Pulling an all nighter never seemed so exciting before. One computer science class, and I felt like I could tackle and computer programming question out there. Most classes are similar in the amount of learning that goes on. Everywhere you turn, you will see students seeking help or offering help. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

    A smaller institution allows for more personal attention than from a university with a larger span of students

    The University of Delaware is one such university that aims for student success (in their major, anyway). Students endure a brutal first few semesters with required courses that may or may not benefit the student, and are rumored to purposefully lower their GPA (so that the college may take away scholarships and offer them to incoming freshman). Despite this, many find that the college with their intended major wants nothing less than their individual success, and will do everything in their power to make students put their best foot forward.

    Being from Delaware, University of Delaware (UD) was the last school I was interested in attending because like so many others I wanted an out-of-state adventure. But upon starting at UD in the fall of 2013, I not only fully embrace my new hometown university but also cringed at the idea of experiencing college at any other academic institution. The University of Delaware has stolen my heart with its beautiful campus, excellent professors and various study abroad options, and the amazing extracurricular/greek/social options.

    The campus is in the prefect location. Its a cute suburban college town nestled nicely between Baltimore and Philly. The atmosphere is great and the people are kind!

    The University of Delaware has a very college atmosphere. The campus is absolutely gorgeous, but also huge, thus forcing students to be more responsible and adopt time management skills in order to make it to classes and/or meetings in a timely fashion. Staff and students would like to see you succeed and while classes can be competitive, teamwork is key.

    UD wants its students to succeed, and there is a great balance between research opportunities (which there are a lot of!) and education (the teachers care about their students, not just their research). The university is big enough to offer almost everything under the sun, but not so big that you feel like you are just a number. From my experience, if you have a desire to pursue something, they will help you achieve it.
