Blue Hen spirit

1:32 p.m., May 28, 2014--As graduation nears, seniors at the University of Delaware often decorate their homes and apartments with sheets sharing sentiments to their parents for their support and to the University and friends for memories made.

To honor seniors showing their "Blue Hen forever" pride, the Office of Alumni Relations is encouraging some friendly competition with a Class of 2014 spirit sheet contest on Facebook.
