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 three station times and locations are:

  • Bob Carpenter Center lobby, from 10-11:45 a.m.
  • Gore Hall, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
  • North Green, outside Brown and Sypherd halls, from 11:45 a.m.-3:15 p.m.

Each station has a different prize, so visitors are encouraged to go to each one. 

Apple iPads will be available at each station for prospective students who don’t have smartphones. Whether posting about their favorite part of the day or pictures of their new favorite UDairy Creamery ice cream flavor, each student will get a prize for their contribution. 

The best #BlueHenSummer tweets, photos and videos will be collected and posted to a Storify story.
