We are excited for you to join us this year as we celebrate the momentous occasion of our 50th Groundhog Anniversary.
The longest standing UD tradition consists of a proclamation involving the President and a groundhog sighting on the mall, a 5K run sponsored by Student Foundation, sporting events and a celebration at Groundhog Park for students, faculty, staff and alumni. With live bands, mini-bonfires, food, s'mores, hot chocolate and more, there's something for everyone.
The event is planned and sponsored by SPUD with the help of the Groundhog Committee and in conjunction with the Office of Student Activities and Alumni Relations.
Champagne Breakfast, 9:00-10:30am (Haggar Cafe)
Join the Senior Committee as we officially kick off Groundhog festivities with the Champagne Breakfast. Enjoy a free breakfast in the cafe with mimosas and hot chocolate.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of our unique tradition means we're pulling out all the stops. The party this year is one for the books and we're going to go big. Alumni Relations is happy to join forces with the students this year.
We have something for everyone this year! If you want to wear galoshes and head out
to the park, you can. If you want to stay warm and toasty inside the Rat you can!
If you want to traverse between both events, you can!
In addition to the traditional groundhog celebration, the Office of Alumni Relations will be hosting an alternative groundhog extravaganza in the Rat!
