A day in the life of a Crusader

Click on the date to register:  Monday, February 18, 2019

High school students and prospective transfer students, along with their families, are invited to spend a day in the life of a UD student during our Crusader Preview. Get a feel for college-level coursework by sitting in on a class (during the academic year only); enjoy a meal with current students in Haggar Café; learn more about spiritual life on campus from Campus Ministry; familiarize yourself with campus on a tour, where you'll see classrooms, student hangouts and residence halls. Crusader Preview is a great opportunity to gather more information about UD. Your admission counselor will be available to meet with you to answer any questions you have about the application process, scholarships, financial aid or student life. You'll also be able to dialogue with current students at our student panel. We look forward to welcoming you to campus!
