Alumni Association

The DePauw University Alumni Association is made up of more than 35,000 alumni who live in every state and in countries around the world.

Alumni have never been more important to DePauw, and there are many meaningful opportunities alumni are seizing to engage with the University and make a difference in the lives of students. All alumni are asked to take four mission-critical actions in support of DePauw University: Go, Give, Help, and Connect. 

We invite you to learn more about our Alumni Association Board of Directors, the GOLD Alumni Board, read unique alumni profiles, and learn more about some of our alumni award winners.

ALumni Legacy Families

Opening Weekend Legacy Family Photo

Love for DePauw runs deep. In some families, it spans generations.

Each year, DePauw has enrolled some of its most promising students with the help of DePauw alumni. Our incoming classes have many students who are the children, grandchildren, or siblings of DePauw alumni. This longstanding tradition strengthens the connection between alumni and the institution.

Throughout the year, the Office of Alumni Engagement hosts or supports special events for alumni legacy families. Typically, these events include lunch on move-in day for first-year students and their families, a private reception prior to graduation for seniors and their families, and events during Family Weekend in September.
