Blue Hen Celebration Honoring the Class of 2020

May 30 Celebration


 UD's traditional Spring 2020 Commencement may be postponed, but social distancing won't stop us from celebrating the hard work and accomplishments of this year's graduates. 

Join us online at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 30th for a special celebration for our graduates.

Countdown to Class of 2020 Blue Hen Celebration

The Blue Hen Celebration is not in replacement of a Commencement for the Class of 2020. We expect to provide you with an updated plan later in June as we consider all options. 


Video Capsule


Although we can’t be together on campus this spring, we’re all part of the Blue Hen family. As students prepare to graduate, let’s look back on what they’ve accomplished, who they’re thankful for, and how they’ll take on the world! #UDGrad2020

  Students: Record your #UDGrad2020 Capsule >
