Twice the Love
There’s no denying that Blue Hens flock together—but some like it so much they decide to make a lifelong commitment. Double Dels, or couples who are University of Delaware alumni, represent a special part of our UD family.
For Valentine’s Day, hear from a few Double Dels about what brought them together and how they now continue to make their relationships work, even when feathers occasionally get ruffled.
