Groundhog Alumni Events

Official Irving Party

All Alumni are invited to attend the Groundhog party at the Madonna Basketball Courts on campus! Join us on Saturday, February 2nd, 2019 at the Party in the Park. 

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. Contact the Alumni Relations Office, at before January 4, 2019 to host a Groundhog celebration in your city.
