Parents Fund Helps Blue Hens Take Flight
It's tough to let go and watch your child grow into a young adult, but that's what many parents do when they send their child to college. Whether a commuter or residential student, there are new worlds and new opportunities that open up at college – and mom and dad often feel both sad and glad for their Blue Hen.
The Parents Fund is a way for parents to reach out and help secure their student from afar.
"I love the University of Delaware and so does my son Alexander," says parent Pamela Dalsey. "I gave to the Parents Fund because it's a wonderful school and my son is having a tremendous experience."

The newly created Parents Fund provides Student Life with valuable resources to support the education mission of the University.
"The Parents Fund is a new opportunity for UD," says Michael Gilbert, Vice President of Student Life. "It's also an opportunity for parents to help their students stretch their wings in healthy, positive ways by supporting Late-Night Programming, First Year Experience, Career Services, Healthy Hens, and other student activities. The Parents Fund keeps the student connected and grounded while still letting them fly. The best of both worlds."
