The Rehoboth site of Wilmington University, located in Rehoboth Beach just off the Boardwalk on Rehoboth Avenue, will host the kick-off of a year-long celebration of its 15-year anniversary. The special two-day event will take place Friday and Saturday, May 16-17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., both days.

The event will include games and prizes, including free classes and other giveaways in appreciation to the community and its support over the past 15 years. All Wilmington University students, alumni, faculty, staff and employees are invited to visit the beach and join in the celebration along with Rehoboth community residents and visitors.

"This is a great opportunity to show our gratitude to local students and businesses who have embraced us and to encourage others in the community to come in and check out what we have to offer,” said Dennis Huffman, Rehoboth site director.

As a special added attraction, the Rehoboth location will also unveil a new "celebration edition" of its popular art show featuring many works of the site’s talented students.

Wilmington University in Rehoboth currently offers approximately 100 courses and workshops in subjects ranging from computers, social media, art, languages, financial planning and environmental concerns. The university supports regional artisans and businesses through a variety of approaches - including hands-on workshops and local tours. These sessions foster stronger relationships between residents and businesses, ultimately creating a more robust community.

Additional activities for the year-long celebration will be posted periodically throughout the year. For more information, contact Huffman at
