What do you love most about UD?

What I love the most about UD is the ability to meet new people throughout campus and create relationships with them, whether it be as friends or finding a mentor.

Favorite class at UD and why?

It's Computer Illustration, because I've been able to create a new skillset within Adobe Illustrator. It's also helped me boost my skills in a field I would like to possibly work in once I've graduated.

Why did you choose UD?

I chose UD because it was close to home and it was something that I knew. Also, my mom would've followed me anywhere else, so I thought why not just save money.

Is there anything else about your UD experience you think prospective students and their families should know?

I think one thing I would say to prospective students and families would be to enjoy your time here at UD. Go out and have fun to the best of your ability. Classes can get stressful, so give yourself some time to relax. It'll be worth it, I promise.

What do you like most about your major?

What I like the most about my major is the valuable skillsets I can learn throughout my time at UD. I enjoy using my creative thinking in creating various designs for various circumstances.

What piece of your academic journey has you most prepared to begin a career after graduation?

The ability to connect with my professors and understand my major as I progress through my college career.
