Huntington Learning Center employs a battalion of highly trained tutors who help students succeed both at school and in standardized testing. The academic evaluation, consisting of exams performed in a simulated classroom environment, yields comprehensive data on scholarly strengths and weaknesses, which tutors then use to design a custom learning program and a personalized, in-class obstacle course. During the SAT/ACT exam-prep assessment, college-bound high schoolers complete their gauntlet of choice under test-like conditions of stifled giggles and periodic foghorns. A comprehensive breakdown of the results points students toward areas that need the least and most work.
Since its origins in the late 19th Century, the University of Delaware athletic department has transcended simply what happens on the field or on the court. Indeed, the Blue Hens have hatched professional football and basketball stars. The school’s football team has won six national titles, including three during the 1970s, and its women’s lacrosse team once captured back-to-back-to-back championships from 1981-83. But when fans look around during Blue Hens events, they notice more than points being scored or referees feeding the little birds inside their whistles. They might spot YoUDee, a mascot whose roots trace back to the Revolutionary War, or the school’s nationally ranked dance team pumping up the crowd. Of course, there’s also the school’s marching band, which at 300 members strong, cranks out stirring renditions of the UD fight song.
