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.

The thank-a-thon and the make and take, in which students will construct banks, will be held from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Trabant University Center dining area, the Perkins Student Center lobby and the UD Barnes and Noble Bookstore.

Students will have the opportunity to write thank-you notes to the many alumni who have given their time and financial resources to help create opportunities and experiences for students. All students are also invited to create UD inspired banks to start saving their money for their senior class gift.

In the evening, the Class of 2013 is invited to Kildare's Irish Pub on Main Street to share in the excitement and kickoff of the Senior Class Gift Campaign.

The senior class gift program is an opportunity for students to show their appreciation for the many opportunities they have had at the University. Seniors are encouraged to give back to any area for which they are passionate.

The event will be held from 5-8 p.m. and there will be free food and the first 100 attendees will receive free T-shirts.
