Blue waves, golden sand and blue and gold sunglasses… they’re all key to celebrating Blue Hen pride at the Jersey Shore! The Northern New Jersey Alumni Club invites us to join them for the second annual Beach Party! You’ll enjoy great food, refreshing summer drinks, and—most importantly—people like you who cherish their Delaware connections.

Open to all ages of alumni and family, there will be an all-you-can eat BBQ (complete with salads, fixings and corn on the cob), live entertainment / DJ, emcee, contests, games and drink specials all day (21+).

Come anytime between 3:00 and 6:00 and just look for the UD table for your wrist band to get all of the specials. Wear your UD gear and have fun mingling and networking. The event is rain or shine.
