What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
UD is a beautiful and welcoming home away from home. Faculty is warm and inviting, upperclassmen are kind and welcoming, and there's a general spirit of inclusion on campus. You will be challenged academically but supported every step of the way with the many resources on campus, especially in the library or your professor's office.
Taylor from Naperville, IL
UD is one of the best decisions that I have made in my life. I get a well-rounded education that teaches the material as well as how to think critically about current events and challenges me to form my own opinion after looking at all sides of a story. Along with amazing academics, I have also met my best friends here; friends that I know I will have for a lifetime.
Marie from Bellbrook, OH
