            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.
