Join the UD Family


Class is just the beginning of life at UD. From lectures to sporting events, from art to science, the campus overflows with laughter, camaraderie and inspiration at the beginning of this new school year.

Discover the UD Community

This scholarship, and the occasion of us coming together this afternoon, is a testament to the involvement of this community in the lives of our students but also in the lives of their families. We all come together to nurture and develop the minds and hearts of young people. We come together in times of tragedy to grieve but also to remember. Now, we do our little part to remember and acknowledge this life that impacted so many, the important impact this life had on our university and that this scholarship will have going forward. Thank you for entrusting C.C. to us in the first place, and for allowing us to support students, through this scholarship, to an indefinite time in the future.

Both in Rome and in Irving, much of my formation has come from being a part of the UD community. I have forged friendships that I expect to last a lifetime, grown through my leadership positions on campus, and been so supported and encouraged by my incredible professors. My four years at UD — and studying Aristotle’s Politics — have taught me that a true community exists not simply for the sake of living, but for the sake of living well.”
