Campus Stories

New Blue Hens

The University of Delaware's flock of Blue Hens grew by three this year thanks to the generosity of Wesley Towers, an alumnus and former member of the UD Board of Trustees.

Meeting the donors

The University of Delaware Celebration of Scholarship – Athletics, held April 27 at the Bob Carpenter Sports/Convocation Center, brought UD athletes together with donors who support scholarships.

The winners of the competition will be announced during the Homecoming Pep Rally at 4:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 11, on the Laird Campus turf field.

Students must use the blank banners supplied by the Office of Alumni Relations, which can be picked up at the George Evans House (next to the Trabant University Center at Main Street and South College Avenue) during regular business hours from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

All banners are due back to Alumni Relations by 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3, and will be hung in the Trabant University Center throughout Homecoming Week, Oct. 7-13. 

Three prizes will be awarded: 

  • First place: Winners will take the field during football pregame, get special front row seats in the student section and receive UD merchandise and a $100 gift certificate to Main Street. 
  • Second place: $100 gift certificate to Main Street and a framed certificate. 
  • Third place: $50 gift certificate to Main Street and a framed certificate.
