Congratulations Future Blue Hens!!

Arpita Making Calls   On Wednesday, March 20th, Arpita, Kevin, Ellie and Kelsey, telephoned  telephone approximately 100 students who received letters this week from UD admissions indicating that they have seats in the fall 2013 freshman class, and that they have been admitted as teacher education majors.  The busy high school seniors who were contacted were excited and eager to learn more about the University of Delaware.  The ASPIRE callers described the school’s climate as active and very busy with TONS of clubs, opportunities to travel, and many, many special interest communities such as ASPIRE to join.  Some parents intercepted the calls, and they seemed equally excited, with many indicating an interest in visiting the campus again during Destination Delaware.  ASPIRE will host a table on Sunday April 7 from 6:00-7:00pm in Trabant to welcome families who attend Destination Delaware.
