Career Fair sets record

UD's Career Services Center hosted its annual Fall Career Fair at the Bob Carpenter Center on Tuesday, Sept. 23, with record-breaking attendance.

TIDE, which stands for Taking Interest in Delaware’s Estuary, includes classroom instruction and discussion paired with field excursions, research lab visits and a tour of the University’s research ship. Campers have opportunities to interact with faculty and design and complete experiments.

Hosted by the University’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment and supported by the Delaware Sea Grant College Program, TIDE Camp covers a variety of topics including habitat loss, saltwater marshes, sediment transport, climate change and alternative energy. Information about UD program offerings for undergraduates is also included.

Students spend one week at UD’s Newark campus and one week at its Hugh R. Sharp Campus, located at the mouth of the Delaware Bay in Lewes. While the program has an academic focus, students also enjoy recreational activities such as volleyball, kayaking and movies.

Applications, which include completing a form available on the program’s website, involve submission of a grade transcript and a letter of recommendation (preferably from a science or math teacher). Any high school student with solid math and science skills and an interest in the marine environment may apply. Tuition is $1,800 and covers room, board, lab and class materials, field excursions and scheduled out-of-class activities.
