Delaware Colleges and Universities

One of the original 13 colonies, diminutive Delaware stretches from the Piedmont of the rugged Appalachians to the scenic beaches and waterways of the Chesapeake Bay. If you love the outdoors, you won't be bored in the State of Delaware. Cities like Wilmington, historic Dover, and rustic seaport towns like New Castle and Lewes, attract tourists and students alike. Beachcombing is the order of the day just south of Cape Henlopen.

Newark is proud home to the University of Delaware, founded as Newark College in 1833. In busy Dover, students choose Wesley College and Delaware State University for their higher education. In Wilmington -- an easy drive to the historical, entertainment, and sporting diversions in Philadelphia -- you'll find Widener University School of Law and Goldey-Beacom College.
