Newark has a population of around 30,000 residents, including the student population at the University of Delaware, the state's largest university. Newark has a number of accommodations for visiting families and prospective students. The town is a nice blend of quiet, small town, but is within one or two hours of several major cities.
Newark is located in the northeast part of the state, close to the Maryland/Delaware border and just south of the Pennsylvania border. It is a centrally located area, great for day trips to New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. Wilmington and Baltimore?all of which are less than two hours from Newark.
