do not party at all. It's truly a very diverse student population. You can find any type of person you're looking for.
Both of my parents attending the University of Delaware, as well as some of my aunts and uncles. Two of my cousins go to UD as well so Blue Hen pride is certainly in our family! In-state tuition was definitely a plus! Besides finances and family, UD is just such a great University. It challenges you academically but gives you plenty of outlets to relieve your stress. Also, I am 5 minutes from home and already had a stable job so I was not about to give those up!
Most students most likely complain about the parking situation. In order to have a car on campus, you need to pay a couple hundred dollars for a UD parking pass. The lots where students can park are only on North and East Campus, which is inconvenient for those living on South and East Campus. Personally, I do not see why a UD student would need a car other than for work. Everything is so close together that walking, skate boarding, and biking is all that it takes!
