Alumni events

Alumni events are a great way to re-connect with classmates, meet fellow alumni, and learn more about D&E today.

In addition to the annual Homecoming Weekend and other campus events, our regional Alumni Chapters are increasingly active. Each chapter aims to create events in areas where large numbers of alumni live to bring D&E alumni together in friendship and fellowship. Would you like to host an alumni event in your local area? If so, please contact Director of Alumni Engagement and Support, Wendy Morgan.

Traveling to Elkins for an alumni event? We have provided a list of area accommodations to help you plan your visit.
