2:52 p.m., May 29, 2004--Here are some facts about the University of Delaware’s 155th Commencement, held May 29 in Delaware Stadium.

  • Opening the ceremony was the presentation of the colors by members of the University of Delaware Air Force and Army ROTC.
  • On the field were the flags of the 50 states and more than 130 countries that are home to our students, celebrating the role that UD benefactor P.S. du Pont played in establishing the University’s Junior Year Abroad Program, the first program of its kind in the world. Delaware continues to rank among the top universities with study-abroad programs. Graduates who have participated in study abroad during their undergraduate studies were asked to stand. They wore special sashes that featured the colors of the flags where they studied.
  • Grads ranged in age from 20 to 65, with 19 graduates age 60 or older.
  • May 29 was the birthday for eight graduates.
  • Five sets of twins and one set of triplets were graduated.
  • Several members of the NCAA I-AA Football Championship team graduated, including Mike Adams, co-captain and a member of the All-Atlantic 10 Conference, third team; Dominic Santoli of the defensive line and a member of the Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference Team; and Andy Hall, All-American quarterback and the Atlantic 10 Offensive Player of the Year.
