From reunions, e-zines, mentoring opportunities, alumni awards and exclusive event invitations – we have a lot to offer our graduates. There are also many ways that alumni can give back to DCU whether that is offering their time, funds or expertise.
In the pieces below, our alumni share what DCU means to them and the reasons why they believe it is important for graduates to keep in touch. We invite you to explore their stories and to update your contact preferences today.
