What is your overall opinion of this school?

UD is an awesome place. I love the atmosphere of the school and the beautiful campus/town. It is often forgotten about when high school seniors apply, but each year UD is climbing up in rankings. Most students here are science or business majors of some form, but I know people with all different kinds of majors. Academics here are definitely challenging, but not impossible with some hard work. Everyone here has a competitive mindset and wants to do their best. Yes, it is a huge party school but kids here are just as driven academically. Greek life is prominent here, but I think you can have a good time and a fun social life without being in a frat/sorority. The food in the dining halls is definitely not delicious, but compared to other colleges it definitely seems more appetizing and there are lots of options. I do wish there were more dining halls though, especially on weekends when Caesar Rodney is the only dining hall open on the main part of campus. On-campus housing for the most part is decent, with some freshman dorms being pretty old and outdated, however UD is constantly renovating buildings and they just built a beautiful new freshmen dorm. Overall, I have very few negative things to say about UD. It sure is not perfect, but there is no where else I would rather be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Considering that University of Delaware was the cheapest and most prestigious option for a Delaware resident like me, the University of Delaware is exactly what I expected. It is like any other school in that it has many great qualities and others to be improved like on-campus housing and food.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Delaware and I am so glad I choose to attend! Some of my professors are so engaging and truly love what they are doing. They have had a tremendous impact on my career focus and concentration. My communication classes are very interesting and I was able to combined a degree in Communication with a new minor in Sustainable Fashion Merchandising. I never thought some of my favorite classes would be in women's studies but each semester I try to take one class. University of Delaware has a big social scene - there is not lack of fun. I guess you can say Blue Hens work hard and play hard.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Delaware provides a wonderful campus to students to learn. The professors are available during office hours and are usually able to take individual planned meetings. If you're looking to have an active social life, there are many greek organizations on campus. Sports events are fun even though no Delaware teams are that big. In general, I feel that I have grown both academically and socially in Newark, Delaware.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Delaware offers a variety of courses of interest for students. It provides thorough teaching of the subjects with teachers passionate about their subject matter. It's important to talk to your adviser and get as much guidance on your interest in a major as possible. The teachers in my degree were willing to help guide our interests and taught the subjects in a manner that was clear.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is truly no other place I would want to experience college and gain knowledge, new friends, and opportunities at other than University of Delaware. When I first stepped on campus I felt at home, something just clicked. It's a medium sized school that feels small because everyone is friendly and you can easily find your place and where you belong. The location is perfect, Newark has everything going on, shops, restaurants, it's not too far from any desired location such as Philadelphia or Dover beaches. The town makes you not miss home so much due to the warm atmosphere that surrounds the campus. The name of course in itself is highly recognized for its renowned academics, one of the top public universities in the country. Here at UD you build a relationship with your professors that aid in your success. The social scene is very lively. There is always something to do such as sporting events, sponsored concerts, community activities, parties, you name it, it's at UD. This school is special and it is like no other and I'm very proud to call myself a Blue Hen.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It looks really cool, and I'm excited to move in on August 26th!! Many people, like some close friends of my older sister have told me great things about this school and campus life. Also, I attended "music major weekend" in the spring of this year. I was able to sleep in the dorm and shadow an upperclassman! I have never before been around so many people who shared my same passion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first arrived here, I'll admit it was very difficult. There is a lot of culture shock associated with moving 600 miles away from home. But this campus is great for making you feel like you have a community. As soon as you join one club, or interact with your freshman floor, or take a class that you love you're able to see a friendly face every 10 minutes. It's a big school with a small school feel.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Delaware because it is my home away from home. Most of the people I meet here are very helpful and are friendly when I have a question or need help. The professors are passionate about what they are teaching and try to engage the students as much as possible to create and develop an effective learning environment. The University provides plenty of safety resources and academic resources for students. There are various clubs that students can join. There is something for everyone. Students have the opportunities to take leadership roles such as an orientation leader, resident assistant, and president of a club. I was a welcome ambassador last year and I had fun showing the students our school and answering their questions.The school also provides "fun nights" for its students so that they have a alternate safe way of having fun during the weekends. I am excited to start my junior year here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In the past, the University of Delaware had an issue with diversity and misrepresentation of the student body. While I am a white female, I recognize that there is a lack of representation on campus for students of other ethnicities and backgrounds. However, whenever there is a call to action, the student body comes together and unites in a way that surprises me. Among peaceful protesting, there have been walkouts, demonstrations, and public meetings where students' individual voices are actively supported and encouraged. Although there could be an improvement in the opportunities given on campus for minority students, UD is getting better, and I'm proud to say I stand in a community that is evolving.
