Dare to Explore

Social media updates from students across the globe to be featured


11:38 a.m., Jan. 2, 2014--The University of Delaware community is invited to join the adventures of Blue Hens abroad this winter with “Dare to Explore,” a popular UD social media campaign that features pictures and updates from students spending Winter Session around the world. 

From the beaches of Costa Rica to the finest art in Florence, the range of updates to be featured on UD’s Facebook and Twitter accounts will represent the diverse and exciting opportunities UD’s study abroad program has to offer. 

Global Stories

Fulbright awards

Three University of Delaware students and an alumna have received word this spring that they will travel abroad as part of the newest class of Fulbright Student Program award winners.

Peace Corps plans

Two University of Delaware students, John McCarron and Bridgette Spritz, have been selected as Peace Corps volunteers and will serve in Ghana and Rwanda.

UD Global Study Ambassadors

Selected by social media representatives in the Office of Communications and Marketing, Global Study Ambassadors are the students who provide content for Dare to Explore.

Some Global Study Ambassadors are working together with fellow students in their programs to create blogs that will provide much of the Facebook content for Dare to Explore, and others are tweeting about their adventures using the hashtag #UDAbroad.

The Institute for Global Studies’ Twitter account, @UDGlobal, will also retweet updates from Global Study Ambassadors throughout Winter Session.
