UD Residence Life & Housing were nice enough to ask me to do a quick Q&A on my memories of dorm life. And though we all remember crazier stuff from college life, some of my fondest memories of the dorms are just the low key day-to-day moments; cramming into a friend's room to watch a movie, checking out a floormate's CD collection, hanging out in the floor lounge, even just adventures in laundry room.

Newark (/ˈnuːɑːrk/ NEW-ark) is a city in New Castle County, Delaware, United States. It is located 12 miles (19 km) west-southwest of Wilmington. According to the 2010 Census, the population of the city is 31,454. Newark is home to the University of Delaware. Newark was founded by Scots-Irish and Welsh settlers in 1694.

This book is a MUST BUY for any U of D alumni who attended school there from the late 1980's to the mid-1990's. Darren captures so many classic U of D and Newark places and events that it will make you want to bust out your old Balloon mug, throw on a Love Seed Mamma Jump CD, and hang out on a Skid Row porch with some old buddies. While there are some who will say this book plays up to U of D's party side... they're right! But I didn't know anyone (even the 4.0 crowd) who didn't hang out at the Beach, grab some Wednesday night nachos at Deer Park, or enjoy some grub at The Scrounge.

I've passed this book around Newark Delaware. The Deer Park and East End crowds start reading it and wont put it down. They're laughing and remembering details about dorms or college life that they haven't thought about in years. Anyone who's into the music scene just gets around town will also be surprised how many details are in there that they've forgotten.

The book also does a lot to clear up rumors and truths about the music scene, the history of Newark's biggest community concert "Wilburfest", and the politics and the resourcefulness of students to keep their music festivals alive.

It's rare that a book like this comes out. For a twenty year period; all the hard work of the local musicians, all the good times of so many students, overcoming the obstacles of college living, and just plain growing up is celebrated here.

This book is endorsed by SkidFest - need I say anything more.

To call this the definitive student book about college life at the University of Delaware is to call The Godfather a decent little mob movie. This book has it all! The memories - both forgotten and comfortably remembered, the myths and legends, the characters and the events - it's all here. Wonderfully collected and organized by Darren Kane from the testimonies of hundreds of students from 1987 - 2007 (and, in some instances - beyond), Glory Days at Delaware is a warm, informative and laugh-out-loud hilarious valentine to our wonderful college years, the friends we made and the memories we savor. Pick one up - heck, pick up several. Give them as gifts to fellow Blue Hens and alumni who will thank you from the bottom of their hearts in letting them feel young again. It's true you can never go home again, but it sure is fun to visit once in a while!

I graduated from Delaware in 1999 and I found myself reading this book and saying "Gosh I haven't thought of that place, or that restaurant, or street, etc. in so long." When you spend four wonderful years somewhere it is nice to be reminded of why you loved it so much and this book truly covers it all!

This book covers everything that is UD. I know, for me, my memories of college can sometimes be "hazy". This book does an excellent job of bringing back those memories in a clear and concise manner. I highly recommend this book for anybody who set foot on the UD campus.

When the author contacted me about providing information for his book, I had no idea it would end up being a 438-page walk down Blue Hen memory lane. Mr. Kane did a great job compiling 20 years of school and school-life history from an alum's perspective. It was a fun read.
AMAZING book! For anyone who experienced UD between 1990-2006, this book is a godsend get it NOW!! Very accurate and nostalgic, i will show this book to my kids!
