This year, DePaul will celebrate its sixth annual Blue Demon Week. From Sunday, Jan. 27, through Sunday, Feb. 3, the university will host activities designed to bring the DePaul community together and make us proud to be Blue Demons.

From a dodgeball tournament to a birthday party for DIBS, DePaul's mascot, the celebratory week is packed with events for Blue Demons across campus and beyond. Have any old t-shirts from past schools or other universities?​ Swap them for DePaul shirts any day next week at the Office of Student Involvement. Show off your Mario Kart skills at the Blue Demon Grand Prix on Jan. 29. Show DIBS some love at his 20th birthday bash on Jan. 30. Chow down with other DePaul students at the Pasta Dinner on Jan. 31. To finish out the week, cheer on men's basketball v. Providence at Wintrust Arena on Feb. 2 and women's basketball v. Marquette​ on Feb. 3.

Because service is at the heart of DePaul's Vincentian mission, there is an opportunity to give back during this year's Blue Demon Week. The university will host its annual Blue Demon Challenge on Thursday, Jan. 31. A gift of any size can help the university reach its biggest goal ever - 2,000 donors in a single day.

A full list of events is available on the Blue Demon Week website. Follow #BDW2019 to see all the Blue Demon Week event updates, news and photos from around campus.
