What I wish I knew before coming to UD: I was so nervous about making friends before coming to college, but I have made friends from all over campus, whether it was from the tight-knit Honors community I found living in Redding or from my a cappella group. There are so many opportunities and people to connect with on campus!

Best memories of freshman year: My best memory of freshman year was laying out on the Green with my friends when the weather was nice and petting all the dogs that were out playing.
Here’s Kara with a group of First-Year Fellows. They are in the Redding courtyard, a space where students can hang out to study, play lawn games, and more. The First Year Fellows plan social events throughout the spring semester, including a semi-formal dance and a coffeehouse-style talent show.
Carolyn Richardson (she/her) '26

Freshman year win: I challenged myself to take Honors Integrated Bio/Chem and got randomly assigned two lab partners. They are now my two best friends and I’ve gotten to live in the same dorm as them for the entire year.
