The Atlanta Network

Being a DU community member in this city will have you feeling peachy in the pines! With 1200 community members within 100 miles of Atlanta, this community has been one of the most active networks at DU. This group hosts social gatherings, DU sports watch parties, and educational opportunities to help get and stay connected. The DU Atlanta Network is eager to connect with you and is open to alumni, parents, current students, and friends of DU.
