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.

More than 70 families obtained information from more than 20 vendors from the campus and local communities.

Present were UD Police officers, including a K-9 officer, as well as emergency medical technicians (EMTs) from the University’s Emergency Care Unit.

The children interacted with the police officers and EMTs and were allowed to walk through the ambulance and sit in the front and back of the police car.

The officers spoke to the children about being safe and provided them with crayons and coloring books that discuss stranger danger, bike safety, bullying and other related topics.
