University of Delaware is amazing, it instantly became home to me. Residence living is fun and offers a lot, professors are approachable and easy to understand, and the campus is a perfect size. I love the look of the campus also, the long greens and classic brick buildings.

I had an amazing freshman year at the University of Delaware and I would not trade it for anything. The dorms, the professors, the friends I made, the classes were all unforgettable. It is relieving realize, after completing my first year, that I know I made the right decision by attending the University of Delaware.
