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 SMAs will live-tweet during events, post photos and video, and communicate with fellow students through their Twitter accounts.
