Connecting with the Lerner College this spring

Lerner Virtual Visit Days

As you are making your final decision on where you will attend college in the fall, we are offering multiple ways to connect with the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics this spring. Our Lerner Student Stories Sessions, Lerner Virtual Visit Days and UD Decision Days offer three unique experiences for prospective students and their families to connect with us and learn more about life as a Blue Hen. Learn more about these opportunities below.

Lerner Student Stories

These unique “fireside chat” style sessions are focused on the student experience at UD’s Lerner College. From choosing their major to landing their dream internship to joining a Lerner student group, current business students will share how Lerner’s active and supportive environment has enabled them to discover their passions and achieve their goals. There will also be a Q&A session where you can ask your specific questions to our diverse panel of students.
