Campus and Groundhog Park

Please note, the schedule may change due to weather and other unforeseeable events.

9 am - Groundhog 5K

Student Foundation invites you to join the Groundhog 5K. This year marks 13th run of the groundhog! You'll pay for your entrance fee at the starting line. Please indicate on the registration form if you plan to run in order to assist the Foundation in preparing for the race.

10 am - 1 pm - Kegs and Eggs

10 am - 4 pm - Bookstore Open

Drop by the bookstore to get your tour shirt and other UD swag!

12 pm - Soccer Alumni Game

Alumni v. Alumni Game: Come join the soccer alumni or relax with a beer and food and enjoy the spectacle of decades of UD's soccer greats reliving their Crusader glory days on the soccer pitch. More information at

2 pm - Rugby Game: UD vs. SMU

What is Groundhog without a game of rugby? Throughout the years, the players have changed and sometimes we win and sometimes we lose, but what never changes is our enthusiasm for this alternative (and some say better) version of football.

4 pm - Powderpuff Football: Uppers vs. Lowers

Will age and skill or youth and vigor win this year? Come and watch the girls of UD battle it out on the field. Hot chocolate will be provided!

5 pm - Anticipatory Mass in the Church of the Incarnation

You are invited to join the UD community for Mass. For other local Mass times, look at

7 - 9 pm - Alumni Pre-Party in the Park

No one can tell you there aren't perks of being an adult and alumni of UD now! Groundhog Park will be open to alumni only from 7 - 9 pm. Check back soon, we just might let you in on the bands who'll play for the alumni crowd!

7 - 11 pm - Alumni Groundhog in the Rat

For those who need to warm up from Groundhog Park, those who want better food before going to Groundhog Park, and those who find no need to trample through the woods, Alumni Relations and the National Alumni Board invites you to join us in the Rat for better beer and better food! Tickets for this event are the same as the Groundhog Park.

8:30 pm - 12:30 am - Groundhog: Party in the Park

The party returns for the 50th year! Get your shirt and come to the park for the most unique of UD's traditions! We'll post the lineup soon.
