Regional Events

Want to host Groundhog at your home or a venue of your choosing? Do it! You select the date and location, and UD Alumni Relations will help you to publicize the event to alumni in your area. Regional Groundhog events will be "dutch," meaning that attendees should pay for their own expenses.
