The Office of Development and Alumni Relations is seeking the assistance of UD employees during Alumni Weekend, which will take place June 5-7.

Housing application changes

In order to manage the occupancy of University of Delaware housing so that all second-year students who wish to live on campus for 2016-17 have the greatest opportunity to do so, the housing application process for returning and upper-division students will change significantly beginning in September 2015.

Over 4,400 alumni and friends have already registered to attend, and without Alumni Weekend volunteers the event would not be able to happen. To sign up, visit the Alumni Weekend volunteer registration form online.

All volunteers who work five or more hours receive free admission into Friday's Mug Night Dela-bration or Saturday's Lunch with the UD Mascots, both on The Green. Volunteers eligible for this free admission will be able to register for their free event on the same volunteer registration form. Volunteers are also able to register spouses, guests and children on the same form at full price.

Alumni Weekend

Held the first weekend after Commencement each year, Alumni Weekend is a tradition that is growing in popularity and in size.  More than 5,000 Blue Hens and friends attended in 2013, participating in over 60 events and activities such as Mug Night, the Blue Hen 5K, President Patrick Harker's State of the University address and the Alumni Wall of Fame Ceremony.

Office of Alumni Relations

The University of Delaware Office of Alumni Relations promotes a lifelong relationship between the University and more than 160,000 living alumni, all of whom are members of the UD Alumni Association, by providing programs, events and awards for alumni and students, maintaining traditions and fostering Blue Hen pride.
