Flash mob

Surprising then entertaining visitors at the Delaware State Fair, a UD Cooperative Extension 4-H flash mob burst onto the scene July 22 to raise awareness about the Food Smart Families healthy eating program.

Making the transition

University of Delaware Associate in Arts Program graduates headed to the Newark campus this fall got some timely tips on achieving academic success during Transitions Day.

Through the course of the campaign, more than 1,070 seniors -- about 29 percent of the class -- made gifts, the largest number of participants of any senior class in UD history.

“I thank Anna and Scott, the entire Class of 2013, and the friends, families, and faculty who supported this terrific effort,” UD President Patrick Harker said. “You chose to leave your mark on UD with gifts that represent your varied interests, causes and passions. And we're only too happy to celebrate the uniqueness of this class. I'm grateful you've chosen to give back to the University of Delaware so generously.”
