Coming Up

Double Dels sought

If you met the love of your life while pursuing your love of learning at UD, the Messenger wants to hear from you. We're looking for love stories from Double Dels-married couples who met at the University. Send us a short reminiscence about how you met, or a special date or activity the two of you shared during your college years, and we'll print a selection in an upcoming issue. Be sure to include full names (maiden names, too) and the years you graduated. Send your stories to Beth Thomas, assistant managing editor, Messenger, University of Delaware Office of Public Relations, Newark, DE 19716 or by e-mail to Beth.Thomas@mvs.udel.edu
