Responsibilities &
recruitment territory

An interesting fact about the University that I discovered recently.

For the first time in UD history, we had a Rhodes Scholar and a Noble Prize winning recipient in the same year!

The best thing to see or do when visiting campus

The best view of UD is standing at the top of Main Street and looking down the North Green to Memorial Hall. It is particularly beautiful at night when Memorial Hall is lit up.

Words of advice for a student who is applying.

Don't get your heart set on one college at the beginning of the application process. We are particularly proud of the University of Delaware but there are a lot of great schools out there!

The coolest Delaware experience

Watching Elena Delle Donne play basketball last year. She averaged over 26 pts per game, ranking her 2nd in the nation. UD Women's Basketball will be even better this year!
