UD President Patrick T. Harker with student

From Our President

Who said being UD president is all hard work?

Last spring, I had a barbecue at my house and invited everyone in the Class of 2014 who contributed to the Senior Class Gift. As you can see in the photo above, we had a great time. As you can also see, I’m pretty terrible at beanbag toss.

Next to me is Brielle Gerry, 2014 recipient of the Emalea P. Warner Award. Not only is Brie the outstanding woman of her class, she’s also a lot better at lawn games than I am.

By the time you read this, I’ll have already welcomed the Class of 2018 to UD. I look forward to cheering on our newest Blue Hens through many successes to come and witnessing their deepening relationship with each other and with the University they call home.

And, just in case, I’m working on my beanbag-toss skills.

Patrick T. Harker
President, University of Delaware
