Top colleges

Forbes magazine has ranked UD 29th in its listing of top public universities based on what students get out of college.

Partnership for change

Understanding how to effectively address student alcohol use, especially the increasingly dangerous trends associated with binge drinking, has challenged virtually every educational institution across the country, including the University of Delaware.

Organized by staff and students of CANR, Ag Day works with over 80 organizations to bring hands-on exhibits, demonstrations and activities for kids and adults alike. From petting a farm animal or racing cockroaches, to listening to local bands and enjoying the UDairy Creamery’s newest flavors, there is plenty to keep visitors busy all day.

Ag Day will be held at CANR’s Townsend Hall, located at 531 South College Avenue in Newark. Admission and parking are free, with minimal charges for food, pony rides and hayrides, with the profits going back to student and community organizations. And don’t miss the popular Ag Day plant sales offered by the UD Botanic Gardens, Master Gardeners and Horticulture Club. 

For general information or for those who are interested in becoming an exhibitor or vendor, or in performing a demonstration, visit the Ag Day website or call 302-831-2508.
