How's it going? I am going into my junior year of college in Massachusetts and am looking at transferring for the Spring 2010 semester. I was just looking for some input on the University of Delaware and its surrounding area. I have not had a chance to visit yet and would greatly appreciate some background info before going.

Hi Bryan6,

I'm a grad student at UD, so I can provide you with some information from that perspective. Newark is very small - just a short main street - and public transportation is limited (available, but not plentiful) - so if you don't have a car, you will be pretty much bound to campus. The total population of Newark is about 28,000 and the student population is 20,000, so that gives you some idea of the size of the place. This is my third college town and it's pretty nice as college towns go. The campus is quite pretty - sort of a toned-down version of, say, the University of Virginia. I get the impression that the undergraduates are very social, so I think this would be a fun place to finish out your undergraduate education. The current president is doing a lot to raise the profile of the place. Do you have any specific questions?

University of Delaware has a reputation of a very good school (academically). We visited there when my youngest son was looking at schools, and I would agree with Katreese...beautiful campus.
