Join us for Alumni Weekend 2012

 Fun, Food, Music and Prizes

This year, the College of Education and Human Development is hosting several events to help our alumni reconnect with each other during this fun-filled weekend.  


CEHD Alumni Reception – Friday, June 1, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.    

The College of Education and Human Development is hosting its alumni reception al fresco this year. Join us under the Big Top on the lawn of Willard Hall as we reunite faculty, alumni and friends to share memories and celebrate your accomplishments.  

This year, attendees will have the chance to win autographed memorabilia from CEHD athletes and other exciting prizes.  While dining on complimentary hors d’oeuvres & beverages, enjoy live music – compliments of Shane Palkovitz (HDFS’12) – and learn about exciting initiatives under the leadership of our new dean, Lynn Okagaki. 

Following our reception, you can head down the street to Mug Night, UD’s most popular event, from 8 – 11 p.m. on The Green.

3rd Annual Jane Davidson Forum on Play – Saturday, June 2, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Join us for the third annual Play Forum created in honor of former UD Lab Preschool Master Teacher Jane Davidson, who had an extraordinary ability to teach young children through play. At a time when play is disappearing from many schools, this part-day forum will highlight the critical role of play in young children’s development and will focus on how professionals in the field can effectively articulate and demonstrate the importance of play.  This forum will provide 4 training hours.

This event will take place at the UD Lab Preschool, 459 Wyoming Road, Newark
$20 Registration Fee includes Breakfast and Lunch
