New Castle County Blue Hens and friends can connect with each other through events and the New Castle County Blue Hen Network Facebook Group for camaraderie, networking, local advice and recommendations and sharing their mutual love for the University of Delaware. 


Join local events, organized by UD Blue Hen ambassadors in your region, that range from happy hours to family-friendly ice cream gatherings and museum tours to cheering on your favorite sports teams at the stadium. Many events are sponsored by the UD Alumni Association (UDAA), which allows them to be offered at discounted rates.
