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.

A Vita Nova dining experience is on the UD Bucket List of things to do before graduation, and a popular Delaware tradition for faculty, staff and families visiting campus.

For more casual fare, The Bistro offers a small plate menu, extensive beverage selections and a three-course theatre menu for guests attending performances on campus. The Bistro is open Wednesday-Friday from 5:30 pm. 

Vita Nova will open for lunch on Monday, Feb. 15, and dinner on Wednesday, Feb. 17.
