Grad orientation

A large contingent of more than 700 new University of Delaware graduate students was welcomed to campus during a daylong orientation event held Wednesday at Clayton Hall.

In the first week, a taste test of the chosen eight entries will occur.  Students who participate will be asked to vote for their favorite flavor and after tallying the results, the competition will be narrowed down to four finalists. 

The next week, more taste tests and voting will lead to two finalists.

Votes will be tallied and the winning flavor will be announced during Homecoming Weekend. Prizes will be awarded to the winner and one randomly selected participant.  

The taste test schedule is as follows, with all events running from at least 11 a.m.-1p.m: 

• Thursday, Oct. 6 -- The Green, near Gore Hall 

• Thursday, Oct. 13 -- Trabant University Center 

• Thursday, Oct. 20 -- UD Barnes and Noble Bookstore and Perkins Student Center
