    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Newark, Delaware. Small college town USA. Located in New Castle county, about 45 minutes south of Philadelphia proper, Newark's main draw is the University of Delaware, a medium size school of about 20,000 with a fine national reputation and a fairly large endowment of about 1.4 billion US dollars. The town itself is about 31,000 strong but takes on a quiet atmosphere during the university's down times.

    Being a typical college town of local bars, and small eateries, Newark does have a bit of history being founded by Scots-Irish and Welsh as early as 1694. The American Declaration of Independence was signed by 3 locally educated residents George Read, Thomas McKean, and James Smith, graduates of Newark Academy which would later merge to become the previously mentioned University. The British and American forces fought a few miles outside of town at Cooch's Bridge, flying the Stars and Stripes flag for possibly the first time in battle.

    The center of town is called "Main Street", a common and not so original name. There are miles of park lands close to Newark which are great for many outdoor activities from biking to hiking. Occasionally one may run into an Olympic level figure skating athlete as the University of Delaware Figure Skating Club's current director has trained 36 world champions. US vice president Joe Biden studied here and was once a member of the local Fightin' Blue Hens football (American style) squad which receives great support here. Saturdays in the fall transform this sleepy town into an Autumn festival of colors, bands and beer, as students and local residents enjoy 5 or 6 home football games.
