"I cannot say enough about how great UD is. I had a couple of professors who became my mentors that I still keep in touch with, 10 years after graduating. I also was able to get a job 2 months after graduating with my Bachelors degree, during the recession in 2009. I still work at the same place, and ha e advanced in my career, thanks to my background at UD. Im so thankful I went there, and highly recommend."

"University of Delaware is a large institution with the ability to give students a small, community feel. The resources offered by the university to get involved will shape a student's experience while at UD. Joining clubs, sports, councils, or other groups will give you lifelong friendships and connections. The academic programs at UD have a strong reputation and a great career outlook. I loved my time at UD and would recommend this college experience."

"I really loved the University of Delaware. I had a great experience, especially with the UD Honors program. They fully funded 2 of my extra opportunities I pursued in the summer months. Living in the UD Honors Program housing was a highlight of the experience as well. While at school, I completed three internships, studied abroad, was involved in the theater club, and was a Resident Assistant. I fully took advantage of all opportunities. Delaware makes it really easy to double major and to minor. I double majored in Economics and English and I was also a dance minor. Once you got to junior or senior year, the classes had about 20 students in them."

  • Degree: Nursing
"I loved my four years at the University of Delaware. I majored in Nursing, was a University Cheerleader and Ambassador for Social Media. The campus is beautiful during each season and the "green" can be filled with students hanging out all year long. You can get involved in as many or as little school activities as you would like. The food was better than some of my friends schools and the choices are given to appeal to every and any diet requirement. One of my favorites, was breakfast for dinner. The College of Nursing was amazing. It provided hands on labs and simulation rooms. Prepared you for life in a hospital setting with clinical very early in your studies, not just junior and senior year like some universities. The professors were very open and available to extra hour help and were always wanting you to succeed. I learned a lot from them. The friends that I meet in the Nursing major were amazing. We all helped each other out and boosted each other up. I still remain in contact with many still. I would highly recommend the University of Delaware as a place you would like and be happy for four years."

"The University of Delaware provides a top-tier, well-rounded educational experience. As an out-of-state student, there was a great support system for me as a freshman living on campus. The quality of instruction by professors was unparalleled. Diversity was also a priority, as there were many opportunities for students to become involved in diverse programming. Overall, the education I earned there has prepared me well for my career."

"I attended the University of Delaware because the professors shared many of my research interests. As a result, I have had a program that was rigorous and rewarding. Parts of my degree program were required by the University, but much of it was tailored specifically to my research interests. I believe this program has prepared me for a position as a univeristy faculty at an institution with a high research emphasis."

"University of Delaware was a really great school for someone who was extremely lost at 18 years-old. The first thing that I learned was to embrace diversity. I also learned at University of Delaware that I could become anything that I put my mind to. I first started off thinking that I wanted to be a social worker. University of Delaware has a great faculty with regards to their Individual Family Studies Program, but by the time I was reaching my senior year, I realized that I had a much stronger passion for the law. Realizing that I really did not want to pursue social work as I had originally planned, I began to explore my growing interests in criminal justice and law. I minored in Legal Studies, taking courses in law, political science, sociology, and criminal justice. I was intrigued by the various criminal justice theories and research methodologies. I was fascinated by the major legal principles and issues and with every aspect and analysis of the law. I took just about every class related to law that I could fit into my schedule before I graduated. University of Delaware was instrumental in helping me realize that I had a passion for pursing a law degree and a career as a legal advocate helping victims of violence and abuse. I worked full time and earned both a Bachelor of Science from University of Delaware, making Deans List several times, Now I am a law student and I plan to pursue a legal career in domestic violence and child advocacy. University of Delaware was a really great school."

  • Degree: Speech Pathology
"I enjoyed my time at the University of Delaware. I entered as a freshman not knowing what I wanted to study or what career I wanted to pursue. I am extremely lucky that what I ended up wanting to study was an option at UD. Many undergraduate programs do not offer speech and language pathology programs, but UD does. I enjoyed the professors in the program as well as the opportunities for research and jobs in the area. Being that it is such a large school however, as a student, you need to reach out to your professors and get to know them well. This will serve you well when you start needing recommendations."

"I had a very pleasant experience at the University of Delaware. There are many things that I liked about the University but I will start with the things I did not like. The first thing is that at times you can feel like you dont belong until you find a club/activity that resonates with you. The school really does offer a lot of different clubs/ experiences but at times it can be overwhelming. I really did not feel extremely at home until my Junior Year when I joined a club sports team. Another thing I did not like was the fact that a lot of money was allocated to low-impact activities. I worked for the university housing department and was exposed to a lot of different events. The amount of money spent on programs ($10,000 for a single alcohol-free Friday night program) is astonishing and I would have much rather that money reduce the costs of the tuition. I think they could have accomplished these programs with a much smaller budget. One of my favorite parts of UD was the people. I didnt know 90% of the people on campus but most people were very friendly, welcoming, and great. Students would band together whenever someone would try and spread hate on the campus and for the most part make sure everyone felt like they belonged. Another thing that I like was the social life. There was always so much going on at UD and if you wanted to party you certainly could. It didnt matter what group of people you were with or organization you were a part of, there were always parties. The greek life is huge at UD and was a sure way to help you party. I personally would party, but I did not feel like I was to the same level as the people around me. Being an engineering student, I certainly had to sacrifice some weekends and nights to studying, homework and projects. But I can tell that people were going out every weekend and even week nights. You dont have to go out at UD but if that is something you want to do in college, you certainly can. I was a big fan of UDs Mechanical engineering undergrad program. It has a large design aspect to it and every year in the curriculum there was a design project that builds up to your senior design project working with an actual company. At times you can see nepotism with a certain group of people who were heavily involved with Mechanical engineering clubs. These people were speculated to have previous years exams and extra advice for tests that I felt provided an unfair advantage to the rest of the class. The courses were tough, like any engineering program, but I felt that the professors really wanted to help us learn and would guide you in the right direction if you reached out for their help. Some of the math professors I had a more difficult time with because they were the most articulate with their English. UD is a research school so I understand that PHD candidates were there and also taught undergrad classes. I had three professors within the math department which were obviously in this category and I had tough time communicating with them in office hours and them helping me learn what I did not know. I was an RA so I lived in the dorms all four years and the experience was great. They are slowly closing out the older dorms and the new dorms they are building are spectacular. Most rooms have air conditioning with either 2 or 3 occupants. Most floors have an RA who can help with pretty much any problem you have on campus from not making friends, to academic struggles or health issues. The RA will connect you to the right resource on campus. The Career Service Center was phenomenal at UD. I went there often to update my resume, linkedin profile and just get career advice. They helped me every time and were happy to do so. I went to the fall career fair in my senior year and received two interviews from some of the top companies on my short list. I ended up taking the job at a contracting company. If you go to the Career Service Center they will give you the tools to get you where you want to be."

"The University of Delaware was everything i could have dreamed of. Coming from out of state as a community college transfer i was nervous at first to join a place so new, and so big. My advise to students looking at UD is to take class seriously. The University really does give you opportunities to set a career path, But it is up to you to take those opportunists and run with them. i would strongly recommend UD to anyone looking."

"I studied Management Information Systems (MIS) at the University of Delaware with a concentration in Finance. The MIS department has a ton of knowledgeable professors and a broad range of courses and concentrations. The courses that were taught throughout this program gave me a wide variety of both technical and business knowledge that enabled me to start my career with a great company right out of college. I would highly recommend the University of Delaware to anyone that is considering a career in Management Information Systems."

"I am currently in the University of Delaware's inaugural class for an MA in Speech-Language Pathology. The classes are great and are taught by people who are very knowledgable in the field (many board certified specialists), and the on-site speech-language and hearing clinic is gorgeous and provides ample opportunity to observe fellow classmates' therapy sessions as well as a safe spot to practice therapy before going to external placements. Considering that UD's Physical Therapy is ranked #1 in the nation right now, I have no doubt that SLP will be as well in the coming years."

"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. Overall, my degree in Criminal Justice enhanced my interest in advocacy and provided me with more discussion based classes that appealed to my interests. The teachers in my degree were willing to help guide our interests and taught the subjects in a manner that was clear."
