Can't attend Alumni Weekend? We can still celebrate with fellow Blue Hens and friends, reminiscing about our years on campus at Dela-brations in TWO locations in the Bay Area! Your first two drinks are on us.

In San Francisco: Enjoy Thirsty Bear's organic, hand-crafted beers, well drinks, sangria, house wine, soda, juice and bottled water, as well as appetizers.

In San Jose: Be introduced to world-renowned Spanish wines and beer, as well as appetizers featuring La Catalana's culinary creations and traditional tapas. Plus, live music begins at 7:30.

We will join Alumni Weekend by live streaming on-campus festivities. Wear your blue and gold, so you'll feel like you're back on The Green!

Thanks to the UDAA for their generous support of this event!

Refund deadline is May 25, 2018. Registration is encouraged so we have a head count, but walk-ins are welcome at the increased price.
