The University of Delaware has given me a better first year experience than I could have ever imagined! It is obvious how dedicated they are to student growth and involvement. Every professor I have had thus far have been intelligent passionate individuals, and it has made the experience even better. The diversity is somewhat lacking, but rarely does it feel like anything but home.

The campus is absolutely beautiful! Loved my professors and the majority of my courses. I learned so much. The Blue Hen Leadership Program is absolutely phenomenal and really prepared me for graduate school and the real world. I was also a part of Greek life and really got a lot out of it. I was given leadership and service opportunities that pushed me to grow and strengthen my professional skills, and live by my values.
I love the University of Delaware! The campus scenery is stunning and the students are very approachable. I had a problem with my dorming situation the first semester, but it did not stop me from having a great experience. I joined several clubs and made a lot of amazing friends. I am a pre-veterinary major, so the classes I have to take are very challenging, but they are durable. The TA's and professors love to help out when someone has questions. There are a lot of group tutoring sessions throughout the week if needed. I definitely recommend attending the University of Delaware.
