By Jen Kouba, Alumni Relations – The Office of Alumni Relations would like to welcome the class of 2011 to the DePaul Alumni Association! As a DePaul graduate, you are automatically part of the association and have access to many alumni-only benefits.
Your connection to DePaul does not stop at commencement—your lifelong connection begins now. Alumni can show their DePaul pride with a lifelong “alumni.depaul.edu” email account
and a free personal web page and web-based storage. Grads can also obtain an Alumni ID card
that can be used to receive university and vendor discounts and grant access to certain computer labs at the university libraries. Alumni can visit the Alumni Center
on the Lincoln Park Campus on weekdays, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., to take advantage of desktop computers, a wireless connection for laptops and complimentary printing. Limited parking is also available.
The benefits don’t stop there! You can use the online Alumni Directory
to connect with fellow classmates and find alumni in your area, connect through our social media sites
and get updates from our monthly edition of eNews. Alumni also have many opportunities to volunteer
with the university to continue living with the Vincentian spirit after graduation.
You also have the opportunity to attend alumni-only events throughout the year all over the United States. There are six alumni chapters
throughout the country. They are located in the Chicagoland area, Arizona, Denver, Southern California, New York and Washington, D.C. These locations and many others host a variety of events including networking receptions, annual baseball outings, theater performances, athletic events and more. Be sure to participate in our special annual events like Reunion Weekend in the fall, Career Week in the winter and Vincentian Service Day in the spring. Full event listings can be found on the event page
on the alumni website, and many are reposted on the insideKellstadt event calendar
Congratulations again to the Class of 2011 on your upcoming graduation. Welcome to the Alumni Association! Jen Kouba (CMN ’07) is Associate Director of Alumni Relations in the Office of Alumni Relations at DePaul University.
