Grand Finale: a life-sized chess game

A life-sized chess game was a long-standing UD tradition that disappeared—we're bringing it back, for the first time in FIFTY years! We're reversing the roles for our new game: two students will compete, directing their chess pieces, represented by members of our beloved faculty. President Sanford and Provost Vorwerk will be our kings—come to the event to see who else is a chess piece! 

Wednesday 29 November 2023 at 4 PM on the Mall
