University of Delaware Reviews
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.
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.
University of Delaware was highlighted for me for the atmosphere and environment. The campus provided a combination of a small town but also the college campus life I was looking for. In terms of the Bachelors of Science degree I received, I thought it provided the challenge I was looking for and also the assistance and guidance students appreciate from good standing relationships with professors. I would recommend this University to undergraduate students looking for an effective but also gratifying education.
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.
The University of Delaware biology program required students to take a wide range of challenging science courses that prepared me well for graduate school. The biology courses offered allowed students to customize their education to their interests. There were also additional opportunities to take courses in other areas such as exercise physiology.
The University of Delaware and biological sciences department has provided me with a strong background. The diversity of classes my major required and the exposure to different teachers/teaching styles has prepared me to enter PA school with a quality education. My classes varied in size, from 200 to 20 students, but I never felt like just another number. Teachers offered numerous office hours and extra help sessions to get to know their students and to offer their help outside of the classroom. In addition, my involvement in a sorority has provided me with numerous networking opportunities.
The University of Delaware was a wonderful place to receive my education. I got involved easily on campus and felt very much as home even though I was from over 3000 miles away! My professors were attentive and passionate about their work, beautiful place to live and walk around
