Alumni & Friends

Alumni for a lifetime

You're only a student for a few years, but you're a Trojan for life.

We're proud of our alumni and what they accomplish when they leave campus. So if you're an alum, we encourage you to send us updates on career successes and important life events. We share this news through our alumni newsletter and magazine. Be sure to sign up for the alumni newsletter or check out the alumni magazine to share your own news and see what your classmates are up to today.

If you want to show your Trojan pride now that you're off-campus, you can order a DSU license plate or get involved with the alumni board. Be sure to stop by campus to visit or attend an alumni event throughout the year. We're always happy to see you!

Support future alumni

Our students benefit from a range of scholarships that have been funded by alumni like you. If you are able to give, we invite you to learn more about the DSU Foundation or make a gift online.

“After attending a DSU alumni social gathering in Scottsdale, Ariz., I realized that I want to become more involved with my alma mater because of all the opportunities the school has given me.”
