Each year several student leaders are selected to speak to new students during this ceremony about what being a Blue Hen means to them.

The selected student speaker will be someone who is actively engaged in the campus community; excited to welcome new students to UD; willing to serve as a role model for new students; and is proud to be a Blue Hen.
To be considered, students:
- Must be in good academic and disciplinary standing with the University.
- Must have and maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA.
- Must possess strong communication skills.
- Must display professionalism and school spirit.
- Must be a current University of Delaware freshman, sophomore, or junior.

Once final decisions are made, the selected student speaker(s) will meet with the event organizers to finalize their remarks prior to the event in August.
