University of Delaware Reviews
When I had decided to attend UD, I was completely convinced it wasn’t the best place for me, and that I would probably transfer after my first year, and I was 100% wrong. I’ve just completed my first semester, taking intriguing courses, making amazing friends and loving every minute of being a blue hen. I want to tell everybody I know to attend, it is the greatest place on Earth!
So far my experience at the University of Delaware has been very pleasant! It has wonderful events for students and has an amazing staff to work with! The classes, that I have been taking, are very informative about topics I'm interested in. A big plus about this college is that it's next to main Street, where a lot of students can work.
I love the University of Delaware. The campus is in prime location, right on main street. Main street is full of restaurants, activities, and shopping! The school is amazing. Classes are good sizes, with professors who care about your education. Every professor has office hours, with a main purpose to help you.
