Amazing place, great environment. Ravi enjoys it as well. we talk it on Zoom all the time. it is all we can talk about right now. we wish this review would end. You have provided an overall rating. Sweet! Academics joys it as well. we eat environm review wo


I am an online distance learner at WilmU. I have visited the campus several times and it is immaculate, newly built and inviting. I get text invitations to campus activities. I also can join campus groups online. Professors are an email away although they have posted office hours.


Wilmington University is a great school as far as academics, campus life, and an overall education experience. The new blackboard system where students submit their work for class needs a small bit of work as far as accuracy. Other than that Wilmington University is a great school for students to attend.


I personally love my school. Sure there are things I would rather have a different way but I never find much to complain about. The teachers are always available and the class sizes are small which definitely helps someone who asks a million questions like I do. I like feeling that my teachers actually want me to earn my degree whereas my friends do not have the same opinion of their schools.

A college experience that was rich in age appropriate acivities that were exciting and stimulating to the students body. And a school that fostered a strong sense of school spirit. In terms of education, it is important to find a college that believes in the importance of a healthy student-teacher relationship.

  5. What kind of person should attend this school?

    I honestly believe that, after being at this school for 4.5 years that, a lazy person should attend my current school. I have not learned anything during my four and a half year stint at Wilmington. I can't wait to continue my education elsewhere, somewhere I can learn and succeed, somewhere that is not a diploma mill. Many people will tell you the same thing about this school, quite frankly, it's sad. I wish I had known that years ago when I originally applied.

  9. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    My school offers small class sizes in a big city atmosphere. It is only a few miles from Wilmington and down town Newark which is another college town. Alot of students from my school go to Newark to hang out and have fun with University of Delaware students. Other schools that I considered in towns like this had class sizes of a hundred or more, at Wilmington class are between 10-20 students on average. The teachers know all the students by name and they have plenty of time to give each student individual attention.

  10. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    I attend Wilmington University at the campus in Georgetown, Delaware and because it is not the main campus, students are not provided with the same services and facilites. The worst thing about Wilmington University in Georgetown is that is does not have its own bookstore, library, or computer lab. Staff and students of Wilmington University have to use the Delaware Technical and Community College's facilities including the bookstore, library, computer lab, gym, etc.
