May 6: Dark Arts concert

Founded in 1996, the Dark Arts Performing Dance Company at the University of Delaware is marking its anniversary with a concert titled "Memories and New Beginnings: 20 Years of Artistry in Motion" at 7 p.m., Friday, May 6, in Mitchell Hall.

May 6-7: Digital Pedagogy Lab

A Digital Pedagogy Lab at UD on May 6-7 will feature experts in using technology to teach, learn and collaborate.

Entering the registry only requires some paper work and a simple mouth swab, which is less then a 20-minute process. For those who are matched with someone in the registry, a blood plasma donation is all it takes 75 percent of the time. 

In the past five years, the Fightin’ Blue Hens have entered more than 1,000 people in the National Bone Marrow Registry through the Get in the Game Save a Life program.

To celebrate the five-year anniversary, UD is hoping to register 600 people. Students, faculty, staff and members of the community are invited to attend the event.
