Ellen

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.

No matter what one's background may be, they will be able for find others with a common interst and manage to fit in smoothly. However, this school is academically challenging.

Anybody with a strong will to learn and to graduate with a good head start would be a perfect match for UD.

Marvina

The University of Delaware is such an interesting school, that it's dfficult to limit the student demographic to solely one description. Most students come from same/silimar upbringing and even the same towns, so there is monotany. But anyone who's willing to work hard, is willing to learn about different cultures and ideas, and is ready to be challenged socially, emotionally, and all other aspects to the fullest, can and should attend this school. Some great leaders graduated from UD...most of us feel obligated to continue that rich legacy.

Most importantly though, the person needs to be serious about their education.

Diana

A person who is driven and independent should attend this school. The University of Delaware is a large school where one really has to work hard to stand out in his classes. If he does not understand the material, he himself has to work up the nerve to go talk with the professor and learn the material because the classes are so large that the professors do not go out of their way to make sure that each individual understands the material, they just go by the overall test scores. In order to do well here you must work hard.

Soukaina

Someone who doesn't want to be to far away from home. Its in an ideal location, 40 minutes from Philadelphia, 2 hours from New York and 2 hours from DC. So if you're ever bored, stressed or homesick you can go and visit family on the weekend or spend some time in the City.

friendly, open-mind, flexiable, and deligent people

Lena

Our university welcomes the daring. Ever dreamt of white-water rafting? How about becoming a radio talk host? It also celebrates the familiar. Love student government? Play sports? Like music? They thrive. Our university awaits the intellectual. Be prepared to have ideas challenged. Class discussions are mind-turning and riveting. Finally, it offers an escape from a buzzing city or a chance to be part of a community. Have a taste for a rural, laidback feel with enough of an urban mix? You?ll love it. You could call this large town. You can call it a small city.

Jaclyn

outgoing, fun, hardworking, focused students who enjoy being part of a community and learning a lot while still having a lot of fun in college

Daniel

Someone who is very social, friendly, and tolerant both of religion and race. Also someone who isn't overwhelmed by bigger classes and has no trouble keeping up with the lesson plans.

Marissa

I feel like many different types of people would be fine attending this school. However, I do feel that most people tend to be rather similar. The majority of the students are either from Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or Maryland. Most are from middle class to upper middle class families. The social scene on campus is mostly a bunch of parties or when you turn 21 it's going to the bars. If you aren't into partying Delaware probably isn't going to be a very social campus for you.

Andrew

One that has a strong academic or athletic background who is able to cope with balancing time between schoolwork and extracurricular activities. Some classes are easier than others, allowing some students to put minimal effort in at the beginning. When major courses arise, those students who took it easy in the beginning, struggle to get used to it, and sometimes turn to other majors as a result due to the wide variety offered here. It would be better to have an idea of where you want to go, rather than come in undecided.

Rob

Any kind of person would like this school, so long as they're not terribly sensitive to problems in housing, finances, or food services.

Lauren

A person who has many interests, wants to get a well-rounded and rich education, meet students from all different states, be able to reinvent themselves whenever they want and who wants to gain a unique and valuable learning experience that will benefit them in the job market but who still wants to have a large social life with different groups of friends. This person would need to be a little more independent, because the school requires you to take the initiative with your education.

Megan

Someone who is willing to work hard, but also let loose and have some fun. UD is the perfect place for someone who is driven to have a successful career, but having an amazing experience along the way. Prospective students should be willing to try new things, but are also encouraged to continue growing previous interests of theirs.

Rebecca

I think that it would be easy to get lost at this school and get caught up in social activities like partying. A person at this school should be goal drivin and want to get involved in school activities. Most students that go to this school are white upper middle to upper class. Since I am not a minority at this school I don't know how difficult it may be for a person that is.

Molly

People who are willing to work hard to achieve their goals. People who know how to balance school work and fun.

Michelle

An uppermiddle class to wealthy person who desires to learn based on what they want to do for their career. This school is hard for people who do not come in knowing exactly what they want to do with their life.

Lynn

Anyone driven, intelligent, and looking to lead a bright future should not skip over the University of Delaware.

Kristen

I believe a person that values their social life very highly would fit in perfectly at the University of Delaware. Also, someone who does not value diversity that much, because UD is lacking in the number of minorities and people who are "different" from the typical upper-middle class white student. Basically, I believe a student that values their education but likes to have fun with people very similar to themselves would be very happy at UD.

Kelsey

One who attends the University of Delaware should be motivated, dedicated, and passionate about a field of study. They must also be open to new ideas and situations involving diversity.

A person willing to take advantage of the opportunities it offers is the type of person that should attend this school. If you are looking to succeed, the University of Delaware is the place to be.

The majority of the campus is white, upper middle class. There is little diversity. So if you are comfortable fitting into that mold, then this school is mainly for you. Students here are also energetic about sporting events, and while the majority of students attend these events, you will not be leftout if you don't. Also this school has many parties.
