7 p.m., May 28, 2005--At the University of Delaware’s 156th Commencement May 28, representatives of the senior class announced that they have collected $47,000 to improve the area behind the Perkins Student Center that is known as the “Beach.”

The Class of 2005 exceeded its original goal of $30,000 by 57 percent. To date, the senior class has received commitments from more than 1,220 students, parents and friends.

“This is, by far, the most money raised by a graduating glass, and 50 percent more than the Class of 2004, or $22,000,” UD President David P. Roselle announced. “This accomplishment truly displays a great sense of pride in the University of Delaware and a commitment to sustaining its level of excellence. I want to thank the Senior Class.”

Brian Budd and Dhiren Ponnambalam, co-chairs of the senior class gift committee, presented Roselle with the gift on behalf of the Class of 2005.
