As another Homecoming Weekend approaches, I invite every Blue Hen to bring the Blue and Gold to life in spirit, tradition and celebration.

All of us—faculty and staff, students and parents, and more than 160,000 alumni worldwide—have memories of UD and reasons to celebrate our connection to this special place. That is what Homecoming is about ... looking back with fondness, reconnecting with old friends, reliving memories and creating new ones, and showing pride in our University.

I encourage each and every one of you to spend Homecoming here in Newark, taking advantage of the many activities we have in store. I’ll be looking for you—please stop and say hello so I can welcome you home.

With Blue Hen Pride,

Pat Harker
