10:16 a.m., May 29, 2013--The University of Delaware Honors Program partnered with Temple University to promote common initiatives during the inaugural Honors Blog Week, which was held April 22-26.

The event, developed by the editors of 186 South College, the UD Honors Program’s blog, aimed to bring together students, faculty and creative minds to discuss what it is like to be a part of the wider honors community. The posts ranged in topic, but many focused on challenging readers to pursue new opportunities and to think outside the box.

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.

“This year, the focus was on getting our students to imagine the world outside of their majors, to broaden their interests and to be creative about the ways they can have an impact on their communities,” said Kelli Shermeyer, the staff adviser for 186 South College.

Each day, both blogs posted about daring to do something different -- rethinking what is “art,” exploring the world of social media, discovering the benefits of a diverse course load and rebelling against current trends in mass media.

“I am hoping that this is an initiative that will continue to grow. It exposed both teams of bloggers to another college community filled with bright, energetic writers,” Shermeyer said.

Posts from Blog Week are archived at 186 South College (UD) and the Honors Lounge (Temple).
