Boost Your Brainpower at Delaware State Universities

When you enroll in college, you want to emerge more wise and learned than when you entered. At Delaware state universities, that desire becomes reality.

Entrepreneurial Endeavors
Do you aspire to run your own business? Students at Delaware universities do more than dream -- they make it their mission to accomplish their entrepreneurial goals.

At Wesley College (Dover), for instance, the SIFE (Students In Free Enterprise) team was selected to compete at a 2006 SIFE USA Regional Competition. The Wesley team is one of 500 who have the opportunity to share their meaningful accomplishments with an audience of business leaders and SIFE supporters. These accomplishments include conducting a small business project selling air fresheners, pilot-testing sponsoring "Rap Battle" performances, supporting the development of the campus radio station, and assisting with the redesign of the campus coffee shop. In addition, 12 SIFE team members and alumni received the President's Volunteer Service Award in recognition and appreciation of their commitment to strengthening our nation and for making a difference through volunteer service. These students also received the SIFE Global Service Leadership Award.

Scientific Advances
There are plenty of other students at Delaware state universities making brainy headlines. In fact, University of Delaware (Newark) senior Liang-I Kang earned national attention recently at the annual conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The biological sciences major presented a poster summary of her independent research on junctional adhesion molecule A to scientists and a panel of judges, and won the 2006 AAAS Student Poster Session in the Molecular and Cellular category.

Her two-year research required extensive lab work, careful data-keeping, and consistent effort. And according to UDaily, the school's online news service, Kang says her research is preparing her for pursuit of both a medical and a doctoral degree at the University of Pittsburgh this summer.

International Intelligence
If you're looking to get schooled locally and abroad, look no further than universities in Delaware. The International Studies programs at Delaware State University (Dover) provide students with opportunities to study abroad in Africa, Latin America, or Europe.

Students in the Namibian Study Abroad program, for instance, find the rural African country the perfect setting for studies in biology, natural resources, agriculture, and economic development. They learn about the management of Namibia's small-scale farms; tour crop science research facilities; attend lectures; receive overviews of agriculture, water, and rural development, as well as education, employment, and labor relations at government ministry meetings; observe the day-to-day tasks of rural people firsthand; and witness and participate in demonstrations in planting, harvesting, food processing, food storage, and the preparation of traditional dishes. Other international study perks have included meeting the executive director of the Namibia Institute for Democracy, the Namibian Prime Minister, and the Speaker of the National Assembly -- the nation's Congress. How's that for boosting your brainpower?
