When record rainfall hit the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina earlier this summer, flooding left thousands of citizens homeless. A UD student was among Army ROTC cadets who responded to provide assistance.

According to the Registrar’s Office, UD currently welcomes more than 1,800 international students from 100 countries to campus. 

A full list of the flags on display to honor these individuals in Trabant University Center and Perkins Student Center can be found at the USC flag website.

The USC currently sponsors 37 multicultural student organizations on campus, including 12 culturally based fraternities and sororities. These groups can be found online at the StUDent Central portal.
