A Year In The Life

A Year in the Life of a UD Student

This coming year holds a new set of challenges for students. A Year in the Life of a UD Student was created to serve as a resource and to further your knowledge on the transition which your son or daughter is embarking. You have played an important role in the development and success of your student, and you will continue to play a significant role in the life of your student throughout his or her time at UD.

The topics included in this month by month synopsis should provide you with the knowledge and available resources to help you address questions and concerns that may arise throughout your son or daughter's time at UD.

Just as we encourage your son or daughter to get involved, we also invite you to get connected to the UD community by attending Family Weekend, athletic events, signing up for The Odyssey - e-newsletter for Parents and Families, and promoting UD pride to the outside community. The Parent and Family website is also a great way to stay inclUDed and find information. We are excited to work with each of you throughout the years.
