Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

University of Delaware hosted “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day” on April 28th, 2016.  This is a national event and this year’s theme was “Sparking Aha Moments”!  The event provides an opportunity for children to see where their parents work and what they actually do at work.

The events of the day included a welcome by acting president Dr. Frank Newton, followed by a campus tour and job shadowing.  Activities in the afternoon included experiencing the UD police department, getting your ‘Sherlock’ on and learning about a day in the life of a UD student.

It was nice for those of us in the office to get a chance to meet some of the children of our co-workers!
