9:40 a.m., Nov. 1, 2012--The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is producing a movie and needs students to help with the first major scene. 

Delaware: The Movie, slated for a winter 2013 premiere, will begin shooting its first major scene this Friday, Nov. 2, between 2 and 5 p.m. on The Green.  All current students and student groups are invited to participate, as well as alumni, faculty and staff.

The University of Delaware's Assistive Medical Technologies Club is working to provide special devices from ride-on cars to walkers to children with mobility limitations.

Keeping students on track

University of Delaware advisers and faculty are now armed with a powerful new system, called the Blue Hen Success Collaborative, to help them quickly identify students who are struggling and help them stay on track to graduation.

The movie follows a current UD student free-running across campus in pursuit of a local celebrity. 

Two other student roles are currently being cast: the runner’s male and female best friends. For consideration, interested students should e-mail a photo of themselves to delawarethemovie@gmail.com

Undergraduate Admissions senior associate director Amy Greenwald Foley says, “There are so many great stories to tell about the University of Delaware. While we can’t do it all in seven to nine minutes, we’ll make a serious effort. Having strong representation from so many members of our community is key to the success of this film and recruitment efforts of UD.”

Foley says to think of Delaware: The Movie as “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (minus the '80s) meets Run Lola Run (minus the violence).”
