The professors are typically very willing to help and are willing to work with you to help understand the material or just adjust to life on campus. The career center is also very informative and can connect you to more than just the general job searching platforms, they know organizations that can help you out as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

People have occasionally gotten food poisoning from the dining halls. Also, the financial offices take forever to process loans and will charge you late fees. If you go in-person to talk about it, they are typically willing to waive the fees.



My experience at the University of Delaware has been good overall. The people are friendly and the teachers really do seem to care about the students and how they're doing. It is a really big campus and takes a little longer to get around. If you don't enjoy being surrounded by people at all times this might not be the campus for you but if that is something you into this campus is perfect.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I personally didn't like how crowded the school was. It seemed like there was nowhere to go when you wanted to be alone. The prices for meal plans and books also weren't great in my opinion.

I really liked the academics. They have a lot of different opportunities for students to get involved on campus and to take classes that are really unique and interesting.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

While the weekdays are normally very lively, the campus really quiets down on the weekends. There are not many university-sponsored events on Sat or Sun and a lot of people who are from nearby will go home for the weekends.



Personally, I enjoy that the University of Delaware provides many different pathways for students to take and allows them to venture into different subjects enabling them to get a knowledge of the things they are interested in and would want to pursue in their future. The advisors are excellent and provide you with a solid 4-year plan which you can use as a tool to register for classes and always are available for questions. The social life is very big at the University of Delaware however it is one that you need to put in a lot of effort to be a part of.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining halls and the food options at the University of Delaware are scarce. For example, if you are a Hispanic student like myself, it is very rare that we get a taste of our cultural foods.

Skylar Robey



The University of Delaware has a safe campus and it is easy to talk to people and make new friends.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only downsides would be the dining halls and cars on campus. The dining halls' food is not the best and the cost of having a car on campus is ridiculous.

Krystin Aytch



It was challenging during the quarantine but during the start of the fourth year, I started meeting with my advisor. My advisor gave me the advice and support I needed. Honestly, my advice to upcoming students is to be persistent with emails that are discussing any problems you are having with your education.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The student financial office can be irritating when asking questions regarding scholarships or billing issues.
