Around campus

    In keeping with the college atmosphere, our campus roundup is all over the place this week. From sustainable practices to a new law school, and yes, neighborhood relations, regional college students have their hands in everything.


    University of Delaware announced yesterday it may welcome a law school come 2015. Approval from the American Bar Association would open the door for the university to develop a financial plan and curriculum for the school.
