Life After Graduation

As an alumnus/a of DePaul, you are joining a network of more than 176,000 alumni, many of whom live and work in the Chicagoland area. The Office of Alumni Relations (OAR) is dedicated to fostering a lifelong connection between alumni and the University. As a graduate, you’re automatically a member of the alumni community.

The OAR also plays an important role in developing alumni-to-alumni connections through alumni chapters or groups, social media platforms, and alumni events such as Alumni Weekend or Alumni University.

To learn more about the many benefits of being a DePaul graduate, and how to stay involved, visit our website.

Class of 2017 Legacy Gift

The Legacy Gift is the annual graduating class gift in support of scholarships. Last year, the Class of 2016 left their legacy with nearly 1900 gifts raising over $21,000 for future students. The Class of 2017 will now continue this tradition by leaving a legacy of their own. 

By making a gift of any size, you not only demonstrate your commitment to DePaul University and its mission of giving back, but you will also receive a legacy cord at cap and gown pickup in June. Wear your cord at commencement to show your support for the Class of 2017 Legacy Gift. 

Make your gift today.
