Join fellow UD alumni families for a perfect fall day adventure! We will meet at the “Pick Your Own Pumpkin” area of Butler's Orchard. An Alumni Representative will be there at 10:30 am to pass out tickets, and the event will start at 11 am. You and your family can then pick your pumpkins from the patch (pumpkins are not included in registration fee), and then tackle a corn maze, play corn hole or jump in the hayloft! Bring the kids for a fun-packed morning, ending with apple cider and fall-themed snacks with other area Blue Hen families.

DC Evening w/ Batsheva Dance Co.

November 18, 2014 6:45 PM
The Kennedy Center (2700 F Street, NW, D.C.)

Cost: $38

6:45 PM - Pre-show drinks and ticket disbursement
7:30 PM - Show

Spend an evening at the Kennedy Center with other Blue Hen dance and performance art enthusiasts. Come share a drink (cash bar) starting at 6:45 PM before attending this rare performance! Meet us to the left of the Kennedy bust where we will hand out tickets and either stay there or somewhere nearby to enjoy refreshments.

This performance, Sadeh21, "is a voyage of striking stage imagery. The magnetizing performance creates a thick, emotional resonance that echoes throughout the work.” Last seen at the Kennedy Center a decade ago, Israel’s acclaimed Batsheva Dance Company – which once enlisted Martha Graham as its first artistic advisor – marks its return with one of Artistic Director Ohad Naharin’s newest works.

There is a limit of 2 tickets per alumnus.

Refund deadline: November 4.

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:
