Following the first snowfall of 2016, the University of Delaware was left digging out from 13+ inches of snow on the main campus in Newark, DE and nearly as much snow on its satellite campuses in Dover and Lewes. The blizzard forced the University to close on Monday, Jan. 25 to remove snow from walkways, steps, and parking lots.
To the delight of their families and friends, the University of Delaware’s newest doctoral graduates were honored at a hooding ceremony, convocation and reception held Friday, December 18, in Clayton Hall. [ UDaily ]
