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.

Through the course of the campaign, more than 1,070 seniors -- about 29 percent of the class -- made gifts, the largest number of participants of any senior class in UD history.

“I thank Anna and Scott, the entire Class of 2013, and the friends, families, and faculty who supported this terrific effort,” UD President Patrick Harker said. “You chose to leave your mark on UD with gifts that represent your varied interests, causes and passions. And we're only too happy to celebrate the uniqueness of this class. I'm grateful you've chosen to give back to the University of Delaware so generously.”
