The planning committee for the University of Delaware’s 1743 Welcome Days has announced a public speaking opportunity for returning undergraduate students – the chance to be a speaker at the seventh annual Twilight Induction Ceremony on Monday, Aug. 27, which will welcome thousands of new students to UD’s Newark campus.

This exclusive experience is open to proud Blue Hens who are actively engaged on campus, willing to serve as role models for incoming students and excited to take part in the University’s official welcome ceremony. Additionally, qualified candidates must:

• Be in good academic and disciplinary standing with the University

• Currently have and maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average

• Possess strong communication skills

• Display school spirit and professionalism

• Be a UD first year, sophomore or junior who will be returning to campus in fall 2018

Following an application review and interviews with the 1743 Welcome Days leadership team, one highly qualified student will be selected to participate in this year’s ceremony.

Interested students may apply online now. Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 24, and the winning speaker will be notified no later than May 25.
