Forum and Reunion Weekend 2010 proved to be a gala Dela-bration, a grand celebration of those things distinct to the University of Delaware and its loyal Blue Hen alumni.
Festive Dela-bration events were held across campus, from Friday’s well-attended Mug Night held under tents on The Green to Saturday morning’s Blue Hen 5K run and walk around the central campus. Events also included college showcases, a family-oriented Boardwalk night and alumni gatherings.
UD President Patrick Harker shared "A Vision of Excellence" at town hall-style talk Saturday morning in Mitchell Hall. He highlighted many of the accomplishments of the past year and also discussed goals for the University's future.
Outstanding professional and public service accomplishments by some of the University's most distinguished graduates were recognized with the induction of 10 individuals into the UD Alumni Association Wall of Fame. This year's inductees attended a special ceremony, along with family and friends.
Four classes gathered for special events as part of the 2010 Forum & Reunion Weekend -- the Class of 2005, the Class of 2000, the Class of 1985 and the Class of 1960. Those classes were celebrating their 5th, 10th, 25th and 50th anniversaries, respectively.
