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.

Fifteen submissions, decided upon by social media interns in the Office of Communications and Marketing, will then be chosen as finalists and posted to the Blue Hen Says Facebook page.

The photo that receives the most “likes” by noon, Monday, Feb. 18, will win and serve as the page’s cover photo for the rest of the semester. 

The student who takes and submits the winning photo will also win a gift card to the University’s Barnes and Noble bookstore.
