"When I was running for Homecoming Queen, I expressed that no matter where we end up or what we achieve, UD will always be our home. Now that my friends and I have graduated and have started on our own adventures, I feel that way even more strongly. I’ll always be proud to be a Blue Hen, and I’ll always look forward to coming back home." - 2012 Queen, Jenny Lowe

The 2012 Homecoming court members were Marni Copeland, Melissa Deutsch, Rachel Kushner, Maria Marquez, Nicole Rasco, Nick Campagnola, Scott Scheinberg, Zach Sidrane, Christopher Swezey, and Scott Zaleski.
