2:51 p.m., Oct. 2, 2013--As Homecoming 2013 begins, the University of Delaware encourages Blue Hens everywhere to share and enhance their experiences using social media. 

For the third year in a row, the official hashtag to represent Homecoming is #UDHC.

Campus Stories

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.

Once designated for Twitter only, students and alumni can now also use #UDHC on Instagram, Vine and Facebook to share their Homecoming experiences and interact with fellow Blue Hens on campus and across the world. 

The social media team in UD’s Office of Communications and Marketing has created a Homecoming 2013 Storify story, which will be populated by pictures, tweets, posts and videos by everyone who uses the #UDHC hashtag by the end of Homecoming weekend. Similar to the Storify stories created for Alumni Weekend and 1743 Welcome Days, the goal of a Storify story is for everyone in the UD community to be able to contribute to and tell the whole Homecoming story.
