Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: The Core curriculum's emphasis on the pursuit of wisdom, truth and virtue encourages a level of intellectual
dialogue and personal reflection that is invaluable in today's society. Whether you are pursuing a business major or a biology major, you have the opportunity
to dive deep into the writings of great thinkers, such as Aristotle and Shakespeare,
with your classmates. And, UD's small class sizes provide a dynamic environment to
interact with your professors and get all of your questions answered while discussing
these great works.
