Excellent Dialogue with the President

The “Dialogue with the President” ended up being a very successful event, just like last year. We had a great turn out and there were more than fifty students who showed up. Dr.Dan did not have time to rest from all the questions that students were asking him.Questions ranged from housing issues, lottery, what UD is doing to be environmentally friendly, international students, renovations, expansion of the university, student acceptance rate, increase in applicants, the new General Electric research facility being constructed, the Institute in China - where students can go to study and faculty do research. Other questions posed to Dr.Dan were UD’s rankings, the challenge of keeping the close-knitted UD community amid the expansion, funding for clubs through SGA. It was an outstanding event and we were there from 6:30 p.m until 9:00 p.m. In the meantime, check back I will let you know what else the PE’s are doing. This week, we are going to dinner with Dance Marathon, a fundraising organization on campus, which helps out the children’s medical center.
