Sampling water

UD students collected water samples and conducted laboratory analyses of them in class that combined biology and chemistry.

Director of admissions search

Three finalists in the national search for a new director of admissions for the University of Delaware will be on campus in the first two weeks of May to meet with faculty and staff and present in an open forum.

UD was selected from a pool of more than 500 public four-year colleges and universities. The magazine ranks universities by assessing their quality of education and their costs. This year, Kiplinger's revamped the rankings to give more weight to academic value.

UD ranks 25th, proving UD is a smart money decision, especially compared to some other East Coast institutions -- for example, the University of Pittsburgh (ranked 29th), University of Connecticut (30th), Penn State (51st), Rutgers (43rd), George Mason University (50th) and the University of Massachusetts Amherst (70th).
