I started UD in 2016 in the graduate program. This school is absolutely awesome and I highly recommend it. My graduate experience has been excellent and can't wait to become an alumnus of this school.

Professors are excellent. There are TAs available for difficult classes that hold study Sessions in the evening. Career services is very helpful, internships and co-ops are encouraged and they have a great "Hire a Flyer" network. Campus is clean an students are polite and well-dressed. Unfortunately, the drinking culture predominates and clubs are weak, not intellectually stimulating for those that would prefer something other than drinking games n sports. The school speaks about Community yet the are some racial tensions developing due to the predominance of wealthy white students. Community seems to be a term used to cram more in student houses. There isn't much going on besides basketball and then drinking afterward in student housing parties. Freshman dorms are not the best.
