Spring into Success is a two-day conference for first-year undergraduate students held at UD in early February. Students will have the opportunity to network, attend presentations, and participate in workshops focused on Academic & Career Success, Personal Development, and Student Involvement & Engagement. For questions about conference registration and early move-in, contact the Office of Residence Life & Housing.
UD students who complete at least 30 credits during their first year in college are more likely to graduate in four years. Talk with an advisor about developing an academic plan that includes both the correct number and the appropriate type of credits needed for making progress toward degree completion. You may want to consider taking a course during winter session to stay on track.
During the winter break, students are encouraged to arrange a job shadow experience with someone who works in their field of interest. Job shadowing may involve taking a “behind the scenes” tour of an organization, attending team meetings, interviewing people who hold positions at different levels of a company, and identifying a mentor who can assist you in evaluating potential career options. To connect with UD alumni who may be willing to host your visit to their place of employment, log in to Handshake.
If you have a knack for creating, adapting, displaying, and marketing clothing and accessories, a career in the fashion industry may be a good fit for you.
Students interested in the restricted majors, Apparel Design (BS) and Fashion Merchandising (BS), should submit the change of major form found here no later than February 15, 2019 to be considered for acceptance in the Spring. Admission to these majors is restricted; that is, they are limited by academic requirements (such as GPA), availability of resources (such as faculty supervisors), or physical space limitations (such as appropriate laboratory facilities).
