College Colors Day
Blue Hens everywhere are encouraged to wear blue and gold apparel to celebrate Delaware Colors Day on Thursday, Aug. 29.
They are also invited to vote for the University of Delaware in online College Colors Day Spirit Cup balloting, which can be completed at this Facebook site.
The events are part of the national College Colors Day celebration presented by the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) to kick off the fall sports season.
Delaware Colors Day is being held as the Blue Hens football team opens the 2013 season, hosting Jacksonville (Fla.) University in a contest under the lights at Delaware Stadium on Aug. 29. Game time for the season opener is 7:30 p.m.
Blue and gold spirit wear is available from the University of Delaware Barnes and Noble Bookstore.
Also, UD is participating in the national College Colors Day spirit competition and is seeking fan support through online balloting to help win the College Colors Spirit Cup and $10,000 toward the general scholarship fund.
Blue Hens fans can visit the College Colors Day website to register to pledge their allegiance to UD. All registrants are entered to win prizes.
