“This campus echoes with the voices of thousands of students and faculty members who have gone before and have made this institution a true place of discovery and inquiry." - Brian W. Casey, DePauw University President
Founded in 1837, DePauw University is commemorating its 175th anniversary with an 18-month celebration of our past, present and future.

Musical America’s 2004 Conductor of the Year, Joseph Flummerfelt '58, will conduct a concert and speak as part of the 175th Anniversary Distinguished Alumni Lecture Series on April 7. The lecture is scheduled for 2:00 in and will be followed by a choral concert at 3 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium.
As a part of the 175th celebration, the DePauw community is invited to share memories of DePauw to be preserved for the next 175 years and beyond. These memories will help write the rich history of DePauw over the ages, one memory at a time.
