2:51 p.m., Oct. 2, 2013--As Homecoming 2013 begins, the University of Delaware encourages Blue Hens everywhere to share and enhance their experiences using social media. 

For the third year in a row, the official hashtag to represent Homecoming is #UDHC.

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.

Once designated for Twitter only, students and alumni can now also use #UDHC on Instagram, Vine and Facebook to share their Homecoming experiences and interact with fellow Blue Hens on campus and across the world. 

The social media team in UD’s Office of Communications and Marketing has created a Homecoming 2013 Storify story, which will be populated by pictures, tweets, posts and videos by everyone who uses the #UDHC hashtag by the end of Homecoming weekend. Similar to the Storify stories created for Alumni Weekend and 1743 Welcome Days, the goal of a Storify story is for everyone in the UD community to be able to contribute to and tell the whole Homecoming story.
