On the morning of August 29, a Monday, the incoming cohort of graduate students in the art history program gathered for the first time at Old College Hall. We greeted one another and talked of our respective programs—4+1, MA, Ph.D. and Direct Ph.D. programs—prior educational backgrounds and learned about various resources at UD.
One such resource is the program in Museum Studies and Public Engagement, whose director Kenneth Cohen joined us in person to present this year's academic offerings and events. Another one is the University of Delaware Museums, with galleries in Mechanical Hall and Old College. An advanced doctoral student, Ashley Rye-Kopec, currently the curator of education and outreach at the UD Museums, welcomed our new students to the campus galleries and discussed past projects led by art history graduate students as well as future opportunities for those interested in museum work. We returned to the grand lobby of Old College for a lunch and more conversation, joined by some of the current graduate students, who shared their experiences and insights, as well as some useful tips for life in Newark. On Thursday September 1, Maren Cornett, Small Curtis and Jaime Margalotti from the University Library and Special Collections introduced incoming students to the many resources available at Morris Library. It was a great way to kick off the new academic year.

The Department of Art History also welcomed a mixture of incoming freshman majors, transfer students and those interested in learning more about our majors. We were joined by Lois Stoehr, the new internship coordinator for arts & humanities at UD, who discussed internship opportunities.
In addition to introducing students to our vibrant art history community we talked about student research and study abroad possibilities, as well as the new joint-major programs and the 4 + 1 programs. Students were excited to receive Friends of UD Art History gift bags with water and snacks to sustain them during university orientation.
