What's Apex?

Apex: Celebration of Student Scholarship and Creativity

Apex is UD's annual event to celebrate students who have presented and/or published articles or creative works, and those who have been selected for honors and/or graduate school. Faculty submit works students have done as part of class assignments as well as independent research, service learning, and other work done beyond the classroom. The multi-day event includes opportunities for students to share their work, the launches of UD student publications The Edge and Articulate, as well as an alumni keynote speaker. As a campus community, we are excited to honor students’ scholarly work!
