VOLUME 26 #1

Current cover


Headline: Once upon a time in 1743

The story begins on a quiet country road, in the modest home of a pious man. It ends in the present day, on a campus filled with proof of that visionary’s success.

Between then and now, the University of Delaware’s first 275 years unfolded as many lives do—punctuated by moments of greatness and even existential pain, but always moving forward in hope.

It is a story rich in history, steeped in tradition and interwoven with obscure legend. It is ultimately and essentially a story of us, happily ours to cherish—then, now and for the years to come.
