Before giving away new social media pins this Halloween, UD social media interns asked students what they would do to nab one of the limited edition pins from previous years.

#UDel Halloween

University of Delaware students are encouraged to share their festive creativity through social media by tweeting a picture of their Halloween-themed decorations, pumpkins or costumes @BlueHenSays or @UDelaware

Campus Stories

From graduates, faculty

As it neared time for the processional to open the University of Delaware Commencement ceremonies, graduating students and faculty members shared their feelings about what the event means to them.

Doctoral hooding

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.

Select photos will be included on the University of Delaware’s official Pinterest page.

‘Trick or Tweet’

Additionally, UD’s Social Media Ambassadors (SMAs) will be hosting a “Trick or Tweet” event on Thursday, Oct. 31. SMAs will be stationed at two locations — in front of Morris Library and on the steps connecting the North Green to Main Street — equipped with a new batch of UD’s official social media pins. 

At each station, students can show SMAs a tweet using a specific hashtag (#UDel or #BlueHens) to receive a piece of candy and a pin. Different pins will be available at each station.

As a bonus, students who visit the Trick or Tweet locations dressed in costume can have their picture taken and shared in a special Blue Hen Says Facebook album. 

Costume crafting

For even more Halloween social media coverage, follow SMAs @BlueHenLiz, @BlueHenDana and @BlueHenHillary on Tuesday, Oct. 29, from 8-9 p.m. as they live tweet from Louis L. Redding Hall, where students will be making costumes for patients at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.
