Communities

Lifelong Connections

The relationships you build at DU don't end when you walk across the commencement stage—instead, our alumni maintain thriving action groups and communities, based locally and digitally. Our alumni groups preserve the friendships and goals that students form during their time on campus. Find a group that represents your passions and continue with meaningful work as you build your career and your life after graduation.

Pioneer Alumni Legends

The PALs are a group of alumni who graduated 50+ years ago and participate in ongoing campus events and activities to engage with each other, university faculty, staff and leadership and show their ongoing Pioneer pride. The PALs celebrate with two signature events per year including the Emeritus Tea in June and the Summer Soiree in August.

During Spring commencement, we celebrate the 50th reunion and welcome the class to return to campus and reconnect with classmates and friends. A new class of PALs are inducted into the Pioneer alumni Legends at the Emeritus Tea annually.

For questions about PALs please contact alumni@du.edu.
