University of Delaware Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Chelsea

At the University of Delaware we have an excellent Engineering program, so many people relate the entire body of students to that. Thus common stereotypes include geeks or people that study in the library all the time. However, Greek Life is a big part of the social life here at UD, so then there are the stereotypical Frat bros and Sorority chics. There is a large percentage of Asian and Asian-American students that attend the University of Delaware, to bring back the stereotype of a geeky school. Most of our sports teams are Division II, so we have many Jocks as well. Both of my parents went here and they still associate UD with parties. My Dad was a big party guy but my Mom never left the art studio! There are many stereotypes but UD is a moderately-large University so there is a place for everyone!
