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.

The episode chronicles the Rockwood Ice Cream Festival that happened on June 28-29 at New Castle County’s Rockwood Park, and specifically the “Best Sundae on Sunday” competition that took place at the festival. 

The UDairy Creamery was one of the 10 creameries entered in the competition. Its entry, Rockwood Carnival Cardiac Craze, was a funnel cake topped with one scoop of nanner nutter, junk in the tree trunk and caramel corn, then topped with salted caramel, homemade caramel bacon popcorn, candy apple slices and Oreo whipped cream, with a fried Oreo on top that was sprinkled with powdered sugar. 

Of the filming and the competition, Melinda Litvinas, UDairy Creamery manager, said that she and Jennifer Rodammer, creamery supervisor, had “such a great experience sharing the UDairy Creamery story on camera. Competing with such a crazy concoction our staff created made us so proud. It's some well-deserved national attention for those that have been involved in the creamery, past and present.” 

The festival featured ice cream served by dairies and ice cream shops, 25 restaurant and snack vendors, a beer garden and at least 30 local businesses and 15 non-profit organizations.
