  • The dorms are much like other college dorms. The rooms are kind of small, but liveable. The atmosphere in the dorms are great, everyone becomes very close in no time…

    The dining hall food will make you gain the freshman 15. There isn't a great variety in food and if you're a vegetarian, well there's not much for you. I will admit that the dining hall does have its good days. But those days are rare and slim.

    I won't exaggerate at all here- the food at UD is dismal at best. They try to give an okay selection but the food is just bland in reality... UD definitely needs to incorporate more vegetarian and vegan options as well. The student centers like Perkins and Trabant have a good selection of commercial places, like Chickfila, Quiznos, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, etc. All in all, food is manageable but not mind-blowing (especially for what the meal plan costs).

    There seems to be quite a few places to eat on campus and the town is full of restaurants! From grilled cheese sandwiches to Irish fare, there's something for everyone!

    While there are many restaurants nearby, the dining hall food is actually great. Although it may have its bad days or leftover days, generally the food is pretty good. There are also spice racks conveniently located in the dining halls just in case anything isn't flavored enough.

    The food is alright. I've had better and worse. Some meals are better than others. If you're a vegetarian or vegan don't expect much.

    The food in the dining hall is like what you would expect, very starch oriented and they cannot cook vegetables at all. But the other options, such as the PODs and student centers offer better options, but at a price.

    The dinning halls are good. They serve different meals every night and give you a vary of meals, so you have more than one choice. There just tends to be many students there at once because there is certain times the dinning halls are open, so they tend to get loud. But they are very good.

    There are countless food options on Main Street (a little city street that intersects part of campus) from sushi to pizza to Chipotle. The dinning halls are mediocre.

    Greek life is big on campus. Many freshman join sororities and fraternities their second semester. Multicultural Greek life is small, but it does exist. Also, if Greek life is not for you, it will not affect your social life at all. Although many people happen to be in sororities, everyone is generally so nice that you'll make friends in classes, in dorms, in dining halls, on the walk to class, in clubs, in activities, and basically everywhere.

    20% of students partake in Greek Life. It's honestly not a big deal whether you do or not. We also have a wide variety of Greek Life. There are also community service and multicultural fraternities and sororities as well.

    Greek Life is a huge on campus. Those who are looking to join a Sorority of Fraternity can join during rush in the Fall or Spring. Many relationships can be created through the Greek Life at University of Delaware

    Greek life is very prevalent on campus, but don't worry! You can still have friends outside of that family. I have many friends in many different sororities and fraternities, and amongst them they are all friends as well. There are not just social groups either, we have service, academic, major-specific, and cultural fraternities and sororities as well!

    Absolutely amazing. The fraternities on campus range from the nice kids you would want your daughter to marry to the party hard psychopaths that don't do anything in school and haze the crap out of their pledges. The sororities are generally attractive and are have number from 170-230 girls in each sorority. They also are very approving of sluts. So frat stars, this is the place for you.
