I absolutely hate the University of Delaware. DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS HERE. This school is not safe, has incredibly high rates of drug use, and the police could not care less about the UD community. I am sick and tired of actually trying to get an education and having everyone around me screaming until four in the morning...on a Monday. People here are immature, close-minded, and self-absorbed. I joined three groups on campus and quit two of them within a week. The social structure is built around cliques and it gets very old. I love UD as a school, for its academics, but socially this university is terrible. If you're like me and don't drink there is literally NOTHING to do on the weekends. Everybody here is getting drunk or stoned (or both) every weekend, sometimes as early as Monday. I am absolutely dreading Saint Patrick's Day for this reason. I will not leave my dorm on the weekends because it's so crowded at the bars. People need to calm down here about their drinking.

I don't love it here like every other freshmen seems to. I also don't like the party scene. Basically there's nothing else to do on a Friday or Saturday night so if you're into that then this would be a school for you but if not, consider looking somewhere else because it's hard to find people who don't party. Also if you do go to parties it's just a bunch of sweaty underclassmen shoved into a frat house or athlete house basement with cheap beer until you're 21 because the bars know how to spot fakes. It's also super expensive if you live out of state. I'm having an okay time but I could be having an okay time at some other college for half the price.

This school is a research institution with mostly huge lecture halls with brilliant professors who lack the essential skills and/or enthusiasm to teach students. Some insult your intelligence and assign a lot of busy work, stifle your creativity, and give out weird, vague exams. Others will mispronounce basic vocab, use improper grammar, be disorganized, be unknowledgeable, and won't act gracious when answering questions. This a very wet campus as the alcohol consumption is well above the national average, at least according to the CDC. Under 21, and your stuck going to house parties and trying to dodge campus security. Over 21 and the scene involving said house parties (greek and non-greek), is the same and will get old after a while.
