If you have any questions regarding the recruiting weekend, please contact Caitlin and Emma through this form.

Each year the Colburn Club is involved in greeting new prospective graduate students and organizing a weekend of getting to know UD. In addition to meeting with faculty and being introduced to the program, the Colburn Club puts a special emphasis on conveying to the prospective students the experiences we have as graduate students in our Department, what we do to have fun and how we deal with the ins and outs of everyday grad school life.

A general itinerary includes an overview of the program and individual meetings with faculty, poster presentations by graduate students, campus tours, dinner with faculty and students, social-outings, Colburn Club presentations on student life, and panels where the perspective students are encouraged to ask any question they might have to make their decision about graduate school easier.
