Student Spotlight: Lia Naselli

Lia is a former University Studies student who is now a junior majoring in Communication Studies. She is a member of Harrington Theatre Arts Company and a brother of Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity.  She is a proud singer, dancer, and musical theatre buff. She also loves to travel and try new foods. This spring she will be participating in her first UDaB trip!

Describe your process for choosing your major. Were there any resources you utilized to help you?

I mostly used the UD website and online catalog. I dove deep into all the majors that interested me and looked at the courses they offered. I also utilized the Career Center resources, such as Handshake and the career counselors, and took a career assessment test, which helped me understand my career-related values and personality.

What advice do you have for new or prospective UST students?

I have SO much advice! But for now, I’ll just say: Don’t beat yourself up about not knowing exactly what you want to do right now. You will eventually find your way! But if you feel stuck, don’t be afraid to ask for help. There is no shame in needing a little guidance!

What do you know now that you wish you had known when you first started at UD?

I wish I had known that ANY major has endless possibilities! I was so focused on choosing the perfect major in order to get the perfect job. But that doesn’t exist. You can construct your major(s) and your career into anything you want it to be!

The student Appellate Board members will have the opportunity to join UD faculty and staff to assist in creating an impact on the community through their service as the final reviewing body for pending student conduct matters. As a member, you can gain valuable critical and analytical thinking skills, improve your time management and professionalism, and learn about civic engagement, ethics and integrity.

Applications are available here and are due by this Saturday, March 9th. Check out the UDaily Article for more information.

(Note that the article states the deadline to apply is March 3rd, but it has been extended.)

Blue Hen Bounty

Blue Hen Bounty is a student-run food pantry that provides food and hygiene products for students in need. If you are a little short on cash one week or could use some assistance more regularly, they are there to help. Health and wellness are vital to academic success, so don’t let the stress of daily life pile onto the stress of studying for a test.

They are located at 276 S College Ave and are open on Wednesdays from 4-5 PM, Thursdays from 3-5 PM, and by appointment. You can email them at for more information, to schedule a time for pick up, or if you wish to donate. Remember to bring your UD Student ID with you.
