Clothing drive held

ELI CAP, Cosmopolitan Club work to keep community warm


12:55 p.m., Nov. 4, 2013--The CAP Cohort Program at the University of Delaware English Language Institute (ELI) and the Cosmopolitan Club, a graduate student organization at UD, held an inaugural winter clothing drive in October at various locations across campus.

The CAP Cohort Program is a program at the ELI in which conditionally admitted international students engage with and transition into American and university culture. An important part of this program is a service component that promotes integration into campus life.

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.

Students in the CAP Cohort Program collaborate with their team members, with other cohorts, and with UD undergraduate peer mentors to plan, organize and execute service projects to benefit the UD, Newark and ELI communities.

The project for this session was the winter clothing drive, which had four different locations on campus at the Trabant University Center, Perkins Student Center, South Green (Morris Library) and North Green (Sharp Lab).

“Response on campus was great and our students were able to collect a great amount of winter clothing,” an organizer said.

The cohorts have chosen the Clothing Bank of Delaware-Friendship House in Wilmington to provide with the collected clothing.
