UD DC Club Annual Holiday Party

Wednesday, December 16, 2015
6:30 p.m.

Sixth Engine (438 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, D.C., 20001)

$15 (includes appetizers & 1 complimentary drink; cash bar)

Open to alumni & their guests 21+

Eat, drink and be merry with your fellow Blue Hens at Sixth Engine! Enjoy appetizers and cash bar as you ring in the holiday season with friends and fellow alumni.

This year, we’ll be supporting the DC-area Fisher House. The Fisher House Foundation supports U.S. military member and their families in their time of need, by providing "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one during hospitalization and rehabilitation.

We will be collecting grab-and-go food items (i.e. soup, pot pies, granola bars, etc.), paper products (plates, napkins, paper towels, utensils, etc.), and cash donations that will go toward Target and/or Safeway gift cards.

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

Refund Deadline: December 1, 2015

Join a Committee

The UD DC Alumni Club is growing and we need your help! For those of you that want to help but don't have a lot of time, we've created two committees: the Social Committee and the University Committee. The Social Committee will help plan and run happy hours, game watches, cultural and similar events. The University Committee will help with our new community service and other UD engagements.

Committees are the easiest way to bring new ideas to the club as our membership is rapidly growing. If you have an interest, please email alumnet@udel.edu.

Coach's Corner

The DC Club offers its members the unique opportunity to compete in co-ed social sports leagues throughout the year. These leagues provide an excellent opportunity to meet and mingle with other local DC Blue Hens. All leagues are part of the Capital Alumni Network (CAN, www.dcalum.org) in which our opponents are local alumni representing other schools from all over the country. The club competes in all five CAN sports leagues:


  • Volleyball, Basketball: January-March
