In 1843, it was renamed Delaware College following its relocation to Newark nearly eight decades prior until finally, in 1921, became the University of Delaware after merging with a women's college consisting of 58 students.

            A great University that seems to only be getting better!

            I like the acquisition of the old Chrysler Plant. The administration is developing pockets of activity in the area's of business, health care and engineering that are crucial to preparing students for what lies ahead. I spend quality time on main street with my family, the kids love it. The growth at the school has not hurt the enviable charm of a small town college. It's a hub of activity with something for everyone.

            Some of the best years of my life

            The University of Delaware is the quintessential college experience. From its red brick buildings with white pillars, to its many grassy quads where students can be found lounging, studying, and throwing frisbees, UD is one of the most beautiful campuses I had and have ever seen. The college has a rich history, offers one of the oldest and most expansive study abroad programs, and boasts and impressive faculty in all programs. There is so much to do on campus and around the surrounding areas. I could not have asked for a more perfect, well-rounded college experience. It's definitely the gem of the East Coast public education institutions.
