Campus Stories

From graduates, faculty

As it neared time for the processional to open the University of Delaware Commencement ceremonies, graduating students and faculty members shared their feelings about what the event means to them.

Doctoral hooding

It was a day of triumph, cheers and collective relief as more than 160 students from 21 nations participated in the University of Delaware's Doctoral Hooding Convocation held Friday morning on The Green.

In addition, TCS is holding a silent auction and gift basket raffle through Tuesday, Dec. 18, and proceeds will be directed toward athletic and playground equipment for the school. Among the items in the silent auction are a pair of Phillies tickets that include Diamond Club access; a UD basket that contains four men’s basketball tickets and UD spirit items; a complete Stampin’ Up starter kit; a basket containing several gift cards; and a hand-knitted sweater and hat.

There are also 18 fun gift baskets that will be raffled including “Italian Night,” which contains a variety of tasty sauces, olive oil and pastas donated by Café Napoli; the “Literacy Tower,” which includes a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble, the complete Twilight series and other titles; and the “Power of Sugar,” which features candy.

All items are on display in the TCS lobby at 459 Wyoming Road, where auction bids can be made and raffle tickets may be purchased. Winners will be announced at the talent show on Dec. 19; those who participate do not need to be present to win.

Information on the talent show and the fundraisers can be found online in PDF format.
