A-Day, which stands for Activities Day, is a family friendly event organized and run by the students of Delaware Valley University to benefit campus activities and clubs.  This three-day event brings the campus and the surrounding community together for educational exhibits, competitions, entertainment, fun, and great food such as thick, homemade milkshakes and delicious funnel cakes.

The first A-Day was held May 21, 1949 on the campus of the National Agricultural College.  At that time, A-Day was a single day when the students of the college worked together to showcase various agricultural displays and exhibits.  Today the tradition continues with the hard work and dedication of the students of Delaware Valley University.  The entire event is planned and implemented by the students with minimal guidance from the university’s staff, faculty, and administration.  Since 2004 A-Day has been part of the Pennsylvania State Association of County Fairs.  Members of the university and local community are invited to enter their food items, artwork, or handicrafts for judging in the fair.
