Blue Hen Pride

A tradition of spirit

Our student-athletes put up some impressive numbers, on the scoreboard and in the classroom. University of Delaware's rich athletics tradition began in 1889 and continues to this day. Our students, faculty and staff also regularly participate in dozens of intramural, club sport and fitness activities.
